2009 Birrell Family Reunion Day 2

Memories of Day 2
Yummy breakfast in the backyard, family relays by Brent & Carolyn (pushing the potatoes across the yard with a pencil, racing with our toes carrying marbles, twirling around the crochet mallets and knocking over the cups with wet sponges, pie eating contest, collecting corks with only your mouth in the swimming pool, filling up a liter bottle with a leaking plastic cup of water), Birrell / Anderson girls playing Ultimate UNO in teams, whiffle ball, making fresh limes in the afternoon, David & Natalie in love, playing Scattergories Scott & Jill style, just being together, the kids running & jumping in the pool, naps, Conrad jumping into the pool, bbq brisket sandwiches, family picture with those able to be there, playing an enlightening game of "How Well Do Mom & Dad Know Each Other?" Homemade ice cream sandwiches, Angie & Kristen are already in the planning stages of Birrell Family 2010 and we are looking forward to it :)
