Schoonover Family Reunion

Tina, Rexa,Mom and I have been planning a family Reunion for over a year.
We decided to have it at the River Rendezvous in Mayo ,Florida , which is near Mom and Tina.
We decided the date  June 28th because it was Mom and Dad's Anniversary  date (6-28-1947) and Grandma Schoonover's birthdate   (6-28 1902 )
 Myself with Royce ,Rexa and Clifford, Mom , Tina and Gary
Most of my Family -11 did not come 
 Most of Rexa's family -4 of hers did not come
All of Tina's family was there
This is 45 of us  but we had 52 there on sat for the dinner . We had lots of plans to do games and etc. but it was so hot most of them stayed in the water, part time in the spring pool and part time in the regular pool , we did manage to do some tie dye shirts , I made up a little bit of the family tree but some of it was not all in there, so I am making a bigger one for next year.  We had ton's of food, Gary cooked lots of hot dogs hamburgers Fri. night,  the next day he cooked ribs ,Kevin and Jason helped .
It was so good to see everyone  some came from Ohio ,Mich. Minn. and Miss, as well as most of us from here .
Hoping to go to Tennessee next year!
 Back in March we had gone down to check on the water level at the camp it was really high and part of the camp was flooded The first sign on the tree shows how high it was this year the top one was in 2009
The Spring Pool where they spent most of their time
 Tina ,Gary and Jason the first night there cooking!

Dresses I Made For Silver Spur Cloggers

 I had gotten a message from a friend asking if I was interested in making some dresses for a team of Cloggers who are a non-profit group that work with children that want to dance .
After lots of discussions and a visit it was decided that I will make them with my DIL's help . The leader Patti told me that she felt like the Lord had sent an angel to her that had the same vision she did , after trying for a year she was so excited that I was willing to make them and have as many as I could for the 4th Of July Event at Mosic Park in Bartow ,Fl.
 I managed to get 13 dresses made and fixed her dress in 21 days .I needed to get them done on time for my daughters visit to Fl . from Mich. as we had already  made plans for a Family  Reunion on the 28th of June. We made it back in time for the event.Below are some of the girls ,and they are all so happy !!
 This is Yvonne
 Patties dress ,I had to make a new back because of the way someone else put in the zipper ,then I added the ruffles to the skirt and neckline , She fell in love with it!
 Jessica , a very good 4 yr old dancer
 At the event -Patricia with Chloe and Sarah-- I did not make the black and blue outfits ,just the Zebra with blue and silver.
All of them dancing
 Patti and Allen both have been planning this event for a year! A Very Happy Couple !

Notice the tiny little girl in left corner and the little boy on the right ,she is about 2 or 3 and he is 4

Tie Dye Event At Family Reunion

 My Daughter Tammy and her daughter Kayla wanted us to do a Tie Dye Project on Sat after the dinner and a cooling off swim while we were at the reunion. so we did this kind of late but it turned out really good.


        This is how we wanted to do it , everyone had their own way of doing it with the colors they wanted
This one and the last one was rinsed too early so some of the colors run ,have to remember to let dry completely ,I think I will iron mine just to set the colors .

A couple of them Sam and I did after we got home.
