Yesterday we went to a gathering of my sisters side of the family. Mostly her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
It was a chance for cousins from different sides of the family to get to know each other.
The party was at my great niece Alex and her husband, Mike’s, place in Petaluma. They live out of town on some acreage.
We arrived around 12:00. My sister Mary and brother-in-law Tom, my niece Connie and her husband Bruce were there already; others arrived soon after we did.
Eventually we had a large gathering of cousins, second cousins, aunts, uncles, great aunts and uncles, parents, grandparents and several babies.
Okay, here are some random pictures taken at the party.

Here is Madison Rose and her mom Sarah.
There were also some older kids,
And plenty of old farts,
And of course, pets.
We had a fine time visiting with relatives we don’t often see.
Thanks Alex and Mike for hosting the party and thanks Mary for getting it organized.
It was a fun day.
