Family Picnic

Every year Mike and I host the family picnic/reunion in Vernonia, but because of conflicts, my sister Laurie and her husband Arnold agreed to host at their new home in Winlock. There were over 50 of us. There were aunts and uncles on my mother's side, and cousins on my fathers side. I don't get to see these cousins very often, so it was great for them to come, and wonderful that Laurie agree to be hostess. Mike and I brought the chicken and table service, and everyone brought salads and desserts. What a great picnic!

I took many photos and included a few for you all to see.

Stewart and Stacey came and Stacey got to meet the family for the first time.
