Getting them all together in one place at one time is such a blessing.
This year's weekend Kesterfest was held at a lovely VRBO vineyard property
in North Carolina that not only accommodated us with enough spread out sleeping space, but also offered an array of activities for all.
Like rock wall jumping
and ziplining into the pond
and water trampoline flips
and kayak tug of wars
and skeet shooting,
and hanging out with the ever changing matchups of best buddies
and a bit of just plain hanging out, funny story telling and lots of laughter.
Always lots of laughter.
The daughter and daughters-in-laws cooked up some fabulous meals, the nighttime bonfires roared, the secret walled garden was discovered and enjoyed by many,
everyone's kiddos became everyone else's kiddos and Fritz and I loved watching every moment of it.
Time is the best gift of all.
