Family

We've been rather busy...not necessarily working but busy...this last weekend we had a family reunion, Alan's aunt and uncle live in Long Beach...his uncles sister came out to visit, along with her two boys and their wives.plus two of his cousins....it was alot of fun..Uncle Tom had us in stitches over his stories of his boyish exploits on the farm in Iowa....fortunately, several people taped the stories as Uncle Tom is in his 80s as well as his sister who is a bit older..there are only 3 left of that generation....we went to SoupPlantation for "supper" and then to his cousins Debbies new house which is a darling cottage......this photo was taken in front of the house....
The weather was absolutely wonderful..warm and sunny as you can see......we had a job that morning so were in our work clothes....
His aunt Viola or Vi had never been to the Pacific ocean and had a wonderful time......

They gathered sand dollars to take to all the ggrandchildren back in Iowa.....that is Aunt Vi and Alan's uncle Tom who is a retired LA police officer.....what blest me immensely was the love that abounded amongst the family....as we departed, we held hands and prayed for each other.......
Alan and I determined to go back as often as we could to visit his aunt and uncle....we didn't know where they lived actually as they'd moved several times but now are living in Long Beach.......we are  hoping we can get our boys out to see them too..I know they would enjoy Jayden........
