Second... (June 21st Week) I was back in AZ - but not home! This was FAMILY REUNION Week! My mom's side (Abuhl's) all gathered at MARRIOTT @ The Buttes up in Mesa for the week! My grandmother (Marylin) and all her children (8 of 'em) all were able to make it with numerous generational offspring as well - over 65 made it out for this Reunion - the biggest we've ever seen! Very nice break!
