Reunions

Wilson Family Reunion 2014

I can't even tell you what a great weekend it was.

But I will tell you this: family is so important!

This weekend was the first time in 9 years that my dad and his 4 siblings had all been together, and we didn't waste that opportunity. Sunday afternoon we all gathered at my Aunt and Uncle's and just spent time together (mainly eating, because as a family unit, we are pretty darned good in the kitchen), and it was just all so fantastic.

There was even entertainment!
Earl and his brother Earl, the long lost Wilson brothers ;)

It made my heart so happy to see my Nanna surrounded by all five of her children, ten of her grandkids, twelve great-grandkids, and one great-great grandchild. There were many happy tears :)

And then yesterday my Grandma and Granddad (my Mum's parents), arrived from New Zealand for the first time in four years! Reunions everywhere!

Since it was also my dad's birthday, we hijacked their drive home from the airport with a surprise visit at Shari's restaurant to give him some birthday love and my grandparents some, "we missed you!" love :)

And to top it off, today one of my oldest and closest girlfriends from high school is visiting me from Arkansas, along with her husband and two kids, and I am giddy-excited. We haven't seen each other in probably almost ten years!

Reunions are so my favorite :)
