Henebry Family Reunion

This past weekend the entirety of Dad's side of the family gathered at our house for a family reunion: the first one since 1999. A bunch of Gus's college friends also came. We had fun doing a zillion different activities, including taking young cousins to the Children's Museum, going swimming, doing crafts, taking pictures, and of course eating and drinking! Uncle Dave even brought family T-shirts for everyone.

It was amazing getting to see everyone after so long. I hadn't even met our littlest cousin, Aparcio, and he is five years old! He and his older sister Marisol are by far the two youngest of the family. Claudia, Isabel, Tessie, and I enjoyed getting to know them and playing with them.

On their last night we took them to the playground a few blocks away. Photo from Claudia.

It was also great to see Aunt Mary, whom I hadn't seen since I was seven, and cousins John Michael and Jacob. Mary and Jacob and his girlfriend came all the way from Alaska to spend time with us!
I'm not used to seeing relatives, especially all at once, since we all live so far apart. The time we spent together was exhausting and a little overwhelming, but a lot of fun anyway. It was a great summer weekend.

everyone went out for lunch on Saturday

Claudia, Othman, and I were artistic at the Children's Museum!

Our time at the Children's Museum seemed to be dinosaur-themed...

A Baby Grand Piano now residing in our house! We bought it used from someone we know from church. It is the smallest baby grand you can have, but it makes an enormous difference when compared to an upright! The action is about 5000% better and the sound is nice and warm. It is taking a bit of getting used to, but after we tune it things will be considerably better. I'm so happy!

Thanks Mom and Dad!

Isn't it pretty?
