Family Reunion....Continues

Mama such a good time seeing family, her cousins and nieces. This is her brother's daughter.

I've always loved this gravesite, well, you know, as much as you can love a grave! But behind the church is a little cemetery and most of the people there are related to me! When my grandma was alive and able to go to reunions, she would walk among the graves telling about who was who and at this one (I think), I asked one day who was buried where the little headstone was by the two big headstones...she answered, oh, that was the first wife.

Here's Cathy, Mama and Tommy after we were successfully removed from the bathroom incident I mentioned in the last post.

We have one 1st, 2nd or 3rd cousin (you really lose count in a big family), that mama loves to see each year. Regina's parents were killed tragically in a car accident many years ago. But just to show that senility runs in the family, as we were leaving she came up to hug mama goodbye and my sister says "Tell your mother we said hello" and as my brother and I were gasping in shock trying to get them to zip it up, mama says "Yea, how are they doing?" Well, as brother and I fell to the ground in a dead faint, Regina sweetly says "They're just fine, they're in heaven." As we walked on to the car, Cathy mumbled something like, "oh, ground, open up and swallow me now!" :)

It really was a nice day, I'm glad we went.....I wonder what will happen when the older ones in the family are all gone. Will we still get together and reminisce? Or will we slowly just all drift apart? I hope not. It's a good Sunday, have a great week!

You're so lucky to have a big enough family to warrant a reunion. So happy you all had a great time.

Thank you Leslie! We have a huge family on both my mother's and father's side of the family! I know we're blessed in so many ways and thanks for reminding me!
