"Scenery is beautiful, wish you were here." So goes the typical postcard sent from a fabulous vacation. It was true of the vacation we just completed. Twenty-seven cousins and spouses from ten states gathered in Minnesota for a once-every-four-years reunion, and we had a blast! ("Wish you were here" to all the cousins who could not make it this time. Hope to see you all at the next one.)

Looking forward to 2014!
