Danes Family Runion Pics.....finally!

Wow, time has flown by! We've had a busy, but fun time the past couple of weeks. (and we've been cool) :) I had a bunch of other pics & verbage about the past two weeks, and somehow just deleted it, so we'll just go with a few Danes Reunion pics for now:

Justin & Emily at "The Sandbar"

Rosie Vance & Emily - there's a reason it's called the Sandbar.....

Stephanie Basker pitching in with the work

Grandma Danes ready to spend at the auction

Jim did a great job as the auctioneer for the family auction - we raised over $7,500!

Calista Utter & Esther Manwaring

Everyone was so good to help with the work of cleaning up so we could check out of the lodge. But Calista stayed and helped us till the absolute bitter end. Thank you Calista! You're awesome!
It was a great reunion, and I'm so glad so many of you bloggers could come. It was great to see you all!

HOORAY! I have heard only amazing things about the reunion and I am so glad you guys had a fun time! You sure do know how to plan a big function!!

Abby Hiatt said...

Wow looks like you got alot of great pictures, I didn't get very many.

Michelle said...

You guys did an awesome job planning the reunion. It went great!

And what a nice budget for next year! :-) I will have to come up with some little boys quilts for the next auction. They seem to go really well, and lots of us have boys that will be ready for twin size quilts by then. Having all boys, I should be able to come up with some really cute ones!

Hooray Kathy! I'm so impressed you got pictures up! I'm sorry you deleted some of them though...wonder what happened? Anyway, you're awesome! Like Rachel said, all we have heard is great things about the reunion! Way to go.

Kathy said...

What happened with my other pics was that I thought my blog was getting too long, so I tried to copy & paste a bunch of stuff to another post, and somehow in trying to do that, I deleted them. No worries, though, I'll try to get another blog done in the next day or two, cuz we've had a lot of fun to blog about!

Stephanie said...

Why oh why did you post that picture of me?! I look like such a goof! :-) Well, I guess that was my intent when I posed like that.

But I agree with the others, you did a great job with planning the reunion, and we all had a great time!

I have heard so many good things about the reunion. The place you got sounds so cool. I would have loved to be there. Hopefully next time.
Great job pulling it all together.

Grandma Danes said...

It really was a great reunion. It is quite intimidating to look at all of you and remember when Grandpa and I just started out. We especially enjoyed the talent show and the karaoke. We have a lot of hams in our family and they can really produce. Thanks again for a great reunion

Ditto on all! Great reunion, great place, awesome people and food and tons of fun...what more could we ask for?!

I want to get copies of everyone's pictures...our camera wasn't ready for the big event. Can you believe it?!
