The July 4th Will White Reunion...

... was fun. Not as well attended as sometimes (55 were there), but still fun - and yummy. My father's father (my Granddaddy Andy) was the second child of Will White. This reunion is all of Will and Ann White's children and their children, and their children and their children, etc., etc. As I said in my previous post - but want to emphasize - Saturday was the 92nd annual reunion!!!

Here's my dad's family picture (taken, I believe, in the mid 1940's). Top, from left, his mother (my Grandmother Jennie - who was much prettier than this picture), Granddaddy Andy (known as Nuel to everyone else); bottom, Aunt Helen Ruth (she nixed the 'Ruth' part when she went to college, but she's always 'Helen Ruth' to us.), and my dear Daddy...

Helen Ruth's sons, Steve, Brian, David. Their little sister, Carol, and her family couldn't come- sigh. Neither could Brian's (sigh) --- 'course neither did mine (BIG SIGH)...

Steve's wife,Lori with their kids, Bethany and Brad...
It was a fun reunion.

On the way home, Mother and I went to a blueberry farm and got 2 gallons of blueberries. Then we stopped at a roadside stand and got some home grown peaches. Nothing like East Texas peaches. mm.

(P.S. Will and Laura both worked in the tea room Saturday, and Sam had some stuff to do because he worked Friday bringing Laura home from Waco - and he thought he might be going to a church conference in Michigan on Sunday, but that didn't pan out. I write all that to explain why they didn't go to the reunion! (I knew you were wondering- ha!))

Teri, I only took about a quart or two of blueberries. Mother was going to freeze some of them, and make lots of blueberry pies!! And she makes a yummy blueberry pie!!

That platter of fish made my mouth water, and I'm in complete agreement with little Lauren about that dessert table. Ummm mmmm.

Looks like a good time was had by all.
