Family Reunion

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

My grandparents wanted to get all their 54 great grandchildren together so why not on my grandpa’s 95th birthday? We had an awesome Family reunion. It was so fun to see everyone and especially all the little kids. Growing up I can remember playing at the restaurant with my cousins we would play red rover, tag and tons more we met there for holidays, special gatherings and on Saturdays. I have so many wonderful memories. What a great place to hold a family reunion. I only wish it could have been even longer so I could catch up with everyone. I just thought every family got together like ours and didn’t realize how special it really was until I was older. I am ever so grateful for my grandparents and all the special memories.

Check this out! 

Isn’t that awesome it even made the newspaper! Here are some fun pics from our reunion.


Each family wore different colored shirts. Our family got blue. We are missing my brother Zach and his wife Kristi :( They were unable to make it due to Zach’s new job and his training. Argh.


Here’s Gma and Gpa with their grandchildren. We are missing 2. Zach and my cousin Johnny.


And here is all 54 great grandchildren! There will be 3 more added this year!


Here is the birthday boy with his cake!

We had a lot of awesome games, food and fun. The kids dug in woodchips to find money, there were 3 pinatas, parachute, bouncy house, mini golf, arts and crafts, raffle, bean bag toss and lots more!  My grandma had them put up a temporary fence for the kids and got awesome family friends to watch the kids 4 us! She made amazing food on Friday and ordered yummy chicken on Saturday. No one left hungry that is forsure. There was definitely a lot of work that went into the reunion and I thank all those who helped with it. Ohhhh Ohhh I almost forgot to mention we all were able to leave with a yearbook type thing that had pics of each family, addresses, #’s and info. It was absolutely amazing inside there was also a list of everyone’s bdays and anniversary’s. How great is that?

for a great cause! Someone turned my name in to go to jail for MDA. After doing more research on MDA I am happy to be raising money for a really great cause. If you are able to help out I would greatly appreciate it. Every dollar counts! You can go here to donate money or contact me too.

Thanks so much!
