the day has come

Sunday, June 13
The day has come. Yes, this was the whole reason why I came here in Colorado - family reunion. Lots of people. Lots of events and activities. Up in the mountains. Uhhhh.
We arrived at the site in the evening, and there were already a lot of folks hanging around, while moms were busy cooking dinner for what seemed like 30 people. The dinner was served in a buffet-style; everyone made a line, helped themselves food from big pots and pans. We had herbed chicken, beef brisket, chili beans, fruit salad and corn on the cob. It somehow reminded me of those summer training camps back in the day when I played volleyball or basketball for school team... staying at a lodge in the mountains and eating food at a big table with a big group of people. Weird.
