Family Reunion Part 1

I made so many cartoons of the family reunion that I had to break it up into parts.  So this is part one, which I decided to make about my favourite fam. reunion activity: swimming.

Our family doesn't just swim.  We don't just get in the water, float around a bit, and get out.  Uh-uh.  We play.  And it's really fun.  If you need some tips on how to play in the water, because you want to reconnect with your inner child or some other such reason, read on below!

1: FREEZE TAG.
So fun.  And frightening when your brother-in-law is really fast and ruthless.  Feel free to yell out that you're frozen in a despairing, hoarse, frantic voice.  It ramps up the fun.



2: LEAP FROG
Genius.  Genius!  And so hilarious.  man.  We got some good laughs out of this one.


3: DANCING IN THE WATER BY FOLLOWING THE LEAD OF A POMPOUS  CONDUCTOR:
(being pompous is a must). This one is very entertaining, but you have to try it out to know it.



Other water activities that have been family reunion tested:
-designing a routine for everyone to follow through (ex: scissor kick,  to leap frog, to hand stand, to 'be a ball')
-throwing large rocks into the water and having people race to see who can grab it first
-tackling


And that is the end of part one.  For those that weren't pictured here, don't worry because there's more to come!

  3. One part that you forgot to mention (although maybe you didn't notice in the hype of the game freeze tag) which put the hilarity over the top for me, I almost started drowning from laughing so hard was Dean observing quietly on the beach and then saying "what a bizarre game" Little did he know...that was only the beginning...

  4. Bethany, I love your drawings. They are so simple yet you can tell exactly who they are. I would love to see some childrens books written and illustrated by you. I would buy them. You are so talented!
