this summer has been incredibly busy to say the least. hence the reason i haven't posted about this family reunion we had at the end of july. there is so much i could say about it, but i'll some it up with a few things that stick out and a massive amount of photos:
*bonfires and fireworks are still my favorite part of the beach.
*smurf blue hoodies and tshirts stand out.
*i wish i had decided to stay up with the cousins and chat until 3am that one night. sounds like i missed out. :(
*the goonies house doesn't at all look like it does in the movie.
*i have more in common with some of my cousins than i realized.
*hooray! there is now a goodwill in astoria.
*i wish merv could have come for longer than 36 hours.
*planning a reunion is worth the effort.
