Family Reunion

In August 2002 some relatives from Montrose New York came to the UK for a visit. Susan is Richard's dad's uncle's daughter, so we think that makes her Richard's 2nd cousin (although we could be wrong!). Traveling with her were her husband, Craig, & her two boys, Thomas & Christopher. On Aug 23 we took over the restaurant at the Three Horseshoes in Towersey & had dinner along with a few family friends (21 people in total). On Aug 25 we had a family barbecue at Richard's mum & dad's house. There were around 20 people there, but not the same 20 people who went to dinner two days before! Confused? Well you should be able to see who was at which function when you check out the pictures below!
