We have the privilege of hosting the family reunion here at Cedar Pond this weekend. We get to visit with so many people we love but don't see very often anymore. Above is a picture of my Hubby and his brother and 4 sisters when they were a tad bit younger, on the family home front steps.My Hubby is the oldest of 6 , the young man with the dark suit and red tie. We live next door to the baby sister and her husband, and down the gravel road from his brother and his family. There will be many of our grown children, and grandchildren and cousins, The only one missing will be Alice ( Wobegone Cottage) she is the little girl on the far left in the front row. Miss you Alice!
"In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future." Alex haleyWe have been busy weeding gardens, setting up a big covered area for gathering in case of rain,and my Hubby is happily planning the menu and will go shopping tomorrow for all the goodies. He LOVES to cook ! I am the set-up and clean-up crew. I actually enjoy this though. We are looking forward to a good time and hope you all have a wonderful summer weekend.
