We recently made a trip to Fredricksburg for the annual Gregg Family Reunion. This is my sweet grandmother's family. My grandmother, Evelyn, was one of nine children - she was the youngest. Her maiden name was Gregg, which is what her and my Grandpa named my Dad. I love that! My grandmother and all of her siblings are no longer living, but this reunion is all of their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I found it interesting that three of her siblings never married or had children.
It was a one day get-together and aside from the cool wind, it was a wonderful and beautiful day. I think we had 43 people total, including the little ones. It was a nice turnout!

With so many pictures, I won't give captions for every picture.
Kind of a general overview - the day was spent inside and out at my Dad and Kristin's house in Fredericksburg. They purchased brisket, chicken, sausage and beans from a local BBQ restaurant and then they made a few side dishes and several yummy desserts. I made some seasoned ranch crackers for a snack and monster cookies to go with the desserts.
Other than eating lunch, the day was spent visiting, catching up and talking about "old times" - lots of stories and laughs. There were several photo albums and pictures looked at as well. The highlight for my Dad was playing some "42" - a longtime family favorite domino game. My Dad didn't get to play as many games as he wanted - just not enough time. It's always neat observing him and his cousins playing and having a great time...much like all of their parents did when they were kids. It was a beautiful day outside so there was lots of playtime as well.
There are three pregnant women in the family (no I am not one of them - ha!) so next year there will be three little ones to add to the family tree.
Some of the people there this year I hadn't seen in a long time so it was really nice to hug their necks and catch up on life. A really good time for the Gregg Family!
Until we meet again...
