Stone Family Reunion

We were excited to be able to attend the annual Stone Family Reunion this year. We look forward to the reunion and seeing EVERYONE each year. We went to Holliday on Friday and got to spend some time with Mummer. Crockett is always so happy to get to her house. Rich and Bella came late Friday night, so we didn't get to play with them until Saturday, but Crockett and Rich had a great time! Uncle Kyle told Crockett that there were ghosts in Mummer's closet, so Crockett and Rich hunted ghosts all afternoon... and this was after Uncle Kyle and Aunt Marla caught about 4 :) Uncle Kyle will be careful what he tells Crockett next time! Ha! Sara and I even got to sneak away for pedi's, a frappacino and a little shopping. It was WONDERFUL! The reunion was Saturday evening. We came loaded with cars and toys for the boys and other kids. Good thing! They had a great time, and there were only a few little tiffs. But for the most part, they did a great job playing nicely and sharing. I am always so amazed at everyone that comes to the reunion. The Stone family is SO big and I continue to learn names and faces and almost always meet someone I have never met before. This year was a little different, and sad... We all missed B.W. and his sweet smile. He was such a big part of the family. All the other brothers and sisters were there, although Holmes was not present for the picture I took. We got to see MiMi and Casey, Amie and their girls. That always makes our day! I feel very blessed to be a part of such a close-knit, big, loving and GROWING family!!! This is such a wonderful tradition and I am so proud to be raising our children to be a part of it!
