Family reunion July 31 - Aug 3

We took another road trip to Pere Marquette Lodge in Grafton, IL for a family reunion with Emily's mom's side of the family.  This tradition started 27 years ago with Emily's grandfather Roger, his brother Owen, sister Ruth, and their children and grandchildren.  We've been meeting every 2-3 years since then, gathering from all over the country to be together for a few days in the summer.

Taking a break on our drive
Kate passed the time in the car with lots and lots of coloring!
Matt enjoyed some fishing
Grandpa and Isaac at the park
Kate organized the sugar packets while we waited for lunch
Aunt Karie and Isaac ready for a walk!
Smiling at Grandma
Fun at the pool
