To the fun! We arrived in Bemidji last Wednesday, and our first order of business was gathering the family at Heather's 'house on the hill' for a night filled with yummy appetizers, free flowing beer and wine, Dave's Pizza, family memories, and Savanna's soon-to-be-famous whoopie pies.
Heather presented my parents with a beautiful photo album of their life together, here my brother Kelly and his son Kaleb and I reminisce:
The party ended with plenty of time for all of us to get a good night's sleep (well, except for Riley and Charlie, who I suspect stayed up far too late playing video games...).
Having discussed the rules and points system the previous evening, we met up at the Nymore landing on a gorgeous summer day to start the fun. If we had specially ordered the weather for the day, it could not have been more perfect-blue skies, a slight breeze to keep us cool, and enough sun to give those of us with very pale skin an amazing sunburn.
My dad was in heaven, the first time he has ever had the whole family, all together, out on the water doing the thing he loves best.
More anniversary posts to come!
