Family Gathering

We had our second annual "Treasure Hunt in the Maze" for the grandchildren on Sunday.   While we didn't have all of our 20 grandchildren attending this year, we did pretty well with 15.  Even though they range in age from 4 months to 17 years, all of them enjoy wandering in the woods around our house.  Ron keeps the trails mowed on most of the acreage.  The oldest grandchildren have helped to trim the once planned Christmas tree farm into a maze on part of the property.  So we have a "big maze" and a "little maze" and once a year, Ron and I gather Dollar Store treasures and hide them through both mazes for the children to find.

I managed to leave my camera behind when we scoured the maze for treasure, but I did get some pictures of the participants.  In oldest to youngest order:
Michaela
Kyrie
Rebekah
Bethany
Charlize

Virginia
