Hilton Head 2013 - The Family Reunion

So you've probably been wondering where I've been....

At the beginning of last week my dad was admitted to the hospital with pneumonia. He was still bound and determined to go to the family reunion on the weekend. Prayers were sent and he was released on Wednesday.  They drove from Nashville to here that evening and we left on Thursday to go to my aunt's in Columbia. On Friday we visited my grandparent's grave and placed flowers. Afterwards we headed to Hilton Head!

We had SO MUCH FUN! I can't even describe how wonderful it was to see and spend time with everyone. My dad has 7 siblings and all but one attended the reunion. Then add in all my cousins and 2nd cousins and a couple of 3rd cousins! LOL It was a BLAST!!!!

On Saturday we had a cousins day at the beach! It was just so cool to see all lined up down the beach and hanging out with each other and watching our kids play in the sand and water together.

We had pool time, family meals, park day and family worship on Sunday.  I can't wait for next year!!!!

Here are some of my favorite pics from the weekend. (At the time of writing I didn't have permission to show everyone's face.)

  4. Thank you so much, Judy!!!
    He seems to be doing much better now that he is actually getting some rest. I was very worried that he would end up relapsing.

  5. Wonderful photos, thanks for sharing your good time! :)
