This past week Jim and the boys came to spend some time and go to the State Fair. We had a great time and were sorry to see the week go by so quickly. We are looking forward to October when Jim and I will go and stay with the boys while Jim and Cathy go to the Fireman's Convention in Florida.
On Wednesday Jennifer and I went to Watertown went to lunch with my Mom , sisters and a group of my cousins. There were 17 in all and we had a great time catching up on news. The youngest to attend was 2 weeks old and my Mom is his great, great, great, great Aunt. That doesn't happen so much anymore with couples waiting until they're older to have their kids.

Sunday the annual Family Reunion was held at my parents home in Watertown, NY. The weather cooperated and we had sunny skies and a cool breeze. The food was plentiful with a lot of the old favorites as well as some new dishes to try. The desserts were over-flowing and the first to disappear were Grandma's homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies. The eldest person in attendance was my Dad who is 90 years old and the youngest was my cousin Kay's newest grandson, Liam, who is 8 weeks old.
