View 239: Field Jam

Field Jam – A party in a field with family and friends and lots of music, food and drink.

My cousin Gary from Denver and his Brother-In-Law Doc manned the grill during Field Jam hosted by Gary's brother, Billy.

I attended my cousins Ana and Billy’s annual Field Jam party over the weekend.  I had a lot of fun seeing family and friends I had not seen in a long time and catching up with everyone while not at a funeral or wedding.

Celebrating the return of a son and a birthday at Field Jam.

Field Jam was also a celebration of the return of cousin Billy Jr. from Afghanistan and his 30th Birthday.

Along with enjoying everyone’s company and the band, we got to celebrate the return from Afghanistan of Billy Jr., my cousin Billy’s son, and his 30th Birthday at Field Jam. Should have turned down my flash here but his Captain Morgan pose was saved!

As the party continued into the night, some of my cousins insisted on group photos. Red Solo Cups and red cheeks supplied the rosey glow to my subjects. 🙂

A family grouping at Field Jam.

Cousins Pam, Cheryl, Ana and Lori with sisters Dottie and Pearl at Field Jam. Dottie is the Mother of Pam and Cheryl and Dottie and Pearl are Lori’s Aunt. Dottie is Ana’s Mother-In-Law and cousins to the rest by marriage. Got that?

Already planning on going to next year’s Field Jam!

    What a great idea for a party! Looks like a great time! Have you heard this song? I bet you have since you seem to like country from what I’ve noticed over the years: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKZqGJONH68
    Meghan even had a dance to this during this past year’s dance recital!

  2. Definitely a great way to get together without a wedding or funeral. It’s so true these days that is how family usually sees each other. Looks like it was fun.
