|Russ begins the Fourth celebrations by arriving on Friday!|
This was the only rain (and it was brief).
He had just had hip replacement surgery 5 days before.
It was another fantastic Fourth of July weekend. The largest attendance, 26 at top, for a very long time. The Garren Shay Pavlovic DeKrey (Heather, Scott, James, Morgen, Sean & Will), Wolf (Russ, Marty, Jenny, Julie & Molly), Bond D'Arpa (Debra & Dick), Silverstein (David, Leslie, Scott), Barns (Larry, Luke and Christine) families and David Wood were mostly all there. We all missed the Youmans as they were unable to attend due to Susan's illness. Leslie Smith & Rob Nichols joined us again. And Sean & Will had 6 friends come as well (Jesse, Sarah, Josh, Asaf, Sarah and Pepijn). Russ was a trooper, arriving only days after his surgery.
We had great food as always, water skiing, swimming, running, hiking and games. And wonderful times just sitting and talking - solving the problems of the world - or not! Until next year...
