A Homecoming Weekend!

Yum
My family loves geneology and this weekend was the epitomy of such. The Solomon Reunion was held in Marceline this weekend and family from all over the United States attended: Florida, Texas, Missouri, Oregon, Illinois, and Kansas were some of the states represented.

We kept busy with a number of activities. One included seeing my sister's art in the local museum. Below are some samples of her work:



We took the kids to the local Walt Disney pool. Here are Ashley, Tristan, and Kassie in the water. I was extremely jealous but you won't catch me near a swimsuit.



Our family loves to eat! There are some fabulous cooks in our family. Here we are at Susie's, a local favorite. We feasted on gigantic breaded tenderloins and dusty millers, a local ice cream treat. I have never heard of dusty millers served any where else! Judy, one of my dad's cousins (technically my second cousin) has had her kitchen in Midwest Living magazine and publishes recipes in many venues!







After dinner we headed to our local carnival. Such fun riding on the retro rides, eating cotton candy and listening to music. You can bet there were some tired people after all this fun! And, the kids were tired, too!

  3. I'm not usually a fan of family reunions, but yours sure looked like fun.
    Just thinking that my life has been a Tilt-A-Whirl lately, with my vertigo and all...

  4. Hi Terri,

    Looks like fun!

    I've never heard of a "dusty miller" before...sounds like a dirty moth to me...hope it tasted good. :-)
