A "NOT SO" Family Reunion

After our 94 year old Mom died this past February, my sister decided that we should get together more often than our usual Thanksgiving dinner.( That's been a thirty plus year event) She came up with the idea of a "SIBLING RETREAT". As there are six siblings, everone gets a turn. Our first was in Asheville,NC in April; number 2 was in Canton,NC at the Home Place and the 3rd was in Kinston,NC. They all have been great but the Kinston affair was wonderful.My bro took the two car garage and set it up for the food with tables and chairs. It was air conditioned. :) Normally,all of us are never eating in the same place but this time we were and it was great.Eatin and Minglin!! :D There was a Pig Pickin, barbecue(eastern style),grilled chicken,fried fish from the ocean,potato salad, cole slaw,baked beans,collard greens, tossed saled and lots of homemade cakes. I think what made this one so special was the "inlaws and friends that we do not see on Thanksgiving due to their family commitments. Considering that Kinston is 5 hours away from most of us, we had a head count of 42 and that was amazing.We had a wonderful time and I want to say Thanks to a Sister who came up with this marvelous idea.We can say now that we do not get together for funerals and Thanksgiving only ;)
Blessings
Gwen
