Family Reunion in September

Sunday, September 25th we gathered for my husband's side of the family Reunion. His sister, Susie in pink and her husband Jerry made the long trip from Colorado. Susie is the oldest of 3. My husband is the baby of the family. I love this picture of Steph with her Aunt Susie. They have so much in common, it's unbelievable. The day before the reunion, we enjoyed hanging out and going to the European Market in Chesterton and then driving over to Valpo to walk downtown, in all the interesting shops and having lunch at a quaint spot. The one place that Susie and Steph shared a love for was the knitting shop. Susie is very talented at making jewelry and loves any stores that have beads or unusual jewelry.

Susie and Jerry are enjoying the lunch at the family reunion. We were able to rent a great little building at a local park that had a playground next to the building and a beautiful fishing pond across the road. Everyone commented at how perfect the spot was and private.
Four of my six grand kids enjoying the unique playground.
This was the fishing pier. We brought lots of fishing poles. Thank God the weather was beautiful and the rain held off. Gray had a blast fishing beside his grampa. I think all he caught was some seaweed, but he still had fun.

Noah had a good time too, as you can see by the smile on his face.

My nephew, Ben was our grill master. He grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, brats, chicken, pork chops and veggie burgers. It was all delicious.
So, we caught my son-in-law, Jeff and Cousin, Bob listening to the Bears Game.....while everyone was fishing or playing. It's ok though, we wanted everyone to be happy.
I love this picture of Uncle Jerry & Aunt Susie with the boys. Jerry loves to teach the boys golf techniques. They went golfing the day the girls and Mike hung out. Gray actually cries to go and play golf with his dad.
My husbands siblings. His brother, Bruce on left with his wife Kathy, Jerry, Susie, Mike and me. This reunion was such a success. We are so happy we were able to get as many family members together as we did. Bruce and Kathy were happy to have their 3 boys and their families and Mike and I were happy to have our 2 kids with their families. It was so nice to see everyone laugh and get re-acquainted. Susie and Jerry don't come often, but I look forward to another fun Reunion in a few years when they come back home. Gram would be so proud!

Having those fishing poles available was pure genius. That will make this reunion more memorable in the eyes of the children who were there and participated, as well as the adults who made it all possible.
