Yesterday, we attended the annual Hergert Picnic. The weather was perfect, there was plenty of delicious, home-cooked food, games, and an endless amount of family time. Many there had not met Everett yet and as he got passed around, he had more separation anxiety than I had ever experienced before. He lasted all but a few seconds before he cried such a pitiful cry as if I had given him away. I told Dale it was good for him.
He allowed Grandma to spend some time with him as long as Dale and I were in sight. It was really great to see extended family even though at first, it's a guessing name game. I got called Jessica, Brieanna (my sister), and Whitney (my cousin). But then again, I am probably guilty of calling others by the wrong name too. Even so, it was another great reunion as it is every year and I'm already looking forward to next year.
