I'm so sorry that I haven't been on here in a while but things have been crazy busy here lately!
One of those things that we did was have a family reunion.
My mom is one of five girls that was raised by their dad because their mom died when they were very young.
So therefore the sisters were extremely close growing up.
When I was young the "sisters" always got together every weekend to cook and play rook.
So I grew up with all of my cousins.
We had so much fun....we would play kick the can, king of the mountain (they had a dirt bank),
baseball, dodge ball, kill the man with the ball...lol....I was tough...had to be...lol.
Those days bonded us for life.
But everyone grew up and had families and moved away and it's been 20+ years since we have had a reunion.
20+ years ago
The oldest sister (Aunt Betty) died so my Dad is sitting in her chair.
There was a memory table honoring those that were no longer with us.
And we had a family tree.
We had a great time.
There is nothing like family.
We felt like we were kids again.
And to prove it these 40 and 50 year olds played some volleyball.
I named our teams Butts VS Guts! lol...it was girls against boys..lol
It was so much fun but..........I couldn't move for 3 days!
I was so sore!
It was a great day and there is no substitute for family.
We must cherish our loved ones while they are still with us.
I love my family!
