A Family Affair...
So...this past weekend was the Lima Pipeline Reunion in my parent's hometown, Lima, OH. Basically it was like a high school reunion for everybody who graduated from Lima Senior High School. Three of my uncles were in town, my dad, and a lot of my parent's friends. This was an opportunity for Jeri to meet more of my family.
You would have thought Jeri had been around my family forever. She fit right in and it was a beautiful thing to see.
The funniest thing was that her and my dad were like two peas in a pod...it was really a joy to see. The whole weekend I caught them several times just sitting and talking to each other, laughing, dancing, etc. It always feels good to see my family enjoying Jeri's presence just as much as she enjoys theirs.
I try to involve Jeri in my family affairs and things like that because I want her to experience things that she doesn't experience in her own family. I'm not saying her family doesn't love each other, have fun together, etc., but I know there are certain experiences that she hasn't had that being around my family can provide. I feel like there are so many experiences that we can share over our relationship...and I can't wait to get there...:)
