And of course, the little man of the hour. His Mom handed him to me as soon as I got there and left him with me for quite awhile. I truly didn't mind since I could have held him even longer.
I can't forget Bain - he just gets cuter every day. It makes me sad I have never seen him. Hoping the next time the family is here she will be able to bring him over for a visit.
I ran across this picture of Moni and Tadashi - I love it. We were so happy to see him really enjoying himself that long weekend. It was so good seeing all of them at the first Belma's Pearls Family Reunion a little over a week ago.
I really liked this one of Stephanie, Douglas and Ted. Stephanie rented the beautiful club house that is in the Park where she lives. Several of the kids played tennis and of course Steph beat them.
Of course I love this one of Moni (my first girl) and Kelly. I'm thirteen years older than Moni and she is 12 years older than Kelly. I get to keep up with Moni on Facebook as well as her handsome brother Sid. Her sweetie - Tom - came by for a nice visit. We enjoyed him very much.
Someone took quite a few of us all sitting together and this was the first one taken. I decided since we were all already smiling so big, it should be the one I showed - the natural one.
I'm not sure what Sid is telling me here but it must have been a good one. And yes Moni - before you say it, I definitely see Mama here. Uh Oh.
Here is Faye calling everyone to eat. Not really, she was talking to everyone and I think someone asked her a question.
Of course Kelly is always aware of the more important needs of the moment and rose to the occasion with a much needed fan of sorts. Faye only got a little emotional when talking about Barbara but for the most part she did really well. She then asked about the Belma's Pearls poem so I pulled it up on my iPad (it is on my blog) and I read it.
This is one of many that were taken. It isn't that great of me but I think it is the best of everyone else. Overall - we decided it was a big success and we are planning to do it on the same weekend every year. I can't tell you how happy we were to see Tadashi, Paul, Lori and Brandon. The trip was totally exhausting but they got there and we enjoyed them.
