I hosted our annual family reunion this past weekend, I thank God that he turned the weather completely around, otherwise this may have been a disaster. Last week the weather was over 100 degrees with the heat and humidity, but by Saturday morning it was comfortable in the 8o's. Praise God!
My Dad got to share the family tree charts with relatives, many of whom I just met for the first time and we live in the same county!
We got to enjoy finger food, including 2 bushels of Maryland crabs...($125 per bushel)! It was a finger-licking good time.
We had church at the park on Saturday.
A special thanks to D&K enterprises for printing the shirts overnight!
The teenagers turned out in a large number this year and they participated in the games. The little kids enjoyed the pinata and a ghetto game of kickball.
Oh and the food...no one can say they went away hungry.
Special thanks to family friend and newest adopted Tarpley family member Lisa Renee Young for all of her invaluable assistance both Friday night and Sunday!
This marked ten years of Nicole and I doing the family reunions and I'm glad to say I'm retired...it was a LOT of work, but it was well worth having my cousins all together especially the ones who have lost their parents, the actual links to the Tarpley family reunions...that was my goal to keep them connected and all the anxiety I endured was worth it.
