My grandparents(my moms parents) Bud and Margaret Sweeden.
Last weekend we went to Russelleville to a family reunion. My mom's parents grew up in Atkins and Russelleville and we have lots of family there. My Aunt Peggy (my mom's sister) and Uncle Gary and my cousins and their families all live there. Peggy is the reunion coordinator and always does a good job of getting everyone there. Layla and I rode down w/my cousin Jenny and her youngest daughter, Sydney. We had a nice lunch and visit at the reunion. Bingo was a big hit! I think EVERYONE won a prize....even my took her 4-EVER! These are my mom's sisters....My Aunt Mary June(left) and Aunt Peggy(right)....
Jenny and Sydney.....she is 2.5 and she is a MESS!!!
This little cutie is Jett, he is 2. He is my cousin Brad, and wife Katie, little boy. Katie didn't make it this year b/c she had little Beau 3 weeks ago.....and he is tiny.....5lbs!!Most of the cousins.....we are missing a few. All those cuties, (except Layla!) are about fun! Layla, Mary Margaret, Sydney, and Jett

Sydney "won" a pack of highbounce balls! They were zinging all over the place....Layla and Syd "won" some candy lipgloss....MMMMMMMgood!Check out my winning card....I got this cute little plate, it says "Harvest Time". I will put a pretty new ribbon on it and use it this fall.

After we had all the fun we could stand at the reunion, we went over to J.W. and Christa's house so the kids could play. They just finished a HUGE renovation on their house and it looks OH SO GOOD (sorry no pics, oops!) The kids had a ball......

J.W. had to put some hot water in the pool b/c the water was so cold!Rub-A-Dub-Dub how many cousins can you fit in a tub?! Layla had to wear a pair of swim trunks that used to be Bradley's (we handed them down to cousin Daniel, who handed them down to cousin Eli!!)This is Eli, he is J.W. and Christa's little boy. Talk about t-r-o-u-b-l-e! But he is cute, so we keep him!

Mary Margaret showing us how it's done.....right after I snapped this pic, she took a head dive over that bar....OH MY GOSH, all three of us dove for her....her mom grabbed her just in time to keep her from going head first off the deck(it's about 6feet off the ground)AHHHHH!

That was our fun time....hope everyone is enjoying the summer so far!

  1. I remember your grandparents!! They have not changed a bit!
    Looks like fun. Everytime I play bingo I get to excited about winning and yell "Bingo" prematurely....I'm an idiot!
