To celebrate this momentous occasion, the whole family spent a week in the beautiful mountains near Gatlinburg, Tennessee.  What a wonderful time we had together…all 19 of us in one house for a whole week!  Here are a few photographic highlights:  Photobucket 

 The house was amazing inside and out with spectacular views from the deck and a REALLY steep driveway!!

Mostly, it was a wonderful time spent with all the people I love most!

  3. *what* are you all doing in that next to the bottom picture? The best I can figure is that you have frogs under the cups and are watching to see which cup hops away first…

    : )

    when I get our schedule I will email you so we can see if/where we can meet up again. And yes, thanks, I'll do the driving this time. : P

  5. My sister Jen lives right close to Gatlinburg, and my husband and I spent our first anniversary in a cabin in Gatlinburg this past Spring similar to the one you guys did, so looking through your neat pics makes me miss that area and reminds me of the sweet time we had there together and with my family (jen, geoff and her 204 kids). I'm so glad you guys got to have such a neat time out there.. and congrats to (I think you said it was your) parents on 50 years!! That's truly amazing and wonderful! 🙂
