|My 97 year old grandmother and I.|
I am thankful to see her again,
always in good spirits.
Family reunion time! The Hess family reunion in rural Pennsylvania is always a highlight for me, even if the last one I went to was six years ago. I flew up to Maryland on Thursday evening with my 11 year old daughter, who is leaving for San Francisco with my mother and my niece this Tuesday.
Here are some picture highlights of our weekend. There are many more on Facebook.
|Here's the clan!|
|My Aunt Faye helped introduce me to Jesus |
at the 1976 Hess reunion.
I am forever grateful.
|Aunt Kathy has brought along |
birdhouses for people to paint,
and uses her bullhorn to give instructions.
She's a hilarious lady
and I'm glad she's my aunt.
|My daughter made this one for|
her great grandmother.
Thankful for her creativity and generosity!
|Sunday breakfast near our hotel -- |
my grandmother with four of her five children.
|Back in Maryland again, |
my niece and my daughter
refill my grandmother's bird feeder
outside her window.
|And my nephew sets out a |
mineral lick to attract deer.
|This visitor isn't exactly a deer.|
It's a ground hog.
