The much awaited event that happens annually is the Was' fam reunion. Four of the five of us kids and our parents live locally, so we eagerly await the visit of our other brother, Ben, his wife Tasha, and their three kids, who come from the other side of the Rockies. We are always overjoyed to be graced with their presence each summer, and we fill up every spare moment of the week with something or other.
Tennis-playing was big, especially now that Ben has practically gone pro! Getting together to eat and talk is a standard.
We always celebrate the kids who have summer birthdays.
Here are Sophie, Maddie and Rachel enjoying dinner. We go to a different house or location for dinner every night.
Kids outnumber adults now, so they are required to form lines, lest we get overwhelmed.
The adults-only dinner at Rotella's was nice, and it only took 2 babysitters for all the kids!
Next year we plan to start having a Girl's Night Out as well on one of the nights. Not sure why we didn't think of that this year!
Traditions and belt buckles.
