Stuckey Family Reunion 2014

Around fifty family members gathered at my parents house last weekend for a family reunion.  Unfortunately the weather wasn't great, but the company and food were fantastic!  This was the best group shot we could get even though it is missing a few who came at different times.
This shot includes the two remaining Stuckey sisters, June (88) and Earleen (90).  My grandmother was their sister and there were eight siblings in all.  The others pictured are the second generation and their spouses.
 Then the third generation and spouses...
 and the fourth generation!

John cooked up a lot of food and it was all delicious!
Aunt Earleen and Aunt June with the youngest family members!  I believe these would be their great-great-nephews.  Oddly enough Gabriel and ** were born on the exact same day!
 Trey, Lisa, and Halley joined us on Sunday
 Along with Rob, Denise, Preston, and Sawyer

We just returned from our annual family trip to Highlands, North Carolina.  The weather was beautiful and the kids had a blast all playing together.  Here's a quick rundown of our trip.

Dinner at The Orchard

 S'more night!


 Silver Run Falls



 Dinner at High Hampton Inn
Apparently this is what little girls do when they see a camera...
and this is what little boys do...

Another day, another waterfall.
 

Dinner at Old Edward's Golf Club








Slick Rock (which isn't very slick)
 Bryant and Miller hiked down into the valley and made this mama a nervous wreck.  If you look closely you can see Papa at the top where we were waiting.

Jacob's 2nd Birthday

Jacob turned two on May 13th!  We had such a fun day celebrating him.  We started off the day with strawberry pancakes and candles. 


We spent most of the day playing at home.  Hunter, Hays, and Addie came over to play and we decorated cupcakes.  It was messy, but fun!
Later that week we went for Jacob's checkup.  He weighs 28 lbs. and is 34 inches tall.  He's growing well and we are so thankful for a healthy little boy!
 
 Saturday was party day!























 

 Give me my cake!!!






Jacob had lots of helpers opening his presents!













That night we went to hear a band play at a park downtown and ate dinner at a local place outside.  Such a fun day and night!

Happy birthday, sweet Jacob!  You are a wild, crazy, "passionate", cuddly, sweet, blabbering, adorable little boy and I'm so thankful you are mine!  Here's to many more!
