Raymond Family Gathering
A visit from family turned into a small reunion of sorts and we had a great time. My grandfather's brother Willard and his son and daughter-in-law were in town for a quick visit and word spread. A BBQ turned into a good sized gathering with many of my dad's extended family in house. It was the perfect day for a BBQ, not a cloud in the sky. Everyone got to hangout outside. The kids had fun in the sand box and the kiddy pool. We had salmon, brisket and chicken so it's safe to say that no one went hungry. Our group included my parents, our boys, James and I, Neal, Evelyn, Travis, Grandma (Sybil) Raymond, JoAnn, Jody, Brett, Brooke, Teresa and daughter, Connie, Karen and daughter, Don, Doris, Willard, Steve, and Ruth.
