Family Reunion

This past weekend was one of my husband's many, many family reunions.  The whole concept is a little strange to me.  My family seems to avoid each other like the plague, but hubby's family is a fairly tight knit group and get together frequently.

I have to admit, Hubby and I were sort of dreading the event.  The traffic we have to drive through is always awful, the location is a couple of hours away and recently, it's been horribly, disgustingly hot.  The thought of hanging around outside and eating potato salad that's been sitting out for hours in 100+ degree weather wasn't overly exciting.  But, we went and had a good time as usual.  The traffic wasn't great, but it could have been a lot worse.  The food was excellent and plentiful (a little too plentiful!) as always and the weather was perfect!  Mid 80's and cloudy, not too humid and a slight breeze blowing most of the time.  It was also nice to catch up with other family members.  I think this was the first year since meeting my husband some 18+ years ago that there hasn't been a wedding or funeral to attend.  That meant, we hadn't seen the majority of his family since last year's reunion.  We had a lot of fun and this year, there was even a photographer there to take a group photo.  Now, if I could only put names to all the faces...
