Time Magazine Covers Our Jackson/Mayes Family Reunion

The weekend of July 7th and 8th in Michigan brought beautiful summer temps that were not too hot or humid, but JUST RIGHT...God truly smiled upon us last weekend. After 2 years of preparation (not to mention the LAST MINUTE CHANGES...), the Jackson/Mayes 5th Family Reunion was great a success! The Jackson/Mayes Detroit Experience was big fun and new relationships were forged.

Family members joined the Michigan Host Family from Georgia, Florida, New York, and Colorado. There were so many surprises!!
Who knew so many of our family members of every age could sing so well!! Move over American Idol...WE ROCK!! Our family sung unique renditions of the Motown Classics and our kids sang very spirited tracks from Disney's High School Musical kareoke CD.
The surprise appearance of a certain family member who had been so instrumental in jumpstarting the Michigan host family's planning efforts for this year's events after it was confirmed that she would not attend, pleased us beyond…

Happy 4th of July!

I couldn't get the skin brown all over...know how?
