We had a great day!! I loved being with my cousins and uncles and their families once again. When we were young, we got together every Easter at Avocado Lake or Roeding Park Zoo for an Easter egg hunt or picnic. We also celebrated Thanksgivings and Christmas times together at Grandma’s house, and later in our various homes. We cousins saw each other often as we grew up together.
We missed Dad this year. Our Patriarch has graduated. Kris was here to represent him.

We got to meet Angela, Brent’s new wife. He sadly lost our cousin, Juli to Covid. We’re so happy he’s found a wonderful companion.

Take a look at how Mark grilled the tri-tip–it’s hanging from hooks in a barrel oven.
