"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...." Oops sorry wrong show.
This show should start off with in 2006 and Idea came to be fruition for a 50 th birthday party hosted at Gig and Brads in Tempe Arizona.
From there a tradition was born In 2007 our next stop was Barre Vermont where Patty and Connie were gracious enough to host the event.
For the third reunion in 2008 Crystal & Manny opened their home in Peachtree City Georgia to everyone. Look Some how Deb got inside the plane and everyone said she did not make it this day because she was not feeling well.
In 2009 it was back to Michigan for our 35th class reunion that Shellee and Deb help put together. All the mini reunion members also got together
In 2010 preparations in Ponchatoula Louisiana were being made to have the group come to the deep south for the 5 th annual reunion
All preparations were finished just in time for our first arrivals, John and Froan . We all got in the Reunion family van and made our way to the airport to pick up the group.
Arriving at the airport you had to be in the van. If you look real close at the sign on the right you will see we are going the wrong way. Ask John or Froan to explain.
I sure am glad we did not have to wait long for everyone else to arrive we were running out of room on the table to put the empties. Kimball Knights shirt given to me by Brad and Gig. Way too cool.
This person does not seem to appreciate the fun we are about to have.
After everyone checked in at the hotel a stop at Bohnings Supermarket to pick up a few items for the party.
After a stop at the supermarket we all went to the house where everyone got something to drink of their favorite libation put together a plate of food found a seat and relaxed for some great conversation.
After a while the party gravitated into the kitchen where the Margarita machine and the bottle of Corazon Tequila were located.
The next 6 photos is a series of what the night started to turn into. I have no words to describe what happened next. You had to be there to appreciate it.
After that everyone moved the party out to the pool. No photos available thank God. When the party ended for the first night a few of the group made a stop at Johns favorite place before retiring to the hotel.
Thursday Thursday started off with Manny spending some quality time with Pookey.
And this is why they put us in the back room of the restaurant
Jayne was not impressed with fried alligator tail.
After an afternoon at Oak Alley Plantation we went back to the house to relax by the pool and get ready for a Southern style dinner put on by Joanne. Also Shellee and John took time to spend a few quality moments with the boys.
