My Grandpa has 4 kids, 9 grandchildren, and 16 great grandchildren (1 passed away).
Here are a all the grandchildren and great grandchildren that were at my grandpa's party. I'm on the left with the blue shirt, 1st in the middle row. I'm the one with allergy eyes. My Aunt has a cat. My Grandpa is in the middle. My kids are in the first row on both sides.
Here's my Mom (first in the white shirt), my Aunts, and Grandpa.
Do you still have a grandparent that is alive?
This weekend we had a family reunion on that side. It was at a state park. People ate together, and went to do their own thing after that.
My parents took Mica out the day before for his pre-birthday lunch and shopping event. The boy ate WAY TOO much! I didn't realize that he ate so much, and we had a fairly big dinner. The day of the reunion Mica was as full as a tick. I thought he was going to pop. He did. We were hiking before the reunion. All the sudden behind me Mica popped all over the sidewalk. We didn't feed him anything at the reunion. We refused to take the boys to the pool area. I was afraid he might pop in there, and they'd have to shut it down for everyone.
I knew Mica wasn't sick. He was acting fine all afternoon. Instead of swimming the kids played in an indoor play area that was gigantic, we climbed a tower, and visited a shrine that was in the area. I wanted to go horse back riding so bad, but they had that shut down due to the high heat. I don't know how that works. Something tells me back in the day that horses were rode no matter what the temperature was like. It was a pretty full day. We were all beat due to the heat, hiking, and tower climbing.
