"Shall we gather at the river....the beautiful, beautiful river......"
The Cowlitz River, full of glacier melt from the hot weather, runs along the front of David and Shannon's cabin at Packwood.  The kids rented extra cabins on either side and we had a splendid time.

At The Grove of the Patriarchs.  Missing in the picture are Kemp's family, Jacob's family and Ross.

On the front porch of the Gala Cabin with the flag that the kids made.

L to R: Phil & Joleen Harlan, Brooke, Ross, Ben, Joel, JoLin, Quinn, Bob, Judy, Shannon, David Kemp, Sonja, (coming down the stair on R) Benjamin, Kerry, Jay (on the left) Elissa, Libby, Natalie, and Grace Gala.

Jacob and Lisa had a prior engagement in Rexburg as they brought our first great grandchild into the world......Iris Rae, born July 3.

I've been checking the blog hoping you would share some of the photos from your time together. Thank you for posting them. What a neat looking family! I suspect there are fun memories to last for a little while - and then it will be time to do it again.

And by the way, congratulations on the upgrade in your status to great grandparents! That is really neat.

Thanks for sharing your family reunion with the rest of us. Wonderful to get together all at once. The pictures are very good.
