Family Reunion and 50th Anniversary

My dad's parents (Grandma and Grandpa Hall to us kids) are having their 50th wedding anniversary this summer. Well, 50 years married is certainly nothing to sneeze at, so we celebrated with style. Family from both sides gathered at Camp Windemere for a weekend of fun, fellowship, and remember 50 years of God's faithfulness. They are certainly the best example one could hope for in grandparents, and I am thankful for the blessing that they have been in my life. We so enjoyed our time spent with family, especially with all the cousins - first cousins from Georgia and Minnesota, and second cousins from Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan.Because Mum offered to organize this whole event, we were both pretty busy, and didn't get a chance to take many pictures. But here are the few we took, and if you are really interested in seeing more, let me know. :)

Signing a contract for "50 more years". :)

You can't really see it, but my Uncle Pete has a banjo, and adding to that Karlee on the piano and Dad on the guitar, we had some pretty fun dancing music!

We did a Talent Show at the request of Grandma and Grandpa. This is Mum and all the younger kids, illustrating the recipe for 50 years of marriage. It was quite creative, and cute to see all the kids mime baking a cake!

The big cabin where we did meals and where the adults slept. Us kids had "bunk houses" down below. We all appreciated the air conditioning! I believe the boys' cabin had their thermostat set at 50 degrees all week. . .
