Reunion, relatives and relaxation

Two weekends ago Kent and I and Ken’s sister LeAnn and her husband Ken all flew to Grand Junction, Colorado for a first cousin reunion. The location was picked because one of Kent’s uncles lives there and his adult children are in that area. Uncle Marlo has a beautiful ranch house that allowed plenty of room for all of us to have dinners together. Here is their sign at the end of their road.

His sons, also first cousins own several hotels and gave us all a really good deal on our rooms. That made it really possible to come.

This is Kent’s dad’s side of the family. There were 44 of us all together for the weekend. Several of dad’s brothers and sisters were also there. So it was a fun to connect with many relatives all at the same place. Kent had one cousin come up and say that she had not seen him in 49 years… That was fun to get to know her better and her husband.

 

I think the fun thing was that we all had grown up kids now and so could concentrate on the adult conversations. We did hikes, other activities and walked around the town as our hotel is on the main street of Grand Junction.  It was tons of fun!!! and I am not even related to any of them except through marriage but I enjoyed them all too.

Another great gift to Kent and I was that Kara, our daughter and Nick her husband drove out from Denver for the event too. What a treat as we have not seen her since she became pregnant… So seeing her and Nick was a special gift!! She looks so good…check her out for yourself. It was so fun to hang out one day with Kara.
