last weekend we headed up to a big family reunion on my mother's side. though it was a cool, wet weekend we all enjoyed the 2 days together catching up with family and cousins we hadn't seen for a while, staying altogether in a conference centre in the mountains, and having fun with different activities and games.
there were times to chat
little boys to cuddle and play with
flowers to brighten up the tables
discussions with the men
many yummy meals mostly all prepared by our wonderful cousin caitlin,
her husband steve, and my aunty wendy and uncle mark
an abseiling trip for some of the group - us others watched in
fear as they literally threw themselves backwards off a cliff! ;)
cute mossy rocks and twigs
many happy smiles and grins
and a massive group photo of all 43 of us.
we're so thankful to the Lord for these special family times!
we also enjoyed a visit with friends who lived nearby afterwards,
and it was lovely to catch up with them all!
: how did you spend your weekend? :
