HAIL, HAIL THE GANG'S ALL HERE!! (ALMOST)
I think I'm the last person to post about our family's reunion at Trinity Lake over the Labor Day weekend. It started out that Lindsey and Alan and Isobel were coming over so we planned a trip to the lake. We told Chris that he and his family should come down and be with all of us. I mentioned it to Kasey never thinking she'd be brave to fly with all three kids to join us (Matt's in Dental School and couldn't come) but she did. Brave, or crazy girl! Then at the last minute Alex and her two friends decided to drive from Provo for the weekend. What a wonderful time to have all your children, most spouses, and all eight granchildren together. I absolutely loved hearing the words "Grandma" or "GramPam" continually. I loved it when the ALL wanted to go swimming with me or cried when I wasn't on a boat with them. The four oldest slept with Lee and I in our cabin and I was able to eavesdrop on some absolutely adorable conversations. Beautiful children, wonderful spouses, delightful grandchildren. I am blessed.
p.s. When I got home and looked at the pictures I'd taken I realized it was all of the grandchildren. We really did have adults there, next time I'll include them.
