a sea of red

family is super important...and we have a HUGE family!!!  every year we have the big old fam reunion...and since there are 5 fams represented {grandpa and his 4 sisters}, we all have a color we wear...and our color is red.
my dad is the oldest of 8...and well, all of them have a number in their fams now, so we're a huge group...a real sea of red.  at he reunion, there were 127...and that was missing a whole bunch!

and come reunion time, we bring our a-game...because there's some pretty fab stuff.  i mean, we are quite the people. not!!!  grandpa died 2 years ago and so grandma is the matriarch and she loves the reunion!  she's the cheerleader...

we have major competitions, with huge prizes.  this year...wait for it...watermelon seed spitting contest.  {i refused to participate...sorry about that}.  but in the spirit of fam, gab tutored brooke...

then brooke passed on the info to her sister and cousin...i mean, we NEED to win!!

no matter what, there's always time for hugs...

...and some comfort food from nana!
