Every couple of years, Ryan's family always gets together and has a Huge family reunion. First is the Vernon Reunion (Ryan's Grandma Reed's side) and second is the Reed Reunion(Ryan's Grandpa Reed's side) The shots above are just a few from the Vernon side and also Annalyse and her cousin Regan meeting for the first time. The Vernon reunion was held at the Farm and the Reed Reunion was held at Turkey Run State Park here in Indiana. We had so much fun...and too far too many photos to put here! So if you're family and looking at the photos please don't be offended if you aren't here. We really do love you! Since having these family reunions, it makes me really want to have a family reunion with my own family!
The photos here are from the Reed Reunion at Turkey Run State Park in Indiana. There are so many wonderful photos. Annalyse did a lot of "firsts" here. She went on her first Canoe ride and her first hike. Two years ago was the first Reed Ranch Reunion and I was so very pregnant so this is the first time that she met most of her extended family. We just loved everything we did while we were there...even though it was way hot!
I'm sure if Ryan were writing this he'd tell you amazing stories about the two reunions and how wonderful each of them were...and I promise there really are great stories and the reunions were great...I just have a horrible memory and can't remember everything. Ryan and I alone took close to 100 photos over the course of the two reunions and visiting family who had driven in and there is absolutely NO WAY of posting them all on here. Ryan is more of a documentary type photographer and I'm more of a point and shoot kind of photographer so some are posed and some people have no clue that they were taken. There is this quote that I found about family and it's a part of my signature on my email because I love it so very much...and I want to share it with y'all and I'll post a few more photos from the reunion.
