At the end of Camping '08, Part III, Brandi mentioned a "gathering of the Owings family." I just wanted to clarify what an ordeal one of these events can become.
I am the middle child of five siblings, all of whom are married. Three of my siblings have four children each, the fourth (as of now) has none, and we have six. When you include Mom, we total TWENTY-NINE! To some (including Brandi and myself) this may seem small, but to most of the people I usually interact with this seems enormous.
As summer winds down, we are planning the next gathering. We have a lot of birthdays /anniversaries in August and we have to get a place big enough to have one BIG party. ; )
(This party will probably include friends of the kids and Brandi's family as well, making the number somewhere close to forty or forty-five.)
