2006 Eigsti Reunion
Went to a big family reunion this past weekend up in Flanagan, Illinois. Eigsti is my grandma Strotheide’s maiden name, so the reunion included my great-aunts and their families. Many of the Strotheides have spread out so far that it’s tough for us all to get together, so it was great to see so many of them at this reunion.
Here’s a photo (right) of one of the games set up for the kids. It was a relay in which the kids tried to fill up their team’s cup with water. Of course the cup was being held on someone’s forehead, for good measure.
It wasn’t that close to my Grandma Strotheide’s birthday, but since everyone was around, they got her a big cake for her 90th birthday.
Julie didn’t get to go this time. She was busy moving her mom to Lexington, Ken., and driving back.
