Hart Reunion July 6th 2009

As I was contemplating the journal aspect of the Hart reunion, it occurred to me that I could not do only one post about this event. Because each day is one! There were over 200 pictures taken just from my camera alone on this day. We started by heading to a place to swim, Store Gulch. This happens to be my favorite place to bask, sunbathe, and swim/float ( I am my own personal buoy) and enjoy the sounds of happy children splashing about. The Illinois Valley river is full of places to indulge oneself in swimming. We look forward to doing this activity a few times while we are here every year. After taking in a full day of play, it continued. The ever so anticipated Bingo night. All the families bring their goodies for giveaways (especially Grandpa and Grandma Hart) and fill tables to overflowing. The kids, okay and even adults, take great measures to see what they maybe able to win. I was so excited to BINGO a pair of comfy pajamas:) This first picture summarizes a fun filled day, and just so happens to be my favorite picture of the whole reunion. What amazes me about the Hart reunion is how devoted we all are to making sure we can come. It is an anticipated every year event, of the kind to not be disappointed. What started out as mainly the siblings and a few spouses, with beginnings of children. Has evolved to grandchildren and great grandchildren. We even enjoy the "friends" and added family that come to enjoy in the festivities. With the Harts...the more the merrier!

Ok that last photo is the very best. Where on earth did you get those mermaid outfits? Darling! I thought it was you and Kelcie at first until I took a closer look. Looks like you are having way too much fun. Now come it on home sister so we can do lunch!
