Family Reunion Fun

This weekend found us lounging near the lakeshore for our annual family reunion camp-a-thon. McGyver and I were not able to join the festivities until late Friday evening due to some work commitments but the G-ma made sure that Dreamsicle had a full fun filled day with her second cousins. This year was particularly special as we were able to see one of our cousin's and her family who we haven't seen in years. She is the daughter of my sweet Aunt S and newly departed Uncle H. It was great to be able to catch up with them. They are a bit more refined than the rest of us so I think we may have given them fuel for conversation for a very long time. LOL. Saturday we honored Uncle H in a casual manner which I think he would have appreciated. We also held a babyshower for one of my cousin's daughters. She is a pretty cool chick and I can't wait to meet her sweet little boy when he makes his appearance this fall. As usual the weekend was filled with waaaaayyyyy to much good food and a whole lot of laughter. One of the things that I appreciate about my extended family so much is that there is rarely any drama. We are able to spend 3 days together and no one fights-imagine that! There were 3 little puppies added to the family this year so it was fun to see our German Shephard hide like a school girl from my cousin's daughters husky puppy but think she was all bad when she was near my other cousin's Shitzhu puppy. It was a great weekend and we are already looking forward to next years' outing.
