a family reunion

What a trip! We just came home from a super fun family get together straight out of the Cynthia Rylant picture book "The Relatives Came".

*We drove far, real far, with 4 kids under 10 years old in the back. (they all did great!)
*We all stayed at a beach house, hugging in all the hallways, then breaking off into two's and three's.

*We took a few walks on the beach, we even had good surfing waves.

*We took pictures of each other.

*We went to a wedding.
*We played games (the weekend favorites were scrabble and double solitaire).
*We even had a talent show. The talent in our family is incomparable.

***Due to the "key fiasco", I won't be showing any pictures of the wedding. But rest assured, they waited the ceremony until we got there, and the wedding was FANTASTIC. A mental picture to sum it all up is when the bride and groom were hoisted up in the air sitting on there chairs by 8 very muscular men, and paraded around the lush backyard orchard.***
