Family reunion August 23, 2010

This past weekend was the annual De Anda Family Reunion and it was held in one of my favorite parks, Ed R. Levin Park. Or Ed Levin as it’s known to locals. This event is an all day affair with all three meals being served. As you can imagine there was so much to see (and eat!) it was impossible to get all the photos I wanted, but I did manage to snap a few to share. The first one is of the banner, those are my great-grandparents in the corner, the reunion basically consists of my grandmother and her siblings and their families.

When you have that many people and every family brings food, you end with a lot of food. This is only the salads and some of morning food.

There were also several activities including the super popular horseshoe tournament! There was also face painting and entertainment for the kids.

Hope your weekend was as fam-fun as mine!

Happy Monday!

    I remember family reunions well. You are right – it is an all day event full of food, good conversation, and fun. When I was little, we used to have themed reunions where everyone would wear the same t-shirt. That was the worst. I believe the fashion police is still looking for me because of those massively reproduced matching t-shirts! It sounds like you had lots of fun. Happy Monday to you too!
