All of my brothers and sisters were able to attend. However, some of the next generation, and even the third generation could not. As it was, there were 33 of the 49 family members were there. Some had to work, some live too far away. We missed them, but we sure had a good time!
And oh boy! Was there a lot of food!! We opted to do just appetizers, snack foods and yummy desserts, rather than a meal. It was a great idea! I wish I had taken pictures of the food, but it was difficult. Everyone would dig in as soon as a new platter was placed on the table!
I did take a few pictures... well, my favorite future son-in-law did!
Here are the eight of us! I'm the only gal standing.
Here are some of the cousins with their significant others.
My daughter and her fiance' are on the left.
My other 2 kids had school and/or work.
John and me!
We also have a barbecue at Peggy's in the summer too!
