Grants Pass, Oregon

We spent the day yesterday rafting the Rogue River with 13 of our family members. There are 23 adults/teenagers total here and 2 little ones. This is Grandpa and Lane hanging out in the hotel watching cartoons:

Present in this reunion: family consisting of 4 sisters, 4 brother in laws, 13 next generation kids and 2 third generation represented here. We come from Tennessee, California, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon and New Mexico. We have family reunions every two years, alternating places with each sister.

Our oldest sister, Sara, who is no longer with us, has kids in Texas and Colorado, and we have a brother in law in ABQ, who couldn't make it this time. We miss them!

H & I ventured our for a 30 min. jog yesterday. I felt pretty good! Legs and body still a bit fatigues. We are planning a bike ride this afternoon..
