Family Reunion Pictures

After driving over 3,000 miles and traveling through eleven different states, we arrived home on Saturday from my Grandma Nadzieja's 90th birthday celebration in Pennsylvania. Over sixty of her relatives reunited to celebrate, including people from Canada, Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Colorado, Louisiana, Tennessee, Arkansas, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. All ten of my parent's grandchildren were in the same place at the same time for the first time.

(Noah is smiling because he has gum on his teeth. He looks like he is saying: "Cheese Gromit!")

My favorite pics are not the ones with all grins, but the ones where only some are smiling and most are arranging themselves, elbowing someone, making funny movements or faces, and generally not acknowledging the camera. Group shots of kids are no easy task! :)

Great pics,
Melissa (partyof5)

Okay...I just have to say this: THAT IS THE MOST AWESOME TREE HOUSE I'VE EVER SEEN!!! You think he'd come build me one? :D

Hi Susan! It is a WONDERFUL treehouse! I'm in therapy, because he never built me one when I was a kid. ;-) He is here in CO this week for a funeral, and he did some handyman things around my house. I told him that I wanted him to stay for two weeks to do more, but my mom has her own list of things for him. :-) You'll have to get in line. Don't hold your breath ~ ha ha!
