Friday evening was the start of a weekend family reunion in celebration of Gretel's college graduation! Mom and I (Manda) flew down to Virginia and were picked up by the big black Suburban that Two Bad rented for the weekend. You might be thinking that such a rig is a bit excessive, but we filled every seat by the time Aunt Ruth and Uncle Mike arrived! I am still trying to decide if we looked like a special government vehicle or a clown car when 8 people climbed out of the thing.
Anyway, Hansel and Gretel's weekend off the Trail gave them plenty of time to reflect on their journey, share some stories, enjoy motivational speeches given at various graduation ceremonies, eat delicious meals, and relish some quality family time. The next few posts will include some of the events, conversations, and reflections that took place along with a few pictures of course!
