Family Reunion

Well here I am, starting yet another project to add to my already endless list. lol

Well this past week was pretty exciting. We got to see all Ashby's again. Well the ones able to make it to the Reunion that is. It was a great time.

Our first night we spent having a wonderful BBQ and excellent conversation, not to mention a bit of Guitar Hero thrown in here and there.

The next day was full of adventure at Lagoon. We went on the Rattlesnake Rapids first, and then again. The little ones wanted to do it again, lol. It was fun, we were soaked. That was around 12:30 I think; I wasn't fully dry until 6pm... and then came the rain, so I was wet again... But all was well, we had the whole day before the rain came.

We did a few roller coaster rides, some of us faired on the rides better than others did... hehehe... we won't name names, will we GLEN.

We all met for dinner around 6pm at the pavilion that mom had reserved and more conversation ensued. It was right about the time that we were ready to head back out to catch some more rides that it b
egan to rain. Not the fun part of the day. We waited it out for a while, then left. Well, most of us left, there were a few that stayed and waited out the rain until the rides opened back up. The rest of us went back to Cindy's.

Now, it was also mom and dad's 44th anniversary, so a little impromptu celebration took place and a few hours of reminiscing and storytelling. It was a late night, but a great time.

Saturday, we took a little jaunt down Countryside Lane to see the old house the family used to live in. It was quite a bit different; the new owners have done a wonderful job with it.

Then it was over to Shawn and Kristy's. It was yet another great time with excellent food and lots of pictures being taken.

We left for home the next morning... …and here I am blogging about it.
