Well, it's finally here...  
I'm off to the Big Island to spend some much needed time with my family (who I haven't seen in years!) It's rather sad that the only times we all tend to get together nowadays is when someone passes away. :( Thankfully this trip is a happy one (to celebrate my Grandmother's 92nd birthday) :).

And always being the "prepared one," Mark just said the cutest thing to me - he asked me for a quick re-cap of all my relatives who we'll be seeing this weekend. I guess we see them so infrequently that he wants a crash course before we actually get there. :) Poor guy has to put up with my really HUGE extended family. ;)

Hope you all have a nice weekend! :)

That's cute about Mark. I seriously have like 100 cousins (my Mom was one of 13 and my Dad was one of 5 and they all had lots of kids) that whenever we get around my extended family, Tom says, "Now, who is that one and who do they go with?"

Have fun!

Wow that is a HUGE family! :) My Mom is one of 5 and my Dad was one of eight so our extended family is quite large too. Sometimes even I get a little confused on my Dad's side and need the run down from my Mom when we go to family gatherings. :)

That's too funny about Mark. I do that with mom on my trips to India as there are so many family members whom I haven't seen in many years. Am much better now, but there was a time I would pull mom aside to the kitchen and ask who the people are in the living room! he he he..

Forgot to mention, but hope you have a wonderful trip! I forget now..where on the big island did you go to? Lucky lucky you!!!! *sigh*

Haha! I've had to do that with my Mom regarding my Dad's side of the family before. :) Too many relatives that I rarely see - I used to get confused. ;)

We spent all of our time this trip in Hilo. :) Woo hoo! Big Island Candies, Mochi, Cafe 100, and Ken's Pancake House! :D
