Ruth and Jim Blanas hosted a wonderful family reunion this past weekend (Aug. 16, 2014) in an Allentown/Bethlehem area park with attendees coming from as far as Apopka, FL, Greenville, SC and Chicago. We got to meet new cousins, Navy Baumann and Caitlin Egan and the many other youngest generation. The newest member, who couldn’t make the trip, was born only 13 Aug 2014, Jeremiah McCord. He lives in Missouri with parents, Seth and Haley.
It was an active party with plenty of photos taken and available for viewing on Facebook. The boys ( ages 3-10) built a stone fort. I’m sure the park caretakers are enjoying that. They swings and merry-go-round got a good workout as well.
The day was beautifully, sunny with just enough breeze to keep bugs and heat away. Ruth must have sent a lot of prayers upstairs to get such a beautiful day. She certainly thought of everything to make it a perfect day. Let’s make this an annual event.
