Happy Saturday my friends! We are in the midst of a hot summer, though it's hard to believe that July is almost over. I was at the grocery store the other day and saw the school supplies already out. Of course I managed to pick up some spiral notebooks for only $0.19 each.
Summer means a time of fun. Vacations, bbqs, swimming, and more. But it's also a time when extended families get together for family reunions. My mom and I are going to one today. It's my grandfather's side of the family. I don't think that we've been to one in a couple of years. So we are going. It'll be fun. I found out one of my uncles will be there and I've not seen him in about a year. I don't know what you do at your family reunions, but at mine there is always a dinner, door prizes, a raffle drawing (everyone contributes), sometimes games for the kids to play, and typically card games and other games. And of course visiting. It's the time to catch up with everyone that you've not seen in person in at least year. Facebook so does not count.
Here are some pictures from the last family reunion, which was in 2011 before Grandpa passed away in 2012, I was at for this side of the family.

So tell me about your family. Do you have reunions and that crazy relative?
