Family Reunion 2010

We have just returned from a great weekend in Pigeon Forge! We so enjoyed spending time with our family. It's good to have a weekend like this so that the extended family doesn't feel so extended anymore! This reunion involved around seventy attenders, all there because Grandma and Grandpa Anderson started it all!!

Even though Grandma has been gone for ten years now, she is remembered at every gathering and this was no exception. I very much enjoyed hearing my Grandpa read his spiritual journey to us and to hear again the story of how he came to fall in love with my grandmother and then, a few years later, with the Lord. Certainly a special time!

Of course, the kids enjoyed swimming, playing with cousins, eating, playing with cousins, dancing, playing with... you get the idea!

It was a great weekend and, as always, I am sooo sleepy tonight. But I still have that smile on my heart that makes me look forward to next year!

Enjoy the pictures in this post as well as the two posts following.
