Smith-Kirks Reunion July 28, 2012

This is a picture taken of most everybody who was there.  It is from Facebook; Emily's camera had run out of battery by then.
I hadn't known whether to plan to go to the Smith-Kirks Reunion in advance this year, but it did work out that I could go with Mother and Daddy and Emily, since Joy wasn't threatening to have the baby immediately when we got to Joplin.  So I was glad to be able to go and see relatives I rarely ever get to see.  This is the drive into my brother, Lyndell's land, where he has built this multipurpose building and a nice lake.  
 I took a bunch of balloons out to the end of the lane so people would know where to turn in.

 My cousin-in-law, Darla Hulett, and I had a wonderful visit while we paddled around on the lake.

 My cousins, Kevin and Kent cooked the hamburgers and hotdogs to perfection.

 Emily took all the pictures except when she was in the boat.  She took many pictures of the frogs in the lake, and she also managed to catch one.  Last I heard, no one had kissed it!
It was a fun day and I am so glad I got to go!
