I had the opportunity a few weeks ago to attend a family reunion. It was a reunion for my Mom’s side of the family. I have to say I am a blessed man with an amazing family. I have a fantastic Mom and Dad, a great brother and sister in law, beautiful wife and amazing sons. I’m very lucky!! What was fun about the reunion was to reconnect with my extended family. I grew up 3 hours away from both my Mom and Dads families. I didn’t grow up close to my extended family and as an adult I haven’t been close so the reunion had a special meaning to me. I was able to talk and share with folks who I’ve only know from a distance and discover that…well…I’ve got a great family. I hope in the years to come I can stay better connected and to help my boys be more connected with their extended family than I’ve been. I guess I’m just feeling nostolgic today. Well, here are some pics for your viewing pleasure.
