Through the years we welcomed new spouses and then each of the children. Josh, Zoë, James and Jenny were the only ones there from the beginning. Now they are all adults and most of them come back each year along with their parents. Two of our original members were not with us this year. Susan Youmans passed away earlier this year after a long illness. We miss her so much and shared memories of her during the weekend. And David Wood had a car breakdown and had to cancel. As always we hiked, swam, ate (always too much - but it's SO good), played games and talked the nights away. These photos are just a glimpse into the weekend as I rarely think to take out the camera. Larry took the group photo above and it came out great.
