My Family Reunion Pictures Were Taken On The Beach Operation Husky Happened

My family has a reunion every four years. We throw a number of destinations in a hat and pick one. That is the place we decide to have the reunion. It's fair and a way everyone has a say.
The most recent destination was Sicily, Italy. Everyone was excited about it. Over 30 of my family members would be on the beach in such a beautiful country none of us had ever been to. It was extra special because Italy was my pick. I must admit I'm pretty lucky when it comes to these drawings. My wife was very excited.
We packed all of our things and and got ready for the flight from home to Italy. The flight was a breeze even with our young one year old who slept most of the flight. He was a champ.
When we arrived we met at the hotel my entire family booked out completely. It was so much fun catching up with everyone, having dinner and meeting all of the in-laws.
After our introduction night it was time to take our big family picture we take each reunion. This picture was extra special because this would be my son's first photo with his big family. What made it even more special was that the photo was taken on the same beach Operation Husky. There was a Sicily native who told us.
We were surround by a historical site and we didn't even know it. It's so hard to imagine that there was a war that took place here and now a joyous family reunion that brought love.
