My mother-in-law, Molly, has 3 sisters. I have been in the family 15 years and had never met 2 of those sisters! So it was a wonderful thing that we were able to get the sisters and their families all together in one place. We decided on Red River, NM.
It was a great choice. Molly found a huge house that was perfect for us. It was close enough to town that we could walk everywhere. And we got blessed with cool weather and rain!
It was so nice to get to meet the sisters. It was fun to watch them together. And of course we got to hear cousin stories like how Brandon used to shoot Sara with a BB gun. Then there is every one's favorite (well, everyone except for Roman) about the time Roman got hot sauce in his eyes.
We sang together and ate (so well!) together. It was a perfect weekend!
|The view was ok. ;)|
|Here are some of the new batch of cousins all cozied up.|

|Sweet babies in the rain.|
|These are Molly grandkids. Notice the babies in the back with their hands in the air? They were copying all of us who were trying to get Micah to look at the camera. Hee hee. They all look so sweet. What is wrong with this picture.|

It was really great to meet everyone and to get to know family. It is amazing how there is a connection there without even having to try. That is why I love family!
Now we have to figure out where we are going for the next one!!
