Higgins Family Reunion

Families are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts.

Last weekend we had the Higgins Family Reunion at my parent's house. It was a wonderful day filled with lots of laughs and lots of relatives, some that I met for the very first time.

My Mother's Mother - Carol Higgins LaFevers and her husband Buzz and her three daughters, Gayla McKenzie Arnold & husband Tommy, Karen McKenzie Cook & husband Kelly, and Johnna McKenzie Ervin & husband Mike, and their children, Amy, Seth (with daughter Emma), & Katie, Kelli Ann (with husband Jeb & son Reid), & Kassidy, Mica, Jon-Michael, Trey, & Grayson

Granny Carol and her brother and sisters: Pat, Harold, Claudine, Willa, & Carol

Uncle Buddy's Gang

Aunt Willa's Group

Aunt Claudine's Bunch

A Few of Aunt Pat's Clan

Uncle Buddy...the leader of the group

Reid was most interested in eating ice...

And throwing ice!


Obviously my Aunt Johnna said something funny...not unusual for her.

Pretty Mica

Not happy about taking family pictures Grayson?

Grannny was having such a great day with all her family!

Jon was good at keeping Reid entertained!

The reunion was a huge success with over 80 relatives! We ate Bar-B-Que, went swimming, and told stories about old times. What a great way to start off the summer spending time with those we love the most. Hopefully next year we will be able to have another Higgins Family Reunion!
