Pinwheels In Morning Sun
My aunt and uncle kind host a family reunion at the family farm every August.  My maternal grandparents had four children who each had two or three kids and now the next generation is filling in.  Getting everyone to the Island is a bit of a trick (ferries, hotels) but my Aunt and family make it easier by providing meals, spaces for tents and a full agenda of things to do.


2023 Congratulations BoardMy Aunt put up a sign saying congratulations to Chrissy and Andrew, Raelynn and Madison.  Chrissy and Andrew have announced their engagement!

One of the big wins for the kids was the slurpie machine.  You mix in fruit juice and machine turns it into slush.  Being a hot day the kids really enjoy the drinks.
