Family Festivities

Yesterday was a day for family.
For gathering.
For celebration.

Kids (and friends)

Brothers and nephews
Step-mom and sisters-in-law

Daughter-in-law getting kisses

Father and grandson
(or for my father, his 6th great-grandchild)

for feasting

and exploring the world
in a place where everyone
is safe and loved.

And when the gathering ended,
I headed for home,
but took a little detour.

That pesky camera!
It always leads me astray.
But more about that later.

You have a great looking family and your father looks to be happy living his fullest. I envy you that big dinner. But, it does remind me of Thanksgiving when our family would always get together. Good night~
