I had a busy Fourth of July, y'all!
Every July Fourth that falls around the weekend,
my dad's side of the family has a family reunion, with family that spans back three generations before me!
This was one of those years.
Here is the group picture of our immediate family, at least the ones that could make it.
Aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents!
Can you believe there are at least 20 still missing?!
Here is my pale lookin' self and the rest of my family.
This reunion was extra special because we were also celebrating my grandparent's
50th Wedding Anniversary!!
See those two large,black and white photos in the corners?
That bombshell and suave movie star are my grandparents.
They cut the cake and fed each other all over again.
"Give me a kiss," said Nana.
And he did.
I am so blessed by the example and marriage I have been lived through these
two amazing Christ servants.
Not too long ago, I heard Papa say over the phone to Nana when she
called with vehicle trouble and needed him to come get her...
"I'll always pick you up, babe."
He picked her up all those years ago,
and he ain't about to drop her now.
I had a great time making all the cakes and cupcakes for their celebration!
I'll give you more pictures and details, including Pinterest inspiration, in my next post!
You won't want to miss it!
