Oakes Reunion 2011

Most of the Oakes bunch gathered in Bemidji on the weekend of July 4th.  Okay, so I am a little slow in posting.  I would have sooner but I lost all but 2 of my photos of the whole weekend !#$%*(darn it).  I don't know how- they disappeared out of My Pictures folder and before I realized it I had erased my SD camera card to make more room on it. !#$%*(drat).  It was one of those very thistley moments. Grrrr.

Thankfully, some others took photos too, so thank you, Dave, for sending me yours!

We met the first evening at our house for fruit pizza, CHOCOLATE, visiting, card playing, and making reunion t-shirts!

Saturday morning some of us paddled the Schoolcraft River in canoes.  I had some great photos. Had. Grrr.  That afternoon we met at Oak Hills for more visiting, swimming, and a picnic.

Sunday we met for a Kentucky Fried lunch at Bryce and Heather's before heading downtown (in our reunion t-shirts) to watch the annual 4th of July parade in front of Chocolates Plus.  That is a great store by the way. :) 

Then that afternoon we all met at Chris and Janel's for more relaxing, visiting, swimming, good food, a bonfire and even some fireworks!  I am not sure why these next photos got so small and I can't fer the life of me figure out how to enlarge them.  Sorry.

It was a fun weekend with all those crazy Oakies and plans for the next one were already being made before we said goodbye.  The only thing that would have made the weekend better is if Mike and Julie and their boys could have been with us-- we missed them :(
