Near the end of June we had a family reunion for my mom's side of the family - the Janzen's. My cousin, who lives in our neighborhood hosted the party and she, Arthur and I planned it. We wanted some traditional Mennonite input, so Arthur made roll kuchen at our house on the morning of the party. That was a high-light for some people!

Mom shared some stories of what she remembered and then everyone contributed their memories too. It was a lot of fun!
Arthur and I were in charge of decorations so right before the start, I quickly carved a watermelon in commemoration of the great event!
