Yesterday was the first day of Dale's family reunion. 100 or so people are here from all over the country for the 4 days of the 4th of July Holiday. This happens every 3 years, each time in a different city. Tomorrow we will vote on where the 2017 reunion will be and this will be up to family members who volunteer to host.
So, everyone arrived Thursday, checked into the Cheshire or whereever else they are staying and came here for dinner which was catered by Favazza's Restaurant on the Hill. We had all the drinks, desserts, and tables.
Right away kids began playing soccer in the side yard. Including Charlie.
People began arriving
Stephanie and Chris drove from the DC area and were greeted by great gramma
Then there was sitting around, standing around and talking and having drinks.
Ferdie got quite warm and worn out with all the greeting he did.
The little kids loved the yellow jeep
Back to the grownups
And kids and adults and Ferdie
Then let's eat!
Then it was on to play again
And we do it all over again tonight, this time with fried chicken from Porters's.
