Reunion catch up

MM and I arrived at my cousin Will’s farm, White Oak Pastures, Saturday afternoon to check into one of their four cabins that are for rent.  Before going to the cabin, we got the grand tour of their many farm operations:  cattle, geese, chickens, hogs, vegetables…wow!  It is quite an operation, so go check it out.

Joined later by other cousins and one aunt, we enjoyed a fabulous dinner under the fairy lights at the open-air farm Dining Pavilion.  Even on a hot August night, the five Bad Ass Fans (yes, that is the name!) kept us cool.  Along with ice-cold beer and wine.

The family reunion luncheon feast was in full swing by noon on Sunday.  As predicted, there was food galore.  This, plus a dessert table:

There were close to 50 folks there, including my two sisters, Nan and Delle:

Cuzn Pat and hubby Fred arrived from just down the street in their respective wheels…beep, beep:

By 2 pm MM and I were northbound, heading back to the cool mountains…with cake, potato salad, and deviled eggs to share with Haley’s offer of a light supper.  Perfect!  Neither of us were very hungry anyway.  This was a great ending to a good weekend.  Plus being back in our own bed.

Life is good…especially when we can gather for a happy event.  This was NOT a circus at all…and we had several first timers there.  I’ve gotta get busy on my family tree stuff.

See y’all again next year, ya hear?!
