Family Reunion

Before Ken's funeral, Kenny and I were able to attend a family reunion for my mother's side of the family. It's the first one we've had in a LONG time. Credit goes almost entirely to Steve and Allison for finding the location and coordinating the whole thing. They should get extra credit for dealing with every one's hang ups, financial concerns, and diet issues - and for cleaning up after sick (and incontinent) kids - the majority of whom were not their own.

I love Steve and Allison. Thanks again for planning this!

"waking up with Jen"(...at 2pm)

Lots of games (indoor)
(and outdoor)

Lot's of good food (and plenty of junk food, too.)
beautiful scenery
Lots of boating/canoe-ing - Thanks Uncle Marty for bringing the canoes! (But not for drenching us anytime we had the misfortune of getting too close to you.)
And thanks Uncle Don for bringing the boat and for staying out on the lake for all day for three days straight. (Sorry for forgetting to bring you lunch that one day...) There was lots of surfing/wake boarding/tubing
The family...at least those who were able to make it and who weren't napping at the time this photo was taken.

Like this guy...
(Love you, Gramps)

It sounds like it was a fun trip! When you were telling me about the barf story, I was carsick at the time and trying real hard not to barf on you. I really wanted to hear about it, which is why I didn't say anything until after.
