Reunion Teaser

Well, another D Descendants reunion has come and gone and, as usual, was a great success. Even though the skies opened up and poured for about two hours on Saturday afternoon, we had a wonderful time.  I'm waiting for everyone to share their photos before finishing my recap post, but I have a few shots to share that will give you a glimpse of the weekend.

Milo met his new cousin, Oliver (Havaton breed) at the reunion. Oliver (short for Oliver Bacon) and Milo got along famously and spent every possible moment running, rolling, and chasing together. Sometimes, it got a little aggressive, but today they shared a treat. I say shared lightly, because although Michelle managed to capture this adorable gem of a photo, they mostly took it gently away from each other, back and forth, for about 30 minutes.  It was incredibly cute. The best part of their relationship is that they wore each other out each day; that, and now Michelle and I have another reason to get together.

As I mentioned, on Saturday, just as the family games were getting underway....

It quite suddenly began to pour, and we all ran for cover. (That's all except Kyle and three other cousins who decided to make the best of it.) 

There were at least 80 people in the audience at the talent show Saturday night, and we don't have a final count yet, but I'm pretty certain we had a record turnout this year for this, our 13th reunion (26 years). My heart is full; for so many reasons, this reunion was special, and I look forward to sharing some of those reasons in future posts. For now, though, I just hope you had a great weekend, too. 

Happy Monday! :)
