It was so great to see everyone and get to meet the new kids in the family and introduce Allie to everyone. Family is so important to me and I'm hoping we can get together regularly. I really want Allie to know her cousins just like I did when I was growing up. One of my college friends, Chris Swensen, also was able to attend the party. We hadn't seen each other in 15 years - which we believe is strange considering we still feel only 25 now!
Anyway, we had such a wonderful time playing games, eating good food and just hanging out together. Thanks to everyone for driving all the way they did to get together with their southern relatives. Next summer we can meet at somewhere more convenient for someone else. :-) I'd suggest Alabama, but I'm thinking it would be a lot smaller of a crowd.
P.S. Mom- we missed you and Bill. Let's start planning for next summer!!
