June 11, 2016 – About a month ago my father and girlfriend exchanged a brief conversation about family. My dad told her how he has been thinking about our family for a long while. My brother and I have both reached that point in our lives where all that talk about being an adult is no longer something we are waiting for to happen. We now live very busy lives and our family has been spending less and less time together.
Well, this sparked enough motivation from my girlfriend to propose a family picnic. For a solid month my girlfriend, brother, and I planned to have the family gather for a barbecue at Lake Johanna as a surprise for my parents. The event turned to a solid day filled with swimming, barbecue, geocaching, and games. It couldn’t have been a more perfect day.
