Marsh Lake 2008

Every year Ryan's entire family, his mom and dad, all six siblings, spouses and children go to Marsh Lake for the family campout. There's something like 45 of us. It's a riot. Ry's parents have done this for 40 some odd years. This is where Ryan proposed to me. I had to gut my first fish to prove my worthiness that year. But it was so worth it. It was a great year and tender as none of us thought Ry's mom would be with us again this year. But she was a great camper even feeling so icky. I love this place. There is a spirit here that I love to feel when I'm there. I can focus, re-group for the next school year and spend time with my brothers and sisters-in-law. I love playing with my nieces and nephews too. And yes, Marsh really is as beautiful as this picture.

That is so sad that Ryan couldn't make it! I know how he looks forward to that trip. Yay for driving the Motorhome. You are so cool. I remember you telling me the story of your nephew bringing you that ring. Such fun memories!
