A couple days after our return, we had a Fennema family reunion in Breckenridge. We have gathered together every summer (at least most of them) for years and often it’s been in Michigan or somewhere in the midwest. This year, the family came out to Colorado and we were thrilled! We had a pretty wonderful turnout of 25 people, I believe, although we failed to get a complete group picture!
Pictures always tell the story much better than my words do, but suffice it to say, we had a great time! We did a variety of activities – hike, frisbee, 14er, ukulele playing, hot tub, sitting in the freezing cold creek, games, etc. We always enjoy the evening meal together as a group. It was wonderful!
I spent much of the first morning sleeping – jet lag is no joke! – but a bunch of folks went to play frisbee golf nearby.
That afternoon I took Micah for a hike – I had thought it was a short one, but it ended up taking much of that afternoon – and met up with other members of the family who had left a little earlier than we had. It was beautiful and Micah-the-hike-ah was a treat – no complaints, even when it rained on us!
The second day a big group hiked Mt. Quandary, the 14er nearby. Unfortunately, I didn’t get much sleep that night, so I had to forego it. But I am happy to say that the hikers all had a wonderful time. Also, my dad and uncle summited – how cool are they??
That same day, some others of us went for a different hike. It was beautiful!
The final day we all enjoyed some “trail mix” – such a clever idea! The music was beautiful and it was especially fun to hike a little ways before enjoying it. =)
And sometimes our pictures just don’t fit into a nice, neat category:
Thanks, Grandpa, for a fantastic weekend! It was a blast!
