Family Get-Together on Memorial Weekend

My brother-in-law Rick and his wife Jill, always host a get together party for family and friend during memorial day every year.
They live in Chester, West Virginia, a 45  minute drive  from  where we live.
We love  driving  out there because it is very refreshing to see  the  farms with cows and horses and my husband adore these two log cabins that are built near my BIL's property.
Their home is a perfect  place for a party, there's lots of entertainment.  They have a swimming pool, a game room, and the scenery is very relaxing.
Hubby and I played table tennis after the kids  has done playing.
We also played corn hole  game with Jim and Jen.
 
It rained and there were thunder and lightning but it  subsided after  10 minutes or so.  We spotted two wild turkeys  at their backyard chasing the squirrel.  The squirrel is hiding beside the tree. Just click the photo to see an enlarged  version.
We went home with filled tummies.  The kids were exhausted  from swimming.  We had once again had a great time  with family and friends.

Dear Rose,
This is what spending time with family is all about...good food, laughter, fun and enjoying each other's company. My wife and I spent the day with my two sisters whom we don't get to see a lot due to my crazy work schedule. It was hot and humid in the 90s and we didn't get home until 3:00am this morning (Tuesday), but we had a great time. Now to catch up on some well-needed sleep! LOL
Thanks for sharing & visiting. Have a great week!

I loved the description of your family together time. Nothing so rejuvenating as eating, playing games and swimming together. But those wild turkeys and the squirrel. Now that really made me laugh. Great post!
