June 1st was the 83rd birthday Birthday Boyof Mother’s oldest brother, Broadus Chriscoe. On Saturday the 2nd, his family had a surprise picnic party for him at his houseBroadus Chriscoe, inviting all his brothers and sisters Family membersand their families. I drove down to his house in the Union Grove community in Moore County with Mother and Roman.

Someone from every branch of the familyMother, Gina, Dean was there Me, Mother, Uncle Bobexcept for Aunt Vera’s, who is down in Atlanta. Kenneth Kenneth and his Familycooked burgers and hot dogs on the grill, andRoman, Mother everyone else brought something, so it was a typically-overstocked American picnicPicnic Begins. Aunt Mona Rae brought a banana pudding, which I liked the best. (BTW: The skinniest people in these photos are obviously not Chriscoes… besides RomanRoman, Eating As Usual, there are the boyfriends Foodof Patricia’s daughters Heather and Amber. )

I used part of the time to collect names and dates for the Chriscoe side of our family treeMe which I’ve put into the geneaology program at Ancestry.Com (one of those Mormon programs, stored forever in a salt mine out West). Anyone can check it out; this is the link to my tree, which will show both the Whatley and Chriscoe sides: http://trees.ancestry.com/pt/pedigree.aspx?tid=2384080&pid=-1844418166&pg=0
