Family Reunion

We leave for a family reunion in a week. It is a reunion of my mothers siblings. She has 9 of them that are still alive. I planned the whole sha-bang from here in Hawai'i. Isn't that funny? I don't know how I did it but I did... thanks to the help of one of my dearest cousins. She and I work really well together. The funny thing is that I picked on her like crazy when we were little. Now... she's one of the very few women that KNOW me, inside out. LOL..

I'm pretty excited. Here's the rundown of events:

Friday, July 25th
630pm DINNER -- I have a few activities lined up.... more like Ice Breakers. That should get us to 730 when we have our talent show. I can't wait to see what's going to be done! I have prizes for the following categories:
Funniest Skit
Best Costumes
Most Participants from a family
Most UNIQUE Talent
Straight from the BUSH -- talent judged on authenticity to village life
*****
By 830, we should be ready to dance the night away.

Saturday, July 26th
We have a Barbecue/Sports Day. We've organized some games for anyone who is brave enough to play. I'll also have dominoes and cards and a few other board games for the old heads.

Sunday, July 27th
CHURCH!! Immediately after -- family picture.
I'm trying to squeeze in brunch sometime that day but I'm not sure if the funds will stretch that far. We'll see.

Monday, July 28th
Devotional @ my Grandmother's grave followed by a final day of fun at the local rec center.

Sounds like fun to me and I'm really excited. We have t-shirts also. Wish me luck that everything will run accordingly!!! Woooohoooo!!
