Saturday Shorts - Family Reunion



Being out of town last week for a Family Reunion kind of set my schedule off but it doesn't take much to do that these days with my ADD - don't deny it, you have some too, everyone has a little some just more than others..




...so here's my Grandmother - the youngest of 12 children herself at 90 years young with her six children of her own - my mom is to the left of her in black.



There are 10 grandchildren, only 5 of which were there and 14 great-grandchildren here are half of them pictured
(can you even imagine great-grandchildren?)



The only picture I regret not taking which I usually take whenever we go up to visit is a four generation picture with Grandma Iowa , My Mom, myself and my daughter.  My grandmother did tell me that she hesitates to tell me that she thinks her health is improving.  She has had some medical issues the last couple of years and drove her car up until last summer - she's 90 years old for cry eye! She has been ready to go for awhile and I am okay with that until it happens so it will be the rest of us that have to get used to the idea...


I'm still trying to wrap my head around great-grandchildren..


Have a great weekend and wear those shorts!

Great pics. And 90. Wow! I always loved family reunions as a kid (I was kind of a weird child) and I wish we had them more routinely these days. I'm glad you got to go and get some great pictures to cherish for years to come.

Your Grandmother looks amazing for 90! We have a very small family so you would think family reunions would be easy. Not. We do our best to get together every year at Thanksgiving...great grandchildren included!

So cute! Gret grandchildren is bizarre. Hubby and I wanted toprovide the first grandchildren of the family, and thenone his cousins had to go have an "illegitmate" baby. Bummer.
