A couple of weekends ago, we were able to attend a small family gathering at Sequoyah State Park in Oklahoma. Not all of our family was able to be there, and those that weren't there were missed. But, it was wonderful for those of us who could make it, we did have a good time.

We gathered on Friday night for dinner, then spent all day Saturday out on a pontoon boat on the lake. We went swimming and tubing. Yes, I did go tubing! What fun! We grilled out for supper on both Friday and Saturday nights. Then on Sunday we were able to spend some time together for breakfast, and The UPS Store guy and I headed back to Texas.

Our grown kids were there, with the granddaughters. My brother, Doug, and his wife, Cathy, flew in from New York! It had been almost a year since I had seen them. Also, my nephew, Craig and his friend Amy were there.

Below are some pictures that I took. I didn't want to chance having the camera on the boat. I know myself to well, as it is, I knocked granddaughter's goggles off the boat and they sunk into the "sea."

This was the view from our room. Yes, brown grass. Alas, they have been having the high scorching heat we have been having in Texas.

Boat marina, where the pontoon boat came from.

Camera was left in the car. The rest of the pictures are of us, after a full day in the sun on the lake.

Here's our wonderful, Anna. :) Some say she looks like me. Don't know about that....

Our wonderful Rebekah, granddaughter and nephew, Craig. Cousins.

Sunset on the lake. The view from the cabin.

The chefs hard at work. Cooking the hamburgers. Chad(Rebekah's husband) and The UPS Store guy behind the smoke from the grill.

My brother and sister-in-law, Doug and Cathy, waiting to put the cheese on the burgers. Cathy is the wonderful artist who painted my Ashford Kiwi spinning wheel. If you click on the link, I am sitting at it spinning.

Sequoyah State Park is a great park and we all had a wonderful time.
