I LOVE this smile
Saturday was filled with a baby shower, a lunch, and a dinner with Bill's family.
Sunday was a much anticipated event as it only happens every three years---our family reunion. The reunion is my dad's side of the family. I have two brothers and two sisters which today would be considered a big family in itself, but my dad was one of 13 kids! That blessed me with 12 aunt and uncles and 31 first cousins just on one side alone! But it doesn't stop there- the reunion actually starts with my Great Grandparents and down for a total of about 350+ people attending it this year. I have always felt so lucky to be part of a big family.
Just to give you an idea- here is our immediate family, my mom, brothers, sisters, brother-in-laws, sister-in-laws, nieces and nephews.
The next step up and here are the 13 kids (My Uncle Wally and my dad watching from heaven), my first cousins, and their children. Crazy huh?! That's one big family reunion.
But there's more- a couple hundred more! When you start with my Great Grandparents this is our family! They had to take this picture in two sections and put them together just to create this photo.
Like I said this only happens every three years so when it does it is a whole day event. We eat, catch up, play games and our favorite--POLKA! I had the best partner and Logan loved it!
Here he is dancing with Aunt Julie too!
And a good Polka means Uncle Jim is playing the accordion.
But the best part is just spending time together. And these two did a great job at that. Look at these cute cousins. I think Logan is wondering what is on his cousin's head. Don't worry buddy, you'll grow some hair soon.
Poor cousin- I think Logan thought he was a toy.
Just lounging with dad.
And after all that fresh air and fun comes one tuckered out little guy.
