benfield/jett reunion 2012

family. fun. beach. sun.

the benfield/jett reunion happily celebrated its 21st reunion july 4th weekend in galveston texas! :)

{ps read all about the 20th reunion here}

we stayed at the victorian condos on the seawall about a block from 61st street. i definitely recommend them in terms of a great place to stay for a small family vacation.

if you have more than about ten people, i'd tell you to go somewhere else or rent a beach house. the only problem we seemed to have is there was nowhere big enough for all 35 to congregate and see each other.

which is kind of the point of a reunion. right?

anyways - here are some pictures that my uncle bobo took.

{disclaimer: everyone is a cousin, no matter what their actual relation.}

one of the most awesome things about this year's reunion was to see all the little ones running around knowing that they are the next generation of the reunion go-ers and how much fun it will be to watch them grow up every year at the reunion just like our parents watched us grow up!

next year we are going to rent a house on the beach. have you been to a beach house in galveston? any suggestion as to where a family of 30-35 can all sleep and live comfortably for a weekend?
