Family is pretty big now that I have started one. Family reunions are sweet as far as I can remember. All the kids ran crazy and gave parents heart attacks. Kind of weird that I haven’t been to one on my side of the family since I was little. My wife’s side hasn’t had one in more than 20-some years. It’s kind of weird hanging out with family you don’t know or know much about due to the years that have passed.
So this day was a little slow and weird, but everyone wore name tags. They had your name and how you fit into the family. This was sweet and made the day easier for sure. People change, families grow, some lose touch, but everyone is tied together with family in mind.
Some highs and lows of the weekend were:
Meeting all the grandparents and seeing old pics of everyone
Keep reading for a lot of pics…
Showing off our new boy Cooper
Eating good southern food
New Orleans festivals, Café Du monde coffee, hurricanes (the drink)
Jackson square where I married and my family started
Being in the background of a movie being filmed on Bourbon St.
Rain, hard rain sucks
Teething and tonsillitis
The inventor of the pavillion, Williams Pavillion (joke, check the pic)
