Travel: A 4th of July Family Gathering

A 4th of July Family Gathering

What a busy, crazy, wonderful, amazing, fabulous get together!  We were 17 for the holiday and 25 for the 5th.  There was so much love and laughter, perfect weather, tons of chatter, great food, libations and lots of memories.

Little Gracie and Amelia were the youngest and John’s folks were the oldest.  We came from California, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Illinois and Wisconsin.

There was plenty of room on the lake (the water was warm and relatively calm). The boat was quite popular with the young and old alike.   The back yard was busy with conversations and the house was a buzz until late at night.

Here are some of our favorite photos.  Enjoy and let us know what you think!

Much love to all!  J&J
