[F]oto Friday

I promised vacation photos. And since we spent the larger amount of time in Florida with extended family, I thought I could introduce you. With photos. So, it's a twofer today.

First, the family's patriarch. He's powerful and strong, and oh, how we love and revere him.



Here's Grandma. As always, busy as a hungry bird, making sure everyone is happy... and that they clean up after themselves.




Unfortunately, Uncle Ed couldn't make it to the reunion. Though he did send a picture to show us what it's like behind bars. He won't make a get-together for another 3 to 5.


A couple of the aunts [zebras... shh... it's a family secret] shied away, pretty much sticking to themselves during festivities. I think they get tired of the whispers.




You should have seen how many cousins flocked to the picnic!


And, last but not least... We're so bad about getting photos of the four of us. Even in this shot, I'm behind the camera. Misterwrites and the girls decided to go swimming, and I snagged a picture. Aren't they just stinkin' cute? (The extra little one you see is a cousin who tagged along on many of our adventures.)


And so that's it! Hope you enjoyed the look at our vacation. ;) We had an absolute blast.

Happy Weekend!

Oh, I see somebody from Romania left a message on your blog. What does your blog have to do with Basarabia's freedom?

And what a wild family you have! I could read this blog post of yours could make a good children's book. I know my daughter would love it.

Lovin' those family photos. So may I ask what Uncle Ed did? Illegal gambling at the track? ;-)

Does your family know about this? If I likened any member of family to a whale, I think I'd be in BIG trouble. ;-)

Glad you had a great vacation and got all your ducks in a row. Ahhh...that was pathetic, but I couldn't help myself.
