(Thursday June 26, 2014)
happened that sisters Virginia (Giny), Kathy and cousin Barbara all
decided to visit this week. Kathy's grandson's wedding is Saturday, and
Virginia came for the get-together. Barbara just wanted to see everyone

Checking out all the work Lisa's been doing to get

It's been wonderful to all get together at the old

home. Virginia heads to Salem, Oregon, Kathy to Bonner's Ferry, Idaho
and Barbara to Baltimore, Maryland. But before they leave...Thank you so much Lisa for all your
efforts making the occasion so special. And thanks to Laci for bringing
her Aunts for the occasion.

children have been seeing some sights locally and at Lake Tahoe after
bringing her for the reunion. From the left: Sue, Angela, Andrew,
Andrea and Barbara.
Mike even made it for breakfast.
Had to add this photo of the beautiful big trees

relive the good ol' days. Thanks so much Angela for helping to make it
possible. You have two very sweet children who reflect the goodness of
