I have a family tree
With branches by the dozens.
(And we gathered with the branches of Noble and Hazel Rogers--that's Dave's dad's mom's parents.)
I have grandpas, I have grandmas,
I have uncles, aunts, and cousins.
(Boy, do we have cousins! The kids enjoyed meeting cousins they hadn't seen before, and tubing the San Juan River with some of them.)
When it's reunion time,
(June 2013, Pagosa Springs, Colorado.)
No matter what the weather.
(The weather was lovely, but Charlotte was feeling rather under the weather. We were grateful for many who helped and shared, especially for Cousin Kay sharing a nebulizer when Charlotte got wheezy. Here she is looking cute modeling her family reunion t-shirt dress.)
It is such a happy day
When the family gets together!
(Especially if you can beat them all in a foot race and win a dollar like Eli.)
