Family Reunion Part 1

Each and every summer we attend several family reunions. We try not to miss any since it is one of the few chances I have to catch up with Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles, cousins and 1st cousins once removed (my cousins' kids.) Most of these reunions last a few days and are filled with lots of good food, games, fun and great conversations. We returned from our first reunion last week and I thought I would post several of the images I took while there. There will be two posts for this reunion and probably the same drill for the others since I tend to take lots of images.

Today's images are from Day one! This first set is mostly of my kids since the first day was a short day--meaning I ran out of light to take many pictures outside.

I had to take these pictures. I have some similar ones from about 3 years ago when we held this family reunion at the same location. In some of the other ones, she was holding a cousin's hand. I couldn't duplicate that picture exactly because that particular cousin wasn't at this reunion.

Love this laughing one!!

Then I saw these really pretty flowers.

And then, I told them to pick some flowers. The flowers made for some great pictures, but I found out later we weren't supposed to pick them. Oh well, the flowers in the field will die, but I have these recorded forever!

Stay tuned for the next installment of family reunion photos.

Oh my gosh, Gayle... how do you do it? These are fabulous pictures! LOVE the shots of the girls with the flowers. Your angles and your color is phenominal. And your composition is so creative and artistic. I love the composition of the picture with the flowers held at waist level (not sure who is holding the flowers without a head for ID). LOVE all of these!

LOVE LOVE LOOOOVE!!! I'm gonna have to try and copy that one of Nicole (or both) you have!! Morgan loves seeing her "best friend Lauren" again in these photos. So much fun!

Oh I love the pictures!! Keep them coming. I can't wait to see part 2 and 3! ;) I've been curious to see what pictures you came up with!

Tara, I agree. That picture of Nicole looking down at the flowers is gorgeous. When I saw it I thought 'Wow! Tara needs that one!'

Looks like it was a nice reunion - we're sorry we missed it.
