(I have a confession to make - I stole every one of these pictures from my cousin's wife. We didn't take a single picture at the reunion, but I am so happy she took so many great pictures!)
Every other year we have a reunion with our extended family on my dad's side.
It's a great chance to gather family, especially since many are spread out.
I have to say - I have a really great family.
They're all good people, and they're doing good things with their lives.
They've always been so loving and supportive, and it's nice to grow up knowing you have so many people that have your back!
This year all 6 of my grandma's kids were able to come, and a lot of the grandkids (and even great grandkids).
Grandma was having her 89th birthday the next day, so we all had cake and sang Happy Birthday!
She's still so beautiful!
