Our family has a reunion once every 5 years...the first was in 1986.
(Yes, Amy was a baby...Emily was not here yet)
Emily and I traveled to North Dakota to join my mom in attending the event.
We enjoyed visiting with cousins
and 2nd cousins, once removed.
My mom received a gift for being the oldest in attendance.
She is 90.
Sidney May received a gift for being the youngest in attendance.
She is 5 weeks old.
Sidney's daddy, Craig, let my mom hold his precious daughter...
That gift was priceless!
Such a sweet baby.
After a full day of visiting, good food, photo shoots, and games,
we brought mom back to her home...we settled into our hotel,
just in time for this...
This is the 2nd time this month that we have been in a hotel during a severe thunderstorm warning.
Both times we were lucky...this one just brought heavy rains, and the hail damage was to the south.
There are reports of water over the roads in places...hopefully, not on our road that leads to home!
