After driving across the country to attend a family reunion (the annual PCW), I had high hopes for a good time...and it didn't disappoint.
It was so fun to see our extended family, to play and to visit.
The day started with a horseshoe tournament, followed by swimming, and then lunch. (On a little side note, my favorite part of this horseshoe picture is Troy's dad there in the corner...it's good to know where Troy's fashion sense comes from.)
We then had some fun games for the kids and a little program.
This was the first reunion since Troy's grandma had passed away and it was nice to remember her and what a wonderful person that she was.
I have to say that we have developed some fun family traditions over the years, and I think that those traditions really add to our lives.
Last year, when Troy and I were in charge of the family reunion, we did a bunch of crazy activities, one of which was a potato race. You had to tie a pair of pantyhose around your waist that has a pototo in one leg. Then you swing your hips and hit another potoato on the ground.
I am happy to report that we did this again this year, and it was no less funny the second time around. Troy won this particular contest...his various skills never cease to amaze me.
