On Saturday my mom’s side of the family gathered at my parent’s house in Ventura for our annual family reunion. My mom is the youngest of nine children – which means lots and lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins! My parents have always been quite the party hosts (must be where I get some of my zesty qualities ;)). Our backyard has turned into the ultimate spot for dinners, BBQ’s, celebrations and more! I wanted to show you a little peek at our family reunion and the setting that makes every Wagner party a party to remember 😉
My Dad, the most amazing handy-man I know, built this “bar” for our outside patio. There are six separate compartments to this handy set-up that can be used to store cold drinks, bottle-openers, mixers, napkins or whatever else you might need!
And of course he also built this cooler-case to keep in our backyard – he’s all about the decor!
And here is my mom with her eight brothers and sisters enjoying the backyard at the reunion – you don’t think they look related or anything, do you? 😉
And of course I was happy – I got to play mom for the night with baby cousins 🙂 perks of a big family!
Hope you’re inspired for your next backyard gathering!
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!
