Family Reunion

We returned last night from a 3-day family reunion. 13 children, ages 3 - 15, 12 adults, all stayed in a very large and very beautiful cabin in the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. We had a wonderful time. All of our family was there except our youngest son and two granddaughters. They were sorely missed. I thought I would just share a few pictures.

Here is "Uncle Jason" playing Barbies with Amelia:

A view from one of the many overlooks:

A few of the grandchildren (all cousins to each other!) having a quick lunch before going on to the next activity:

That's me. Everyone else had gone up on the observation tower above Clingman's Dome, which is the highest peak in Tennessee. I have acrophobia, so was quite content to wait at the bottom.

My favorite thing was to sit on the couch in the living room when everyone was in the cabin. The adults were all busy, talking and cooking and just enjoying being together. The children were running around playing and yelling and screaming and having a fabulous time. I would just drink in that marvelous family sound. Everyone happy, everyone together, I could recognize all of the precious voices. Oh, my... what a week I had!
