Before I get into the real reason for this blog, I thought it might be a good idea to show the clan. This was taken in July at our Smith Family Reunion held once every two-three years. This is only a fraction of the family, there were so many who couldn't attend. But the ones who did had such a good time and the weather was great. And the reunion this time was held in honor of our oldest sister, Mary, 5th from the right in the middle row. She turned 83 this past summer! She had a great time and was so pleased to be able to attend, to visit, see the horses and even took a ride on the ATV with her son.
Family is very important to me and we always enjoy each other's company, with laughs, stories of the past and sharing of dreams and plans for the future. The next reunion will be held in a couple years, probably in S. California and the hosts will be nieces and nephews. Hopefully there will be more in attendance and the family memories will continue to be made. Until next time, keep smiling.
