Dad's Birthday and Reunion Memories

Today is Dad's birthday - a celebration that started this family reunion business back in 2010, which was the 100th anniversary of his birth.  I'm filled with gratitude for several things this day as I think about my Dad and look at all the pictures taken during our family reunion last week.

Thank you to  Zeke, AnnMarie and Kennedy for their warm and welcoming hospitality!  Their lovely home became home base for meals, hiking and fishing plans, and all water sports!  

Thank you Karen, for organizing the sleeping arrangements and planning the meals, and encouraging the hikes, bike rides, and trips to the Secret Pond.

Thank you, Allan, for joining us this year and generating lots of great conversation and discussions.

Thank you, Paul and Maureen, for making this weekend a priority.  Your children delighted us and we hope this annual event is enough to keep them connected to the Kopczynski relatives in Idaho!
Thank you, Marilyn, for making it down to the beach this year!

Thank you, Connie, for sweeping the floor!

Thank you, Dale, for making this picture possible!  We wouldn't have made it without your scouting, encouragement to go just a little further, and help scrambling up the boulders!
Thanks, Jeremy and Amanda, for giving us the opportunity to surprise you with books for your baby, and the joy of learning what to do with breast pads!
Thank you, Dad, for all the sacrifices you made to start this big family over 65 years ago!
