Ohio Reunion!

The theme for this summer seemed to be family reunions. I went to three of them! But it was great to see all the family and meet members I've never met before! Unfortunately for the Haynes family reunion, Judy got really sick that day and wasn't able to attend. We were all disappointed.

The food was amazing - I don't think I've ever had a meal I didn't like that Aunt Katie has made!!!

One of my favorites from the day - I can never get a picture of Ski smiling!

We ended the evening with a huge bonfire!

Even though Judy couldn't make it to the family reunion we were still able to spend lots of time with her. Cadence was trying to do a dance while holding Chase.

What a great dad. This was his first time feeding Chase cereal!

GG and her Great Grandson Chase!

She's always doing some form of laundry - and it usually ends up being mine!!!!

I was soooo tired that day! My plan was to just close my eyes for a second...

How do you explain this???

We are hoping she doesn't get her dancing skills from her father!

It was a great time in Ohio! Saw lots of family, spent time with the GG's and Grandpa, and unfortunately I did lots of homework! By the time we got home, we needed another vacation!

Reogers City Reunion

This year Ski and I had to decide whether we were going to go to the Wisniewski Family Reunion or to the Festival in August because we couldn't do both. We decided to go to the Family Reunion! We haven't been to a reunion since the very first one.

The Wisniewski Family Tree

Bean Bag Tournament!

This year Pork, Kathy, Larry and Ann were in charge of putting on the show! They did a great job!

He took his job seriously...

The Ski's of North Carolina...

Below are just pictures from through out the day!

At the end of the day we had the Auction.

Before we started Aunt Vick read a really nice letter she had found from Busia.

The next generation of Wisniewski's!

Great job on the Reunion Pork, Kathy, Larry and Ann! It was a success and everyone had so much fun!

My six week vacation in Warren Mi!

This summer I spent 6 weeks in Warren, Mi with my mom! It was great to spend so much time with her. She was such a big help to me with Chase and Cadence! Plus she cooked dinner every night and I didn't have too!

My dad even drove in from Vegas to see me and the kids also! He stayed at my mom's house and I didn't have to go back and forth trying to see them both. I'm so lucky that they get along so well!

Now that my dad shaved off his mustache he looks so much like my Uncle Jay!

While Aunt Coleen was here we all went to Green Field Village. Here they all are in birth order...again. At my mothers insistence...again!

For the 4th of July, we had a BBQ at Aunt Jackie's new house. Her and Twin worked so hard that week to get the outside looking so nice.

Here we all are eating. It's just not a party if we don't see Megan's crack...

Megan and Twin

Aunt Janet and Aunt Dee Dee!

My mom knows I hate pig tails and braids because that is what she always did to me when I was little. The minute I left her alone with Cadence she found herself with the same fate!

My mom and dad were also able to see Chase get his first taste of cereal! The poor boy was going through so many bottles he needed something else to fill him up!

Not exactly sure what her problem was...

...but feeding Chase made it all better!

Whenever I go home I always try to go see as many people as I can but sometimes I just don't have enough time. I've kept in touch with Mr and Mrs Adair for many years. She was my cheerleading coach from 7th grade until 11th grade and Mr Adair pretty much had his hand into every sport at Fitz!

That night after I went to see Mr and Mrs Adair, I also got a chance to have a "Cheerleader reunion" of sorts! Here is Nancy, Bobbie, Theresa, Kasey and Me.

It was such a great vacation at home! Even though I was there for 6 weeks it seems like it went so fast!!! I hope to be able to do that again soon!
