The Cooper 50th Wedding Anniversary - Raystown Lake, PA

This past weekend I was blessed to fly to Pennsylvania to join in the celebration of my aunt and uncle's golden anniversary. There were over sixty family members attending including many of my aunts, uncles and cousins who I had not seen in twenty years. It was a very happy and special reunion with them all. I will be posting more a lot pictures later more later.

This morning we are up bright and early to get on the road to Corry, PA near Lake Erie.

Having a fun motorcycle ride with Uncle LeErin!

Little Sycamore Canyon Hike
Yesterday after getting off work (Short Fridays) I joined Abby, Michael, baby Kate, Jeri, Chrystal and Paul for a nice hike. We drove over to Laguna Coast Wilderness Park to hike in Little Sycamore Canyon. It was cloudy but not too cold. The trail took us by Barbara Lake and up to the top of a hill with a spectacular view. It was nice to hang out and enjoy the afternoon with friends. Baby Kate is getting bigger and bigger every time I see her. Up at the top of the hill Abby fed her some yummy squash and cereal. After we got back we drove to Fountain Valley to have dinner with the Henigmans. It was good to see them again! We had dinner and then enjoyed talking and playing the piano. It was a fun fellowship time.

Today was the twentieth day in a row with lower than average temperatures. June gloom is in full bloom! I am beginning to think that this is the year that forgot summer. I miss the warm sun!! Regardless of the lack of warm weather and sunny days I am trying to make the most of it.
Last Friday the whole "gang" came up for the weekend. It is always fun to have everyone around. After a late lunch at Margie's favorite restaurant, Chick-fil-A we all headed up the hill for a nice walk and fun evening together. The highlight of the day was Margie losing her first front tooth. She is getting so big!
Saturday was a lazy day. Our original plan was to go to the beach but since the weather was not cooperating we had to change the plan. So David, Timothy and Jon went for a bike ride, Aunt Sara took Christine and Abby to a play, and the rest of the girls ran a couple of errands at the mall and browsed a couple stores in downtown Fullerton. We ended the evening with a yummy barbecue at Grace and Jon's. Sunday we all went to church and then enjoyed lunch together at Soup Plantation. Mom, Christine and Abby stayed on since they are on their way to Pennsylvania for the summer. They were up bright and early (5 AM) to get ready to go to the airport. I will be flying out there too soon. I'm really looking forward to it =)
