It's funny when we get to a gathering like this. We all tend to congregate with our immediate family in the beginning until we warm up to each other again. Then we spread out and 3rd cousins meet each other for the first time and play together. We've all changed over the years but you end up visiting with the cousins who have the kids the same age and compare stories and get to know each other all over again.
Chris, my brother-in-law, brought enough baseball equipment for every person to play ball with! It was so fun. My uncle shut off the electric fence, moved the cows to a different pasture and grabbed the shovel. We played a full 9 innings with players coming and going when they wanted. It was an automatic double if the ball flew in the little river and a timeout in the game to fish it back out of there.

I had to post this pick of Scott swinging out of his shorts. I love how I captured the ball behind him as he misses. So mean of me, but he rarely misses and I love teasing him. He kept saying his back hurt because he was wearing sandals, not because he was swinging so hard! Right Scott.
My cousins little girl and Emmitt are just months apart. They hit it off wonderfully. It was fun to see these cousins play together all these years later.
Emma Rae just chillin'. She was of course a big helper with my kids, as always.
