Cowan family Reunion

First of all I failed to thank Jennifer, Matt, Emma and Logan for boarding all of us and then to top it off they hosted Marvin’s side family reunion. So a Great big Thank you !

There were a total of 28 people there and some were not able to make it. We had yummy food and Lorene's Rhubarb/Strawberry pies. It was a rather warm day so most of the time was spent in the house. The kids all played inside and went outside when the big water slide was set up.

The last pictures are of the water slides that all the kids and Matt enjoyed.  There also are some pictures of tug a war and some braving the hot weather sitting outside. 

This tug a war looks fair to me Jeremy on one side with Logan Papa and Emma on the other. 

What a great time we had that day.  We only had one day but we made the most of it.  We are so blessed to have so much family.

What a wonderful and full day all of you had! Everyone was full of fun and love! The water slide looked really "cool!" Thanks for sharing your terrific day!
Love to you all, Susan

I got your post. I find it to be irratating too when I go to post and realize something happened and it didn't post! I have done that on Nellie's or Bonnie's when I have in length answered their Thankful Thursday and Women's Day Journal. Wow! I can never remember all I had said! I wish there were a save button you could use as you write.

The only bird that can really make some noise is Max, my macaw. His squawking can really be loud. It doesn't happen often. But when it does, it's usually because he sees a turtle going along the fence or someone on the backroad. He can be a good "security alarm" at that point! The only time Jerry (African Gray) will squeal is if I have covered him up and he has no food (he has played in it knocking it all out by evening!) He likes to eat at twilight! In this manner, Cuddles is ideal for low volume levels! What's really enjoyable is to listen to them when they are interacting together with their talking and whistling! I go in to join and they act like I'm intruding and quickly hush! LOL! Most of the time if they do interact, it's "I want out!" (Max) "I want to go see gramma!" (Jerry) Cuddles just wants to play "Peek-a-boo!)
Love to you all, Susan
