  • My family of 27 ❤️
Parents married for over 50 years, 6 children spaced over almost 20 years, 13 grandchildren ... it’s a good GOOD  life when you have this much love and support , not to mention your own huge cheering section when you decide to do the 100ft jump at the @whitewatercenter (NOT me, but definitely my Dad!)
Happy Summertime ☀️
A special thanks to @taylormadison92 for the awesome pics!

  • Wouldn’t be a family reunion without a photo remake! Me and my sibs...
Swipe for the original version, date stamped exactly 40 years ago!  Ahhh the 70’s - above ground pool, tarp and rope shade,  and a keg under there somewhere 😉 We weren’t quite up to Brady Bunch status until a few years later, but hey, still fun!
Swipe again to see the current grandkid version (a few not present) surely to be remade 40 years from now ( 2058 whoa).
Happy Sunday ☀️

  • Back from family reunion today... wow what a week with all of the people I love!  Unintentionally took the time off from social media, no regrets, was SO good to be present in every moment☀️
However, now that I’m back,  I will be flooding your feed with pics ha ha!
