Johnson Family Reunion 2012


Our annual extended Johnson family reunion is over for another year. We gathered cousins, spouses, grandparents and all the kiddies at the Icelandic Reunion in Spanish Fork city park for a fun afternoon of hot dogs, KFC, and authentic lamb cuisine. There were games and activities for the kids, visiting and reminiscing for the older ones and cousins Doug and Mimi Johnson visiting us from Northern California. Quite a posterity for Vilborg Thordardottir, a widow who brought her four children to Utah from Iceland in 1874-see chart in the middle. And we are only one small part of her numerous posterity.

Sounds like a great time! I wish we lived closer so we could get to these reunions. Thanks for the update and pictures =)

It's so lovely that you have these annual family gatherings. I'm thinking we should be getting together sometime soon too.

My family needs to have a "cousins" reunion. We have lost all the parents now, so we never get together anymore. I think it's a wonderful thing to do. You are lucky.

It looks like a great family picnic, Lin, and I can see your hand it keeping the family history.
