I know it's been a while since my last post!
Uncle Jack reminded me that May 18th was the last time
I had blogged and he's right!!
So Uncle Jack... this is for you!

We returned from Michigan this week.
Initially we went for a family reunion
but we ended up staying for 2 weeks!!
Kurt was raised in Michigan and left for California
when he was 11 years old. So naturally, he was excited to
share a little bit of his youth with his own children.
I have lots of pictures to share from our Michigan adventures
but this post is primarily about the
Dulzo/Bretz Family Reunion.

The last reunion took place 8 years ago.
Jack and Cassie were 4 & 6 years old
and don't remember a whole lot
about their earlier trip to Michigan.
Lynne, Kim and Suzanne organized the events
and did a fabulous job creating a perfect picnic at the park,
including the weather!!
We had a great time seeing Kurt's family
and introducing the kids to their Michigan cousins.

Besides reminiscing old stories and visiting with loved ones,
there was lots to do and see.

And of course posing for family photos!!

My favorite part of the whole day was watching my kids
bonding with their cousins.
It was the perfect Bretz Moment!!
