ahhh the turners.
there's something to that name.
and yes, i wish it were still mine.
so over the weekend ronnie and i made the treck
to the lake of the ozarks
to spend a few quality days with all the other turners.
our first family reunion.
and the first time i've seen some of these people in 10 years.
we had fun.
we met up at shorty pants - a restaurant bar on the lake,
where i had the most amazing shrimp po boy ever.
i mean it.
the next morning we split up.
some went shopping at the outlet mall.
others went to the pool.
isn't madeline adorable?
that afternoon we all met up again at my cousin's house
and lined up for family photos.
first, the original turners.
my aunt, uncle and dad (with spouses)
and their kids.
brian and i, connie and melinda, and doug.
we're only missing chris.
my brother is 6'2 and clearly looking short in this pic.
doug is about 7'1.
holy mother, right?
and then our kids.
(not mine, obvi)
you can see the age range.
two to eighteen.
we spent the days drinking/eating/playing games and catching up.
it was fun and i hope we don't have to wait another 10 years to do it again.
the next morning we took dad out for breakfast for father's day.
and then headed home.
it was relaxing.
and wah la.
my weekend in pictures.
