The girl cousins on my Dad’s side of the family have been hosting a family picnic during the summer. Attendance has been dwindling the past couple of years. We decided to try a get together in April this year…yesterday was the day. We planned a brunch for after church. Gluten Free egg bakes (we have a number of Celiac sufferers) sausages, ham, cinnamon rolls, caramel rolls, gluten free muffins and juice and coffee were on the menu.
The turn out was not great …there were 32 of us. We still had a good time. We gave away a quilt and table decorations. My parents won the quilt.

This was my contribution to the quilt. I cross stitched this a number of years ago. We have no more quilts in the works…although I think we have two quilts ready to go should a family member have a house fire. I have one upstairs and someone else has another one. I hope those quilts are never used.
This was a beautiful Non Stop Appleblossom Begonia that Aunt Lila won. I can appreciate these blooms, I used to grow them in the greenhouse and always marveled at their beautiful blooms. The Non Stop Series of Begonias is hard to beat.
Aunt Lila, Aunt Grace, Aunt Sharon, Aunt Anna and my parents are the remnant of the oldest generation and all were in attendance. Eighteen have gone on to heaven and six remain… we are thankful that the six were all well enough to join us.
It was another beautiful day! The snow is melting fast!
We might have a winner this week!
