Family Time Back East - Part Four, Mass Family Gathering

By the initiative of the current generation of adult family members (my children and my eldest brother's children) a second iteration of a family reunion took place at the end of our week in Maryland. This consisted of three get togethers, oddly enough all focused on food (who would think that of our family?)

Wild life near seen by our rental 

For the first event, we had the family at our place.
1A roasted two extraordinary fresh, 8 pound rock fish on the grill
As well as grilling a butt ton of the rain
#2 and #3 at work in the kitchen

The next day we went to my brother's about an hour and half away on Maryland's East Shore
They have a pool
The weather was great and most took full advantage of it while I was in full paparazzi mode
2B was the target of mass children onslaughts

However the worm turns as 1.1 and 2.2 found out

Amsterdam contingent 
#3 and 3A enjoying the non-Amsterdam type weather

3.1 loves the water
3.2 decided her swimsuit was too small
And channeled her inner Riviera look
#2 and 2B
1.2 with my sister and brother-in-law
My niece X
My niece E
The nieces together

And way too many reflection shots off of sunglasses

We finished up going on Sunday to have Maryland Steamed Crabs
I was way too busy eating to take pictures other than 2.2 showing 2.4 the now diminished pile of crabs being consumed

Grilling in the rain shows great dedication to food. You were wise in letting 1a join the family, as he clearly has the necessary foodie chops.
