On the August long weekend we went to Shuswap for a family gathering with the Stobbes. Eleven of the twelve great-grandchildren were there (with another one on the way) and Rachael was the second oldest - the youngest was a week and a half old! Here they all are with Oma and Opa.
We slept in a very small motel room. It had a double bed with a single bunk bed above it. The girls both wanted to sleep there so they squished it out for a few nights. Besides, it's way more fun sleeping together on a bunk bed!
Rachael hit it off great with her second-cousins Abby and Tim. You'd have thought they played together all the time!
And Kaitlyn found a friend her age - Tim's sister Meghan.
We went to the beach a couple of times and had yummy ice cream! And we had campfires and roasted lots of marshmallows! We had a fun weekend. Almost everyone was able to come.
We hope to see everyone again at the wedding at Christmas!
