Family Reunion

We had our family reunion Saturday! Lots of family, lots of fun, lots of food!

It was at Cedar Lakes. The West Virginia Writer's Conference was also at Cedar Lakes this weekend. I've been busy, that's why it's been so long since I posted. If you want to read about the Writer's Conference go here to my writer's blog.

Our youngest member paid us a visit at the Reunion. I introduce to you Lilyana Grace, my sister's grgrandbaby.

And our oldest family member was my dad. He will be 85 in August.

We also had a visit from the newlyweds! Last year my son Charley proposed to Jennifer at our family reunion. This year they came as man and wife.

Here is Aunt Irma, my mom's sister. She was the 9th and next to last child of my grandma and grandpa McMillion.

The kids had fun blowing bubbles.

We really had a wonderful time this year. And, after it was all over, I came home and washed my tablecloths that I put on all the picnic tables. Here's a few of them hanging out to dry.

and, a few more.

This is one reason I collect vintage tablecloths. I use them every year at our family reunion. I love the beautiful colors, pictures and patterns of the old cloths. This was only a few of the ones I took. Every table under the shelter was covered with one.

Hope you enjoyed reading about my family reunion. We'll do it again next year.


  1. Hello Lilyana Grace! You're such a cutey! Charley and Jennifer look good too. Please tell Jennifer I love her dress.

    Your Dad looks fantastic for his age. You go Dad! :) Your Aunt Irma looks like a sweet lady too and I like her name alot.

    Oh my! Just kill me with all the wonderful tablecloths you have. They are just lovely! Thanks for hanging them on the lines outside to dry as they take me back to when people hung their clothes to dry. It does my heart good to see it.

    Glad you had so much fun at the reunion and hope you have many more. xxoo

  2. I love family reunions and I REALLY love those tableclothes! I recognize a few that my mother used to have. Where do you find them all?

  9. Sounds like you had a great time.
    My family hasn't had a family reunion in over 20 years. No one seems to be interested since my Grandparents passed.
    You really have a lot of vintage table cloths. They are beautiful hanging out to dry.

  10. Family reunions are good....if only more family would come.....but those who did come had a good time. I love seeing the ones who we don't get to see often. I get sad sometimes when I think of the ones who have passed on, especially Mom. I'm glad you got a good pic of little Lily. Sometimes it is hard to believe that I'm really a great-grandma. Thanks for always putting our reunion together...hope you don't give it up.
