The 2nd day of our re-union was hosted by Aunt Iris’ family, the McCleary’s. It had been a few years since we had all had the chance to visit – their family has grown so much, adding new daughter-in-laws and adding new babies which is always fun! I am sure Aunt Iris is watching and smiling! Her family is beautiful and a delight to be around!
The youngsters are visiting with Uncle Ron – I am sure he is only sharing words of wisdom!
I tried to get a photo of her not smiling – not going to happen – ALWAYS SMILING!
Aunt Carol is watching the kids in the field!
What do you mean I need to take a nap?
Aunt Carol and Jared. What a wonderful young man he has turned out to be!
As our hosts the McCleary’s had us singing for our dinner – the table that performed the best gets to line up first!
Uncle Kenny and Chad are serving up the beverages
Little toot is not quite sure about this singing for our dinner part!
After dinner entertainment included each branch of the family introducing their clan. The McCleary’s started us off, they sang a song about their families set to the Sound of Music!
Here they are all lined up!
Aunt Carol’s family was up next for introductions. Aunt Carol and Uncle Ron had to leave early so it was left to Darin and Lynn to tell us all about the Jones.
Trying to look official! (not too sure about that t-shirt!)
Sending it off to his point man…..
It took a flow chart to introduce the Jones!
My sweet brother-in-law started our branches introductions. He told stories of his dad while they were growing up – Linda and Corey followed up with more stories. I enjoyed it so much that I didn’t even take photos! We miss you GRANDPA KEN! You are remembered!
My beautiful niece and….
Our branch also sprouted a couple of new leaves this year. 2 little (grand nieces to me) joined our family in 2014! This one is learning what it means to be Green!
So many memories that just cannot be put into words or photos!
