When I was a young lad my dad's side of the family ALWAYS had parties and get togethers, like seriously all the time. Well, like most Filipino families my parents loved to gamble, like Vegas style! I can remember every July 4th my family and a bunch of my aunts, uncles and cousins would roll up to Vegas, Circus Circus was the happening spot back then (well for us anyways). This continued for many many years, but then it seemed like after my dad passed away in 2000, the get togethers, parties and such kinda stopped, sad I know, I don't know if it was my dad that was the partier or what, but it was a bummer!
Then recently the idea of having a Pellicer reunion began to ruffle arounded, it came down to two locations, Palm Springs or Vegas? Duh? Of course the big hit amongst us all was Vegas, so what the heck, today we're off to Las Vegas for a Pellicer Reunion/Easter weekend. Thank you to my cousin's for planning and making it all possible! I know tons of time and effort went in and I appreciate it! I'm so stoked to see my sis and her fam from Minnesota, my cousin's from Atlanta and distant relatives from Mexico City and of course all the local family here in OC.
More to come and of course pictures to go with it, but for now check out this old school pic of our fam. LOL love the "P" sweaters! Check me out at the bottom right. Oh make sure you to follow me on Instagram @thomaspellicer I'm pretty sure I will be taking some cool pics.
