The Gonzalez Family Reunion

Last Saturday, mom told Nick, "there is no AHRC today, we are going to visit mom's cousins and have a family reunion, just like the big parties we used to have when nana was with us.

Here is a picture of the family taken at the hotel.
We had the party at cousin Lina's house.  There was a big pool and everyone went swimming.
Nick liked the waterfalls in the pool.
Grammy put Ryder on the swing and he had a big smile on his face.
When things got too loud, Nick retreated to the hammock.  He liked to sit there quietly, rocking back and forth.
Then we called Nick back to the party for birthday cake.  Grammy and Nick used to share their cake with nana but now she is gone. Little cousin Lilly has a birthday a few days before Nick, so now we have a new name on the cake.
When the party was over mom said to Nick, "Thank you for being such a good boy.  I had a great time seeing the family again!"

A wonderful weekend. Nick got to see his cousins and they were happy to see Nick all grown up.

I agree! A wonderful weekend. It was fun to watch Nick enjoy the pool at Lina's!

I'm glad it went so well. We had a family reunion in July where several of the kids retreated to a hammock as well, we're thinking of getting one for the back yard!
