FAMILY REUNION AND OTHER MUSINGS......

First up, a Clemmie update. We were gone over the weekend, came home to a skinny bellied dog!! After 2 1/2 days of steroids she seems to be herself! I am cautiously optimistic, and delighted.

On to the weekend...

We had a family reunion for my husbands mother's side of the family. Sadly, she is dead, but her family remembered her fondly and partied it up in Gunderson Fashion!!



We gathered at my husband's cousin's house. They have a large (very large) yard and a pool area to die for. BIG L shaped pool with an outside bar area, shuffleboard court (is it a court?) and bags area. Let the fun begin.





All three of our kids came and got to re-meet some of their Aunts, Uncles and cousins. We all 'teamed' up and played in bags and shuffleboard tournaments, as well as swam, ate and drank! Who knew that my girls and their dad were shuffleboard experts? Is there money in this? They need to join the circuit!! After many elimination rounds, it was down to Jessica and Blain pitted against Scarlett and Mark. Scarlett and Mark came out on top ~ this mom was routing for everyone, and feeling everyone's pain!



Corbin, who burns the candle at both ends, felt the need for a little sleep, and settled in with a little friend. His cousin and sisters took care of that; no rest for the wicked!

It was a great time, with a lot of great people.




Sunday was a day for the boat. After we left the reunion Mark and I headed to the boat. I guess the kids had had enough of 'togetherness' as they opted not to join us. It was a beautiful day...
