Down in Louisana where the green grass grows....

We had our kin folk get-together. It began on Thursday and ended on Sunday. I almost backed out of going, but changed my mind. My Mother's side of the family is totally different than my Dad's side.

The reunion was held in Louisiana at a resort called Cypress Bend. There was a sign up table in the lobby for activities. There were competitions held in Golf, Fishing and Washers. There was also a fishing tournament held for children only. I thought my boys would win this....but...it was too dang hot for fishing!

Friday night was Karaoke in the bar. Saturday night was a band hired from Nashville called "The Heat". I video-taped them because they were so good, that I think they will be famous one day. There was a night of dancing in the ballroom. We spent most of out time out at the pool. The pool was half indoors and the other half was outside, you could swim under the glass wall to get to the other side. My boys loved it!

There were over 300 relatives there and we occupied the entire resort. This was the best one ever held. It was really nice to see my cousins, Uncles and Aunts. Since Grandma passed away we rarely get together as a whole.

Anyhow, it is nice to be back home!

Wow, what a family reunion. We only get 50 or 60 folks to ours. It sounded like a wonderful time.
Our pool is the same way. You know, indoor and outdoor. We store it in the garage in the winter and throw it out on the lawn in the summer when the Grandkids come for a visit. :)
