I just got back from an incredible vacation – spent time in MN celebrating my in-law’s 60th Anniversary!

My hubby comes from a family of 11 kids, and all were gathered for this big event! Here’s a photo of all the kids in the family in birth order!

Here’s a group shot of ALMOST everyone who was there! There were over 92 of us gathered! Each sibling was assigned a shirt color, so in the photo below you can see who belongs to who. (Our oldest two kids couldn’t attend BOOHOO! We are family #7) It’s like the “Where’s Waldo” photo! LOL

This family is SO MUCH FUN!! This weekend went boating, fishing, played games, ate lots of GREAT FOOD, danced to a live band that was hired, played the newlywed game with Mom & Dad Heiling (you can imagine how that went with 11 kids! …..which kid did this and which kid did that…. LOL) The grand finale was sending off lighted lanterns like in the movie Tangled. Even that was an adventure as some “bum” lanterns were about to land in trees or the pontoon that was there!

I will cherish this weekend FOREVER!!!!10496142_1494882690747437_5572492081705638795_o
