June saw most of the kids and their families visiting for our annual family gathering. We had 17 of the 23 grandchildren here for a nice sunny day where the kiddos could swim and play together. The new baby was a big hit with everyone. It's been a while since we had a baby in the mix!Mom and big sister hovered while all the cousins had a chance to hold baby Martin. He laughed and smiled throughout.
The cousins always find a new game to test their skills against each other. The older teens are even challenging the uncles to arm wrestling matches. :) So far, the uncles prevail, but it won't be long!
The boys in their traditional pose. Getting a little gray around the edges, but still kids at heart.A week later, Ron's brother and his three grown children came for a sad occasion - their daughter and sister, Regina, died suddenly earlier this year and they came for the memorial service. We are all still in shock and sadness at her passing.
Meanwhile, our projects continue - extending the water line to our new building site is complete.
And June is only half over - definitely our busy season around here is in full swing.
