Cousins Reunion

My sisters and I had a very happy reunion with two of our cousins. We each have brothers but they were not able to make it. Our dad and their mother were sister and brother.

This is our cousin Jane who lives in California. She was visiting her Mom and sister in Ohio.

This is Jane's sister Mary and her husband Glenn. They all drove to Wisconsin to help celebrate an aunts 90th birthday.

We were able to arrange a noon lunch with them.

It had been a long time since any of us had seen them. I saw Jane 30 years ago in California and I think that was the last time any us of had seen each other. It was at least 45 years ago that I last saw Mary. As children we spent a lot of time together, much of it at our grandparents home in Milwaukee.

It was a beautiful day and we were able to enjoy lunch on the patio.

Clay and I took turns taking the pictures.

We had a lot of reminiscing and catching up to do and we talked non stop.
Clay took part of the group on a pontoon boat ride around the lake.
The rest of us sat in the Adirondack chairs watching them, enjoying the lake view and again talking non stop.

Before we knew it it was time for them to leave. We all were so happy we were able get together again and enjoy each others company.
We will not wait that long to see each other again!
