re*union /re'yunyen/ n 1:act of reuniting 2: a meeting of persons after a separation

I must admit by the end of the summer I am REUNIONED out! We just had our Big Tenney 11 Reunion this past weekend and we have our Big Slade Reunion this weekend and in 2 weeks we will have another Tenney Reunion for my siblings and their families. I do enjoy them and love seeing family that I haven't seen in a while but reunions just happen to wear me out. I am so exhausted by the time I get home and get the mess all cleaned up:)

This past weekend was a lot of work but a lot of fun. We had a great turn out and I was able to see cousins that I hadn't seen in a long time. We have miracles occur on a daily basis with a family of our size. It was a treat to see my Grandma Tenney. She is 95 years old and the most incredible woman I have ever known. She exhibits all the qualities of a virtuous woman. We joke that Grandma Tenney could commit murder and still get into the Celestial Kingdom:) I love you Grandma!!! I also was able to visit with my Aunt Kem who has battled breast cancer this past year. She looks beautiful and her faith and testimony is such a strength to me. My cousin Marnie and her husband Lorin were there. Lorin has been fighting Leukemia for the past 3 years. He is an amazing man and a hero to many and I admire their faith and courage. On Sunday we had a great meeting, the spirit was so strong and I had an overwhelming sense of gratitude for my amazing family.

Yes, you do have an AMAZ-ing family. Who inspire all of us!
So glad you are having a super-duper busy summer like me. Hey, it is either reunions or ballgames - take your pick. Or, both at the same time.
Love you!

We chose not to go to Brett's reunion this year and we've heard twice now that we really should have been there! We sure did enjoy our little family of 4 that weekend :).

You do have such an amazing family. I admire your Grandmother Tenney. She has such a story, one of forgiveness that I think can teach us all.

Sure love you guys. You inspire me...
