Yes,  I know today is Tuesday and Tuesday is almost history! I wanted to write a post about the family week end long before this, but time slipped away.

Friday - 

Mary Ellen invited the Witmer siblings, their spouses and the kids still living at home, to her home for dinner. We gathered around her table...

Almost all of us.......

Mary Ellen, the cook, ate at the counter!
We could have made room for her but she said she was fine back there =)

After dinner, we moved outdoors to her lovely backyard where we tried to take some pictures - 

How shall we stand?
Hurry up - my stomach muscles are getting tired!!
Gales of laughter =)
Our poor brother!!

Still working on the pose...

Not bad!
L - R - 
Betty, me, Jean, Mary Ellen, Dick
(Youngest - Oldest, of those able to attend)

We give it a try with the spouses - 

 Betty and Scott, Me and Dale, Mary Ellen,
Jean and Dick, Nancy and Dick
(oh no, what was bothering Jean???)


Cousins - 
our Ellen and Betty's kids, Isaiah and Merida

It was such a fun evening. How we missed Barb in ID and Rose in GA. They were with us in thought, for sure. All too soon it was time to head home because Saturday was full of planned activity. More on that tomorrow!
