Today we had a family reunion, at my BIL's farm, for Hubby's Side of the family. (It would be my FIL's side). The family name is Easterday and I think they are from Austria originally. Anyway, we had a lot of fun so I wanted to share some pictures. First of all we were all asked to wear red, white, and/or blue. I bought the children some red shirts from a thrift store and did a reverse applique on them with their Initial and age. The children love them! I love them now, but wasn't loving them last night when they were giving me a hard time.
At the reunion we have a time of sharing (this year we were to share what our favorite childhood toy was...lot of votes for bikes and big Wheels and a few for Leg0s as well. We also had the officially meeting and everything.
Elisabeth didn't even notice that there was a meeting going on because she was to engrossed in what a cousin had caught...a toad. :D
After the meeting all the children decided to go swimming. (Beloved went swimming as well to keep an eye on the children.) It was such a beautiful day today. I don't think it could have been any nicer, except for the water in the pool. They said it was COLD! And I believe it. Big T and Sweet E's lips started to turn purple after a while. Little E was in the pool for a couple of minutes, but there were too many children and he couldn't take it. So I took him over to the kiddie pool.
Every year hubby is asked to turn the pool into a wave pool. Here is a short video of it. I think after we left my BIL probably had to add more water to the pool. ;) It really was a great day for food, fellowship, and lots of FUN!
