We spent the weekend in Greentown, Pennsylvania at our family reunion! My grandmother, Vivian, my dad’s mother, was one of 6 siblings. My grandmother passed away a few years ago, and now only one of the siblings is still with us, Aunt Byrnece. Forty of us gathered at Aunt Carol’s house for our first official family reunion.
My parents drove up to Cville on Thursday and on Friday morning mom, dad, Mazen and I made the day-long drive to Greentown. We rented a lake house on Lake Wallenpaupack along with my Aunt Pat and cousin Crystal.
Friday night we met the relatives who had arrived early at Carol’s. We ate pizza, salad and cocktails in perfect weather among the rolling Pennsylvania countryside hills.
Saturday I went for a run for an unknown amount of time and unknown distance along the lake. We ate breakfast and relaxed before packing up to head back to Carol’s for the day.
We had a huge picnic lunch with hamburgers and a million side dishes
Our group was in charge of bringing a couple of big veggie platters that I assembled in the morning – refreshing!
Plus a beer! The white circle is a cheeseburger : )
Best dessert EVAAAH! Burnt marshmallow + melty chocolate + graham crackers + long stick + fire pit.
We played and played and talked all afternoon. There were 2 other 2-year-olds for Mazen to chase around.
Later that evening we said farewell and went back to our house for bed. For a light supper we had leftover veggies…
And ice cream!
With lots of stories for dessert : )
