Just For Kids

Bonjour from Campagne Maison

Our mother's birthday is on July 2nd so our family celebrates her birthday and our annual Family Reunion at the same time. That just makes it easier for everyone to attend both functions. This year, seven of her nine children were here to help her celebrate her 87th birthday.

Folks congregated to the farm from Utah, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee. There was a 5 generation family portrait made this year which made the event even more special.

We try to gear a lot of fun events around the kids to keep them excited about attending the reunion. This year was a first for some of the cousins whose ages are in close proximity. If a picture is worth a thousand words then listen to this ....

How wonderful this reunion is. I adore these photos you have posted and I feel like I am there in the midst of toasting marsmellows, playing in the water and laughing with the kids. What a marvelous time you are having. Can't wait to see more photos. Sea Witch

How cute are those babies?...Jayci's picture is priceless! I love it. Boy Jacque you sure had a full house, but sounds like everyone had a great time...especially the kids. Can't wait to see more pics. I see you got your pictures on your computer again :-) Have a great day.

All those kids are so cute. They will have some great memories. I have great memories from my reunions as a kid. I liked to sit around and listen to the grown up talk. Is that weird or what? TL
