Weekend Report

On Saturday, it was our extended familyโ€™s annual summer gathering . . .

* We were so lucky to have nice weather โ€“ not too hot and no rain (even though the sun played peek-a-boo all day long).

* We enjoyed the most delicious food (including the delightful fruit salad you see above, which was made by one of my daughters).

* We talked a lot and laughed ’til we cried. (This is quite a witty bunch that includes several โ€œshould-have-beenโ€ comedians!)

* We celebrated a birthday (for Sir Beads)! He got all the candles out with one breath, so hopefully his wish will come true!

* We sorely missed the ones who could not make it that day. (As the kids grow into adults – jobs and marriages take them to other corners of the world and it gets harder and harder to have the entire clan in one place on the same day.)

* We cherished the chance to smooch and play with the newest member of our family, who is now 15 months old and absolutely thriving after a very rocky start in this life. (Did I mention he is the smartest most handsome baby – ever!?!) Lol

* We all agreed it was the best party! (Of course, we say that every year. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

The long ride home seemed very short. After such a wonderful day, there was lots to remember and chat about . . .

Weโ€™re already looking forward to next time.

Hope you have a chance to spend a fun summer day with people you love! ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. First, a very HaPpY BiRtHdaY to your Sir Beads!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Crystal, I wanted to reach right in and grab a big scoop of that delicious looking fruit salad the second I saw it! Your daughter cut the fruit into nice small pieces too, just the way I love it!

    The party sounded so wonderful. Now you have lots of new memories to cherish!

  2. Family get togethers are so great, aren’t they? Sounds like yours was a lot of fun.

    Happy Birthday Sir Beads! I hope your birthday wish comes true. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    psst…I’m craving fruit salad now. lol ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. You had all the ingredients for a good time:
    good company,
    good food
    good weather.

    Our family doesn’t even get together like this once a year. We only have occasions or events and they don’t occur every year. No one ever seems to want to take the time to have a get together anymore. Too sad.
    Glad yours was fun .
    xx, Carol

    O, fruit salad…yum!

  4. I have a feeling Kelly will be here soon, so I’ll include her in my heartfelt thanks to all of you Kids for visiting and leaving such sweet comments.

    You know I love the lot of ya!
    ๐Ÿ˜€ xoxo

  5. I was busy earlier this week, I have been planning a couple of fundraising events for the dog rescue group. I have a few weeks before schools starts again so I have also been cleaning closets, cabinets and drawers.

    I’m enjoying the olympics right now and I’m usually not a big sports fan.

    I’m so glad the baby is over his rough start and thriving. It must be a thrill to hold him and hear him laugh. I love little baby’s laughter. Your family reunion sounds like a dream come true. I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving, that is the day my whole family gets together. For some reason that day always flies and I have not found a way to make it go slower, but I cherish it each year.

    I also wanted to thank everyone for their well wishes on my induction into the National Honor Society, it means so much to me.

    Lately, I hope all your wishes and dreams come true this year Sir Beads. I’m sure your birthday was a blast. Here’s to many more.

  6. Hey Crystal!! You called that one. There’s Kelly!!

    Can you look into your crystal (heehee) ball and see what’s in store for me? Do you see me winning the Lotto.

  7. LOL, Donna! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Hmmm. let’s see……
    I see you making some more beautiful quilt projects this month.
    Ok, that’s not a prediction.
    It’s a fact!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    P.S. I do have lots of wonderful new stuff…. some is already in the shop… but lots more to add.
    My mission is to get it listed asap! Thank you for noticing! ๐Ÿ™‚
