We spent the weekend at Indiana Dunes. The beach was wonderful - a lake so great that there were little waves and an undertow. And the kids had a great time.
One of our families brought matching dresses for the little girls and a coordinated dress for Julia and the other bigger girls. Too cute.
This is all of us, after swimming and dinner. We clean up rather well.
On Saturday night, right before bed, Julia went up to Tracy and crawled on her lap and gave her a big hug. Sweet, wonderful and unexpected.
Sunday morning breakfast with the kids all on one end. I think that Julia cut her pancakes. Whatever she did, she ate her whole breakfast and then had fun with kids.

One of the best treats of this reunion was the pillow pets that Petra's family gave to each of the girls. They found a dino-pillow pet for Julia. He was christened Duffy and he has been a fixture on any bed she has slept on.
