My mother had 8 sisters & 3 brothers and as time goes on, the Morgan family just keeps growing & growing! On Friday night, there is always a big bonfire and we cook hot dogs, roast corn on the cob and there always homemade chili. Home canned relishes are always available for the hot dogs and this year I noticed a few desserts hiding in the pavilion!
I didn't make it down for the Saturday festivities (canning & preparation for my Indiana trip needed done) but they always make an AWESOME breakfast then in the evening there's a grilled Steak or Chicken dinner. This year they had a square-dance caller coming in and I'm sure I'll hear all the stories today! (hopefully someone got pictures!!)

Today is the big FAMILY REUNION and I'm headed down there very shortly. It's an hour & 1/2 drive but that's okay ... it's worth it and besides, my family would never forgive me if I didn't show up!! OH, did I tell you this all takes place on my cousin Paul's 100 acre farm?? Out in the middle of nowhere ... where you can hoop & holler all you won't and no one cares!! My cousin, Cobby (real name Jim) always rents fun stuff to keep the kids busy ... dunking tank, water slide, and a few other things for the little kids.
Well, I just took the last jars of picalilli out of the canner so I guess I'd better get on the road! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!!
Hugs to ya!
