Playing Catch-up

Hello, Blogland! It's been a while.

To catch up:

Pete came home from the Jamboree with lots of new friends, great memories and dirty laundry.

We took the teenagers on their first college tour- Union College in Schenectady, NY.
The last stop on the tour was the Nott Memorial, where the Unity Quilt panels are hanging from the balcony. We were excited to see our family block in the lower left corner of this panel.

We attended my family reunion in Albany, New York.
Since we had to contribute something crafty, Julia and I made a dozen Italian-themed centerpieces. The white flowers with text are photocopied pages of Pinocchio, in Italian, of course. The containers are parmesan cheese shakers that I picked up at Michael's for $1 each.

Here's my family- about 120 of us!

We celebrated my niece Debbie's birthday on Lake George in the Adirondacks.
The kids (including my husband) jumped off this 50 foot cliff into the lake.
OK, it was only about 12-15 feet, but from the top it felt a lot higher.

Our last adventure of the weekend was a rafting trip on the Sacandaga River with Bill's nephew David as our guide. Doesn't he look like Tarzan?

It was an amazing family-filled, fun-filled long weekend.
