2007 Moss Family Beach Reunion We are fresh back from the annual reunion at the beach and had a great time. We also got to see Memaw and Papa Julian in Daphne and Grandmother and Grandaddy Wettermark in Mobile on our way down to the beach. In Daphne, Little Philip chased some guineas across the field and loved it when they all started cackling together before they went up to roost at night. Once again, Renie and little man stayed the entire week but Daddy spent most of the week with us before heading to Starkville for new student orientation days. This reunion had a little more activity than usual, with cousin Jimbo Moss marrying Britney Wilkes on Saturday evening. Little Philip loved the music and dancing and stayed up way past his bedtime. During the week we dined on the traditional Moss BBQ shrimp, along with some shrimp poboys and shrimp casserole, etc. While last year's trip made for some interesting beach strategy with a not-quite one year old, this year was a blast for little man, who loved the sand, surf, and sun. He also loved getting to know all of his cousins better. Daddy got up early one morning and went out to the beach to watch the sunrise. We took his word for it and saw pictures later that day. All in all, it was a wonderful week of memories, but Maggie Moss was never far from our thoughts as this was the first year both she and Boompah were not with us.
