New tradition

Finally, I am getting these amazing pictures on the blog. I only posted a few of the many great pics that Ashley Schrage took at the Quinlan Family Reunion (Mark's Mom's side) in July in Perry. This year, we realized that it will only get harder and harder to get all of the relatives together at Christmas so a plan was made to start a summer activity that will get us all together. I think this is a great idea and we had a blast. I'm pretty sure a new tradition has been born. We started the day with a golf tourney, spent some time in the pool in the afternoon, and had pics and a BBQ at night. I'm thankful I've married into such a great family.
This is a classic Grandpa Tom pose. Gotta love it. :)

The kiddos playing t-ball. Addelyn was having a blast!


Nicole, Matt's wife (Matt is Mark's brother) and their little boy Trae


Ty, Nicole's five year old son- what a sweet and very smart kid. Love his smile!



Mark and his Grandpa Tom- I'm sure this was a wisdom-filled conversation. :) Or one that includes mean comments to each other about the Cubs or Cardinals (Mark=HUGE CUB FAN. Grandpa=HUGE CARDINALS FAN.) You can probably imagine their conversation.


Addelyn- she had a blast that weekend!


Joe is married to Mark's cousin Andrea. Their twins Jack and Reed are so sweet and cute. Life has to be busy in their household with these boys running around!

The WHOLE Quinlan crew- uncles, aunts, cousins, and more!
Family pic, awww....


I love this picture of Mark's parents. They are amazing people!

The Hoskinson crew
