 Family Reunion

I typically like to write things that are useful and inspiring.  My life doesn’t fit into that category, but, I got some pics from my cousin and thought it would be fun to share! 

Not all of the family was there, but, those who were there enjoyed themselves!  My kids loved it!  Isn’t it good when one family member takes the time and puts forth the effort to do something that others may have thought of doing, but never gave it their full attention?  Thanks to Audrey, we were able to enjoy each other’s company and take some much needed time to visit with each other!  Thank you Audrey!!!  You are the Woman! 

Also, my uncle did a little geneology quiz for us, and I thought it would be inspiring to those of you out there who enjoy finding, sharing and encouraging others to learn more about their family!
