show n tell in the park

On Sunday we enjoyed our season finale of the Macy Family Dinner. I should explain that, though we call it the Macy family dinner, we also have Hatches and McIndoos who hang on our local family tree. All put together, 22 of us plus the matriarch—96-year-old Edna—live in the Newberg area. That alone is call for a monthly celebration of the clan! And we continue to carry out the tradition of everyone bringing a one-minute show ’n’ tell. It’s been fun over the years to watch the littles grow into the tradition, starting out very shy and becoming confident show-ers and tellers.

We usually gather in the church social hall. But because it was our finale we decided to make the most of the glorious summerish weather that day and eat outside at Memorial Park. Almost everyone came, and for some reason we had the whole park shelter to ourselves. I took a bunch of pictures, but I’ll share my favorite two—of Sage’s show ’n’ tell.

We were all curious what she’d pull out of that bag.

The bobbleheads of her parents, decor at their wedding more than ten years ago! Sage didn’t just show them, she told us all about them.

You should join us sometime. I wonder what you’ll bring for your show ’n’ tell.

PS: Here’s mine.

Photobooth snaps from the wedding I attended in DC. The telling included my whole trip, a challenge to fit into one minute.
