Spent a couple days on Torch Lake with one of my best friends, Ben and his family a couple months back. His WHOLE family. Every year they choose a different place for their family reunion and this year their spot happened to be just a 45 minute drive from home for me, so I made the trip out to be the honorary third LeBlanc brother.
It was a great weekend filled with food, drink, fun and family. And, as with all the other times I've spent with them, they made me feel like part of theirs.
Got to be part of the themed dinners, the trips to local micro-brewery and even the family-first announcement of a new baby girl on the way. Pretty special. And to top it all off they let me bring my camera and have it trained on them all weekend. Made plenty of memories and took plenty of photos. Next year's reunion is already in the works, and whattaya know...they might just be doing it by me again next year. Can't wait.
