The whole big family! We're all waving at the camera to encourage Vanessa to look in that general direction. It was a great idea in theory... although Vanessa didn't actually look at the camera, I think the waving makes for a nice picture!
The fellows in the back are my Uncle Bob, my brother Zak, my Dad and his Dad (Papa), my cousin Brett, and Tasha's husband Mark. The ladies in the front are Donna (Grandma K), my sister Heather, me and Elizabeth and Vanessa, my sister Hannah, my great-grandma Phyllis (Oma), my aunt Teri, and my cousins Tasha and Danielle.
Most of the pictures that I have for posting are of Elizabeth being held, rather than Vanessa being held. There are two main reasons for this: 1)Vanessa's definitely getting to that stage where she's not too fond of being held or holding still for pictures, and 2) she spent a good portion of the reunion bouncing on the trampoline!
Here are my cousin Tasha and Elizabeth looking just beautiful.
Vanessa found great glee in bouncing on the trampoline! The glee was kind of catching, actually.
Some of the lovely ladies at the reunion -- Hannah, Donna, and Danielle.
The outdoor game of choice at the reunion was Ladder Ball. It was a Kaylor reunion after all, so of course it had games! I actually had a minute to enjoy a toss or two. Much fun was had by all.
Here are the Kaylor siblings, plus Elizabeth and Vanessa. Although they aren't in this picture, Jake and Jessica and their daughters Katelyn, Jadyn, and Bryn were definitely in our hearts and minds on this day. It is hard sometimes that Texas is so far away. Tonight again, I'm definitely thinking of you, my brave family in Texas!
I thought I'd close with a picture of Vanessa and her uncle Zak, one of the few times that Vanessa held still during the reunion. Maybe it's because he pretended to put Play-doh in his ear, or maybe it was all that bouncing on the trampoline, but Vanessa just loves her uncle Zak.
