Well, look at me. Three weeks later, I’m finally putting up a post about the family reunion. Better late than never, I guess. In my defense, two of my sweet sister-in-laws, Susannah and Lydia, shared their pictures from the reunion with me – so there were LOTS of pictures to sort through. Plus, life has been going on.
So, the family reunion…
Last August, Mr H’s family began the yearly tradition (hopefully) of a family reunion. Fabulous idea since Mr. H’s other married siblings all live hours and states away, so we obviously don’t get to see them very often.
May was the chosen month, since John and Erica work at a camp, so obviously, summer was not a possibility for them. Unfortunately, Micah, Alisha and their girls were not able to come because of work obligations. But, we are hoping to see them in a couple of days!
Mr. H couldn’t get vacation for the reunion, but thankfully, his days off fell where we could be there for some of the time. We were only able to see John and Erica briefly on Saturday, after Lydia’s graduation, because work schedules conflicted, and they had to head back on Wednesday before Mr. H was off on Thursday.
The schedule we were a part of:
Thursday – hang around the house | Friday – Air Zoo | Saturday – hang around the house
Just perfect. Nothing crazy. We just like to be together.
Below are pictures of our Friday trip to the Air Zoo in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I think the word “zoo” may have thrown Norah off a bit, as I forgot to explain that it would be a building full of airplanes and not a zoo full of flying animals. 🙂 But it all worked out as Dad H generously covered full passes for all of us, so the kids could enjoy the kids’ rides and the adults could enjoy looking at the planes and riding the simulators. It was a fun day finished off with supper at Steak ‘n Shake.
Below are pictures from Thursday and Saturday when we just chillaxed together. The cousins had fun playing together, the adults chatted it up and Mom H never stopped cooking!
I am very blessed to be a part of this loving family. I’ve known them all for quite some time – since I was 15. So they know me pretty well – and they still let me marry their son – imagine that.
We’re already looking forward to next year’s reunion.
