Family Gathering

My brother had the wisdom to invite the family over for a BBQ today. He supplied the meat, we all brought other things. He went beyond the immediate family and invited my dad's older Brother and his family. We were able to see, talk to, and in the case of the kids play with family that we haven't seen for a while. It has been almost 2 years since I have seen my uncle, aunt, and one cousin; and almost year since I have seen my other cousin and his wife and girls. It was so fun to get together again and watch the youngsters play. My sister's girls and my cousin's girls are almost the same age so they had a blast playing and all 4 of the youngster's enjoyed jumping all over their older cousins and getting them to carry them around instead of walking. I must say it was a nice relaxing afternoon and we should do this again. Of course I could invite everyone to my place, but then I would have to clean. Who wants to come and help me?

I am SO focused on that burger. Thanks for putting that one up! :-) And your mom's expression! Too funny.

Doesn't Brielle just look like she's up to no good?!
