Family Reunion '11

This time, everyone in the family made it out to the beach reunion, even if only for a couple of days.  That means all 35 of us (plus Ellen!), and we have long outgrown a single beachhouse. 
So we had two, and they were oceanfront and one had a pool (and a hot tub, and a game room!).  It was my Grandpa's party and that's the way he wanted it and the rest of us managed to cope (somehow). 

Great Grandma in the sun

these two got along remarkably well together.  hardly any screaming and punching!  (well, relatively speaking...)

for the first half of the week, the water was perfect (and the jellyfish were pretty harmless)

 Grandma feeding the birds

there was a kid out there skimboarding in the moonlight

I seriously considered stowing this one away in my suitcase and taking her with me. 

in line for their turn!

And it wouldn't be a family reunion without dancing, games, good eats and hot tamale candies!

reunited with Great Uncle Jack!  so much love...

could my parents be any happier...?

speech, speech!  A big thank you to the (great) grandparents for having us all out to North Carolina!

I love the picture of your parents with a couch-full of grandchildren :)
