Family Reunion

Yesterday, shortly after Jessica's Girl Scouts meeting, we drove down to Covington to my mother's cousin's house to attend the Perry-East-Taylor family reunion.

There were somewhere in the neighborhood of 80 people there, representing (as best I can tell) about four generations of various parts of my family. It was really good to be there with them all, even if I didn't get to talk to everyone. Some of them I haven't seen in three or four decades; some of them I'd never even met (and in some cases still haven't).

Here are some pictures of the goings-on at the reunion:

Jessica Becomes a Brownie

This morning, Jessica's Girl Scouts troop had their bridging ceremony to mark the girls' transition from Daisies to Brownies. It was a little hard for Jessica--she had to stand up at the front with the other girls, which makes her very anxious--but she survived it, and now she's a Brownie!

Elyse Before Gabe's Party

Today Elyse went to a birthday party for one her St. Matthew's preschool classmates, Gabe. She wanted to get dressed up for the party, and then she wanted me to take pictures of her. I was, of course, happy to oblige.
