Taber Reunion 2004

Shortly after school started, we drove up to Michigan for the annual Taber Family Reunion — a gathering of the descendants of my grandparents, Marcius & Mearl Taber. 

That’s most of us in the picture to the right (if you’re so inclined, you can click on the thumbnail to see the full-sized image).

This year’s event was held in St. John’s, Michigan, where my Aunt Margie and Uncle Gordon live and work. St. John’s is also my official birthplace, though I don’t believe I’ve ever been back to the place in the 40-something years since that event. Until now…

After we were done eating, Melinda had fun climbing on the playground fort with Benjamin and Jeremy (and then sitting and reading a comic book/graphic novel while snacking on the traditional no-bake oatmeal cookies made from Great-Grandma Taber’s recipe):

Christopher spent a lot of time spinning on the merry-go-round and playing Magic with his y-chromosoned second cousins:

While throughout the festivities Colleen sat comfortably in one place on the picnic table bench, resting her leg and cheerily talking with whomever happened to stop by:
