Ing Family Reunion
I really enjoyed the family reunion. As usual, I brought a descendancy chart so that everyone could find their family. I was happy to receive updates.

Conversation was a big part of things, sometimes accompanied by cribbage or other games. Outside we had a horse-shoes competition and I let myself get talked into competing. To my total dismay, Darlene and I made it into the final round, where we were defeated 21-15 by Dave and Diane. (If I had thought there was any chance of making it to the final round I would have borrowed some sunscreen! Oh well, hindsight is 20/20, as they say.)

They also had a beanbag toss, where Judy and Laurel took part. Andrew's family also came. We had at least 40 people there, about an average turn-out for the Ing family reunion. I found a new genealogy buddy among the younger generation. That is always a plus! I had invited cousins from North Carolina and Australia, but they couldn't come. Maybe next time ...
