Those same trees are still there. My nephew now lives in my Grandfather's old house with his wife and children, and my brother build his house on the other side of the row of willow trees. We still gather under the trees several times most summers to celebrate holidays or other family events with a picnic lunch and games and visiting. The huge extended family reunions under the trees are mostly a thing of the past, though we did gather together with my cousins for an afternoon picnic and visit at a different location this past summer. It is good to get together with family, whether it is under the trees or some other location.
Does your family have a favorite traditional place for reunions?
