Mystic Birthday Reunion - Acadia 2014

May 29th, 2014 - June 9, 2014: Janet and I traveled to Mystic, CT for a Birthday Reunion party for Noah, 30 and George 60. Two great reasons to get together and celebrate. And a special thanks to Claudia who prepared all the great food and snacks. Then Noah proposed to Tammy and fortunately for him, she accepted! Victoria and Anthony, from Salt Lake City, were also able to join in the fun. Their mother Nada, Virginia's sister, very recently passed away from pancreatic cancer so it was good that they were able to set aside their loss for a bit while celebrating life with family and friends.

We then traveled up to Mt Desert island in Maine to see Acadia National Park for a few days. It was well worth the seven hour drive from Mystic.
