How many kids can you fit into a kiddie pool? This is really family togetherness.
My husband and I had the privilege of hosting a 2 day Sister's Reunion with my sisters and their families. We gathered here to celebrate being family and the 4th of July. We had gunnysack races...
...water balloon toss and fights.
Children marveled at frogs,
and snakes too. Here my husband is showing the children a snake he found, and being the big kid he is, he chased my sisters around with the snake, to the great delight of the children. They loved seeing my sisters running and screaming. ( Sorry sisters )
The children made their own stick horses,
then raced them.
There were 3-legged races,
An aunt chatting with a niece...
...an uncle cuddling a nephew.
Slip n' slide,
painting bird houses,
a 4th of July parade,
a make your own ice cream sundae buffet with all the toppings and whip cream any kid ( or grown-up ) could want, as much as they wanted.Of course there was barbecue. We had boat rides, lawn games, just sit & visit time.
" Celebrate :..commemorate or rejoice over..." Funk & Wagnall Dictionary
Celebrating family and our country's Independence Day with love and thankfulness, truly a blessing not to take for granted.
