Munns Reunion Part 1

This year the Munns Family Reunion was amazing. It was so wonderfully planned and executed. It was a real success. We had 4 days worth of action planned out for the Whole family to enjoy.

Our theme this year was Magnificent Munns. Vanessa opened up the Reunion Kick off with some phenomenal energy getting us so excited for the Magnificent reunion. In the Great Room all of the grand kids lined up on benches in the middle of the room... She spoke to the kids about Super Heroes and what makes them heroes. They are Loyal, Trustworthy, Dependable, Honest, Strong, Courageous... She pointed at the Grandfather, Father and Husband of our great big family, my dad, and said... "he is all of these things. And you can be too". She then asked the kids if they knew who OUR ultimate Hero is. The room got a bit quieter and one of my nieces answered, "Jesus". She was right.
My dad then got up and talked about his great, big family and how much he loves us. As Leah was sent in to his office to get "something" out he told the grand kids about how grandma has always said, "A child with many names is much loved". Leah then helped my dad hand out a shiny heart shaped balloon to each of his grand kids... Libbler, Go Go, Kitten, Rooster, Chubs, Boo, Jigga, Sissy Pantaloons, Dollface (goldie)... the list went on. It was such a sight. 30 little balloons bobbing around... all weekend long.
