What a fun time we had! Being with my sibs is one of my favorite things. And having my kids (except for Gina, Joe and Manny) and grandchildren (except Laurencia) there was a bonus to boot. We did a lot of eating, talking and laughing. We missed my Dad but didn't dwell on it. We honored his memory throughout the weekend through conversation and during our Sunday morning worship service. What a man of God, my Dad.
Enjoy the pictures............

After it started to get dark, the bugs make it unpleasant to be outdoors. We came indoors so they could look around our house which was the Witmer Family Homestead many years ago. They enjoyed that.....lots of good memories are in this place.
Another Witmer Retreat is history. Precious times.
