The bummer is that Splenda and I will be touring Southern Utah doing this. No Splenda is not running, get serious. I'm running, he's a van driver.
Anyhoo.....so in a small impromptu pre-reunion get together, a few of us met at Splenda's sister's house for a barbeque.
It was fun to meet Aunt J who I haven't seen since we got married. And watching her was like watching Splenda's dad. The similarities were eerie. I missed him. We met some new relatives that I have quickly forgotten names and had a nice quiet visit.
A fun side note, one of the cousins is the founder and CEO of Pixar. It's always fun to hear what he is up to. He's not coming in this weekend for the reunion, but his Dad will be, and he always seem to have an inside scoop, so I'm sorry we'll miss that.
It was fun to see some of the other side of Splenda's family. They are a bit more spread out than his mom's side and not as close, so it was delightful to watch the interactions.
