Although I miss when us kids use to rule our family get togethers, seeing the new generation of our family playing around was so freaking amazing. I think back to all the good times we had playing around while our parents played Mah Jong for hours on end, in my mind it seemed not long ago. Fast forward 20-30 years and holy crap where did all the time go?
As we all gathered at the main house the first night, I truly was getting so excited to see everyone, some I haven't seen in a few years, a few I saw not too long ago, but needless to say the anticipation was awesome! I really wish I was a good writer because I would break this whole weekend down and make it sound rad, but since I take pictures the best I can do is tell you with my camera. I took a few candid shots, BUT now I wish I took a ton more, the individual family shots I really enjoyed, that was fun!
I want to say THANK YOU to everyone that made this event happen! I know there were a lot of contributors, but special thanks to Tita Metty for finding the two houses we used, my cousin Patti for orchestrating the tasks, my cousin Rochelle for coordinating the weekend and designing our shirts with the help of Pauline as well. To all our cooks, thank you for feeding ALL of us! And to wrap things up I just want to say I LOVE my family and I look forward to our next reunion in 2015!
So here are a few (ok a lot) of images from our reunion, hope you enjoy!
