The first few weeks of August have been all about getting together with family. We had a a reunion at my house several weeks ago. I come from a rather large Italian family and we love a party!
For this Italian Family Reunion we decided to celebrate ‘zero’ birthdays. Partly because my mother will be 100 this year.
After a little searching I found 16 family members with ‘zero’ birthdays! We had someone for each decade except 90. It was GREAT!
Everyone brought a potluck dish so we had lots of yummy Italian dishes! And my husband manned his new BBQ kitchen.
Dessert was birthday cake with a star trophies for each celebrant.
Large family group pictures were taken. Cousins played darts and bocce, lots of eatting, drinking and talking and my 100 year old mother enjoyed visiting with everyone!
It was very special to have so many family members here and I want to thank everyone who made it.
A week later my husband’s family had a smaller but equally fun family reunion. Good food, wonderful people, and some good billiard games were enjoyed by all.
Cousins got together and shared stories from college, work and travel.
The grandparents were there, too!
With a little modern technology and Angela’s wonderful photo editing skills, we took a nice group photo.
We missed family that couldn’t make it.
It’s great being part of these wonderful families!
Let’s do this again soon!
