Last week, over the fourth of July weekend, we all gathered at our new family lodge up in the Pennsylvania mountains to visit with each other, have some rest and recreation, and, as always, eat lots of good food. With twelve of us sleeping there, and numerous other relatives coming in for day visits, our bedrooms were fairly full and the place in general was full of life.

Over the five days and nights we were there, there was quite a bit of baby holding and tending. Somehow a newborn has the immediate ability to make himself the center of attention, as well he should be. Especially when he is just as cute and snuggly as little Gabriel is.
So what did we do for those five days and nights? We took some drives to look for wildlife, and for those left back at the lodge, well, there was a lot of baby holding.

As always, we enjoy our time together and all too soon, it's over and we head home our separate ways. With planning for the next gathering already in the works, I am satisfied with the pleasant time I had being with all my kiddos........
and giving plenty of Germall snuggles to this little guy.
It doesn't get much better than that, does it?
