Carter Family Reunion

Last Saturday, we traveled to Cragford to attend the Carter Family Reunion. This is Clay's grandmother's family.

The reunion was held at the Cragford School.  It was really neat. I have been there once or twice before but it had been a while back. This was the first time we have taken Will. The school is so neat because they have a lot of history about the school and pictures posted.  The school only had like 4 classrooms and a gym.  The gym has old wooden floors.  It really is an interesting site. 

Clay's grandmother has nine brothers and sisters, so including each of their spouse and family members, there were a lot of people there.

We had a great time catching up with everyone and having Will meet family members he has never seen before.

Also, one of the highlights was Clay's cousin, Tonya, got to come and bring her new baby Tyler.  He was 3 weeks old and so sweet. I love newborns. We are so happy for Tonya, Tony, and Taylor!  A little boy is just what they needed.

It was a really fun day.

When we were leaving Cragford, we decided to stop by the Harris Dam.  This is the dam on Lake Wedowee.  We wanted to take Will to see it because his Pawpaw worked on this dam during its construction. When we got to the dam we told Will that Pawpaw built it and Will's reply was "Pawpaw build me a big slide."  He didn't understand the concept of the dam and thought it was giant slide.  He thought it was great and talked all the way home about how Pawpaw built him that slide.
