July 19-26, 2014

This is the 28th year these Alexander ancesters were together for a week's reunion and it gets better and bigger every year. First timers were Dave and Cindy Wyant who loved it and say they are coming back next year. There were 47 here and two extra cottages were rented. These are Dave's pictures of this happy week.

So many loving and beautiful people.

The day starts with fixing your own breakfast anytime you get up. One morning was extra exciting with Kim being surprised by Grant with an engagement ring.
We get pretty crazy about this third generation of nieces and nephews watching them grow from childhood to such nice young men and women.
Donny and Ricky married adorable girls, Rene' and Marianne married great guys. Sharing this with us was special.

I feel so blessed to be part of this beautiful loving family and grateful to God for our loving Christian parents who started it. For us to spend this one week a year together is such a treat. I don't have pictures of the fun stuff others did but I hope you all enjoyed the week as much as I did.
