Family Reunion - Seeley Lake, Montana

Kenneth in the power chair that Roger brought for grandpa to use during the reunion. I posted the pictures before writing anything because I was not sure I could even get it done. There were lots of other pictures but I just put up a few of them. We enjoyed the trip a lot and our thanks go out to Kenneth for going with us. I could not have done it alone I know. We spent the first night at Dean & Laura's at Harpster. We enjoyed a wonderful visit and had some real good chicken enchiladas. We left the next morning after more visiting and got to Seeley Lake just before supper time. When we came home we drove it all at once because Kenneth had to be back for work on Monday morning. It took us a few days to recover, but we have more time than money so that's okay.

I'm SO glad that you were both able to go to the reunion. I'm sure it was just wonderful for Dad to be able to visit with his brother and sister again.

Looks like you all had a wonderful time. I'm so glad you got to go, and very glad Ken was able to take you folks up there.
