This past Saturday we had a little family reunion for Mattie's mom's side of the family. Most of the family are the Mayes' except for Mattie and I's unit which would be the Howards. We had a really good time. The whole family was there except for Matt's sister and brother-in-law Rob and they were missed, but it was good to see everyone else there. All in all we had four generations: Grandma and Grandpa, the four kids (Ron, Gary, Deb, and John), all of their kids, the one birthed great-grandchild, and our little great-grandchild to be. It was definitely warm, but we had a shaded pavilion at Lake Murray (South Oklahoma) to try and stay fairly cool under.
Mattie and I really enjoyed teasing all of the Mayes girls, meeting the newer additions to the family in Valerie and Jamie, and spending time with people we love but may not get to see very often. Grandma and Grandpa seemed very happy with having all of their family surrounding them. Here are some pictures!
