Family Reunion

This last weekend we met up with the Nies side of the family at Lake of the Woods (although i believe it could be renamed Lake of the Mosquitoes) for the Nies Family Reunion.
It was awfully warm, and the mosquitoes were flying like madness, and Mason was still a little sick.
But we had a pretty good time!
The car drive up was a little rough, however the drive home went much smoother (both Henry and Mason snoozed for 3 hours straight)
It was really fun watching Campbell run around after "the cousins" and Mason was everyone's sweetheart. I had my best ever game at Settlers (sorry Jess and Sam) and the food was great, great, great (Donna, you still owe me a brie). I had a lot of smores. I love smores.
It was a really great time, and has sprung the camping bug in Sam. We've now planned 3 more camping trips (although we won't be staying in a snazzy cabin for these trips!)
Looking forward to the next reunion, in cooler Fort Bragg.
awesome hair.
Sam was up in the loft (which was the height of Campbell)

I love the ones of Campbell and Mason on the tree! The one of Paul and Mason is hilarious! And Fort Bragg is a GREAT spot for a family reunion, Crater Lake's blue notwithstanding.
