The 55'ers Are Reuniting!

 Earlier this year I went on and on about the fact that I was born in 1955 and this is my 55th year! I thought that was pretty cool, but even more more cool is that I am part of an exclusive club called The Fifty-Fiver Club!

As explained back here, I had four other cousins all born the same year and our delighted families celebrated us each year with a family camp-out reunion.

The big news today is that we are finally having a small reunion this Sunday at a restaurant a couple hours away!

I have not been in much contact with them for years and years. This last summer I got us all reconnected through Facebook though and it has been really fun to share pictures and memories. (Even got the story published in MORE Magazine Online!)

So I will take lots of pics of us old people now that will not be nearly as cute as these pics from long ago!

Should be interesting! Nervous? yes. Happy? yes!

Got together for our fortieth year.


  1. This is exciting! I have reconnected with some relatives via facebook also, but we haven't quite gotten as far as you...yet. Have a GREAT time! Can't wait to hear all about it!

  2. Love getting reconnected also...with FB, etc...55 you are doing wonderful! Great idea with cousins

  3. That is so cool Brenda.
    Re-connecting is always fun, and with the help of FB reconnecting is something I've been doing with family, and school friends.

    We tend to get so caught up in our own life's (Lives).. doing our own thing. Sometimes we need to remember, and make the effort to stay in touch.

    Have fun re-connecting!
