weekend


Is anyone else bad at family reunions or is it just me? I always end up still just talking to my immediate family. Whoopsies.

We had corn on the cob though, so I didn't even care. Who doesn't love corn on the cob? YUM.


To answer your question, yes that is butter in there to dunk the cob. *clarification: not all of that is butter, some of it is hot water.*  We aren't total fatties around this joint. 

So yeah, had a family reunion this weekend. It was a blast. Ate yummy food (duh), hung out with family, and enjoyed the nice weather.  What more can you ask for? I suppose you could have asked me to visit more with my distant relatives, but that seems like a lot of work ;)

Here is take 2 featuring my sister. Much better.

Linking up with Sami for shenanigans! How were yours?

Cheers,

is it weird to say your brothers GF looks a lot like you? it's just true.

Lauren said...

DAMN that is a lot of butter. And I suck at family reunions, too.

Morgan said...

Family reunions are awkward no matter what. Is it bad that I don't even know some of the people there? Whoops!

Candace said...

Look at your family in all its blonde glory! I'm awkward too. People come up and say, "You're all grown up!" And I'm all, "Yes! And you are?"

Looks like you had a fun weekend. Lol That's a lot freaking butter!!!! We don't do family reunions bc my family lives in different parts of the state but it would be fun to do one.

Chandler said...

Hahaha. My family is so big I don't even know half the people at family reunions... which gets extra awkward when they know me and start asking about my life

family time is the best. i recently learned 2 weekends ago that the lady down my street is my 3rd cousin! so we headed over to her house and we chatted and got to know each other while our kids played together. it was awesome. she was also putting the family tree together so it was great to see how we were related!

Looks like a fun time!! My families are lame and don't do reunions so I've never had the experience...

Just a few things:
// corn on the cob is a must at any bbq, along with either blue moon or angry orchard.

// all that butter is legit making me sick. haha

// you and your brother's gf look like sisters. darn you skinny & pretty blondes! ;)

Such fun. I haven't been to a family reunion in probably ten plus years. I kind of miss them now!

Karoline said...

You and your mom are like twins!! Adorable! I've never been to a family reunion, but I'm sure I'd be just as awkward!!

JumpingJE said...

I'm awkward as F at fam reunions - looks like you at least enjoyed mama time!

Becky said...

Yeah, I suck at family reunions. I treat those people like they are strangers at the supermarket. Whoops.

i can't get over the butter in a jar for dipping corn. That's the most genius idea ever and i'm about to start employing it for other food items as well. i've never been to a family reunion but at least now I know what I'm in for if I ever get the chance to attend one!

Chasing Elephants said...

I need that corn! There is nothing better than grilled corn on the cobb! My teeth are chattering I want it so bad!

Brad Snook said...

To clarify on the butter comment for everyone, the jar is not 100% butter. It's about 90% water and 10% butter, with the butter floating on top the water.

Kay said...

Prettyyyy! Oh and also - corn on the cob, yes. Delicious.

WHY are you so freakin cute?! (and distant relatives are overrated.. I get all shy and weird. the immediates are where it's at)
