Summer Stock Sunday - 32

My vintage look at summer for Summer Stock Sunday, hosted by Robin at Around the Island.

62 summers ago, my mom and her siblings gathered together for a photo in their front yard in Sydney, on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. At this point there were four - a fifth sibling would arrive two years later.

The fifth sibling's daughter just got married a few weeks ago along the shore of Lake Michigan. The oldest boy in this shot - my Uncle Charlie - drove out to Michigan to attend the wedding of his brother's daughter, then turned around and drove back to Nova Scotia to give away his other niece at her wedding last weekend.

My sister's wedding was a mini family reunion - as are most weddings.

Above, from L to R:

Paulette, Charlie, Sheila, Warren

Last weekend, Paulette headed off to the wedding with her beaming daughter.

Uncle Charlie accompanied his niece down the outdoor aisle.

The happy couple with Aunt Louise and Uncle Warren, here from Michigan.

It must be wonderful to have such a large family and to be that close. My family is quite small, and spread out.

What better reason for a family to get together could there be? :)

What a weekend your family had for weddings - two in two different countries. Best wishes to both happy couples.
