A Sweetly-Odd Pennsylvania Meeting...

28 days ago Sandi and I were hanging out at Grandma Uchida's house in sunny and warm Honolulu, Hi talking story with Uncle Mel, Aunty Mary and Grandma Uchida. Last night I spent some time with Aunty Mary and her many cousins and aunt in Terre Hill, PA. Terre Hill is just 20 minutes south of where Sandi and I live in Reading.

It was all a bit surreal, considering I had just seen aunty Mary a short time ago...but in a much different and far away place. Unfortunately, Sandi was on call and could not attend because she had to work all night.=( It was a joy meet aunty Mary's cousins and aunt. It was a sweet reunion...not only because there was lots of ice cream and toppings, but because there was a reuniting of family members that had not seen each other in years...and in come cases, had never even met! Mahalo to Clyde and Carolyn for graciously opening up your home!

Say, I thought I saw the word "Lancaster" and I see that one of the women in the pictures is wearing a covering. Would that imply you have some Mennonite family members? Just curious.

yes...that is correct! my uncle, born and raised in Honolulu, Hi. married a Mennonite girl from Ohio. She has family in Lancaster/Ephrata/New Holland...so that's why she was in Eastern PA.
