Twentytwo years ago- All Because Two People Feel In Love

This is going to be a great weekend in the mountains. Twentytwo years ago we celebrated our first Russian family reunion. This weekend we gather again in the mountains, hoping for some good weather. I speant most of the night putting together a 20x30 family collage.  There are just so many great family photos, and trying to make sure no one has been left out with a family our size.  Family is coming as far as Germany and as close as Arizona. Close to 50 of us.  A big picnic is planned, food, softball, games, and family pictures. Everyone has rented cabins, and im very excited to see the 5,000 sq foot home we are sharing with my family and my brothers family. 14 of us in all. Sunday we'll have a brunch at our place. Checking off my to do list to make sure nothing is left behind. I volunteered to make the sign for our group photo and come up with a couple of games. The game thing not going so well. But have prizes for family traveling the furtherest, oldest family member, youngest family member, and family with the most members in attendance.  Also picked up a Pinata for the kiddies.  Lots going on, wishing for a huge success in loving memory of Mom and Dad. We love you now and forever!

  1. How very neat that you have family from all over coming for a reunion! Sounds like you will have a fun time! I know I wish I could spend some time in the cool weather and breathing in the mountain air!
