Four months ago, I was in Fiji missing my family. So, to make me feel more at home I decided to plan a picnic. I sent out an invitation via e-mail to all of my cousins currently living in Provo, letting them know that on Sunday, September 13 I was going to host a Cousins’ Picnic.
After four months of planning (well, actually probably about a half hour or so of planning over four months) that picnic actually happened!
It was so fun – in attendance were the 15 cousins in Provo on the VanDerwerken side:
Brent and Laci, Kaylie and Madison, Tyson and Ariel, Jason and Aaron, Doug and Charisse, Chris and Brian, Elizabeth, and Nate and me.
We had delicious carne asadas (thanks Nate) along with chips and guac and skittles and soda. The best part was when Nate lit his head on fire. No one was seriously hurt, Nate’s just missing some hair and his right eye’s eyelashes.
