Family reunion

We had our first family reunion Saturday at my grandmother's home in Leaf, MS.  We had a great day for it!  The sun was shining and the temperature was in the low 70's.  Some of the family wasn't able to make it this year, but we ended up having around 25 attend.  I'm so glad that we were able to visit with each other and catch up with what's been going on with everyone.

Here are a "few" photos from the day (I had taken 104).

L-R  Mom, Whitney, Tommy

L-R Uncle Paul, Tara and Charles

Joe and his daughter Kiersten

Carlette trying not to have her picture taken
Some of the adults got a game going with the kids in the backyard.  It ended up being called redneck volleyball.  It was a game sort of like volleyball, only the net ended up being fence.  The kids had a blast; I even think the grown ups had a good time too!

I'm looking forward to next year!  I hope we are able to continue doing this every year.  I think some people these days are just too busy to have get togethers, but it's important to me that our kids know their extended families!
