Later in the afternoon we got to go on a tour of the buildings not yet restored. It was really fun to see them and to hear what the owners future plans are.
The evening meal was a Pasta Bar with meatballs and Jared's famous alfredo sauce. Carol made a wonderful greek salad and Walmart did the garlic bread! Thanks to all the cooks that made this reunion so tasty!
We ended the evening with our family auction. It was filled with some major cute items. I forgot to get pictures but I do have one of the collage that Sara Perry did of Grandma Garner. And I took some of the things that I bought.

We were just about to start the games again and the lights went out. We spent some time on the porch watching the lightening and telling ghost stories. Jana had the best one.....ask her to tell you sometime! Mindie and Jared and Liz, Amanda and I had a funny conversation in the hallway sitting on floor together. I tried to go to bed and couldn't sleep so I got up again and went down to join the group having very interesting conversations about boxes and strings in the great room. Such a fun reunion! We were all together and it made a huge difference! Always something to do and someone to do it with.
