Long weekends are the governments' gift to mankind. I really appreciate them, especially August Long, as that is always right near my birthday, so I am pretty much guaranteed a good time.
This long weekend was no exception to the norm. Family reunion time! While it wasn't my side of the family getting together (we had our get together this summer too), it was Adam's side, which means a lot more family than I've got. We're talking triple digits, where I am barely hitting double digits when it comes to our family census. Which means crazier and louder and lots to do!
We were a little worried about the motor home getting us there, but Adam tuned her up really good, and we made it there without a problem. I grew up camping in tents, which I can appreciate then, but now that I've grown accustomed to RV camping, I can also say I really appreciate that. It is so nice to have everything you need right there, from pots and a stove to your rain gear and a roof, if you happen to need it! We got lucky and only had a few raindrops, even though the weather was calling for thunder showers.
It was the water balloons you had to watch out for!
I know that I've said this before, but I really love family. Coming from such a small family myself into this extra large family, I have to say, it's quadrupling the fun! From a horse shoe tournament, which my sister-in-law totally won, and a thrilling round of bean bag tossing, which I happened to do oddly well at and won, to pot luck dinners and pancake breakfasts. Not to mention the talented entertainment. Wow. This family's got talent!
Look out reality TV for this real life episode!
They even had tapes of previous generations rocking out. Hopefully no tapes of this year though, because the last night I know I was definitely belting out the tunes.
No need to hear that in the years to come! Eeek!
Although we were singing some pretty good tunes...
The hall where the reunion was held was pretty awesome, too. The main room was called:
The Antler Room.
With all the deer running around the area, you can see why! The cousins at one point were on a search for deer, only for the deer to come right up to us.
Get the look!
