I have decided to update my blog and fill in where I left off. So the Moenkhaus Family had a reunion in Gatlinburg TN, and boy was it wonderful! My grandparents like to gather the family together every couple of years so we can all see each other.They rented a huge mansion cabin that housed all 18 of us comfortably.We had such a great time. My whole family was there including some of the kids that I have not seen in years. I also enjoyed seeing our kids (AKA: Gabi and Christian) meeting and playing with our little cousins whom they may or may not have remembered. Ron and I loved the nature trails and exploring the mountains. We tried very hard not to fall for the ultra touristy stuff. Then on the last day of the scheduled vacation Ron and I took a short drive to North Carolina to see the Biltmore Estate. We were in love with North Carolina from mile marker number 1. It was such a beautiful mountain drive and the Estate was unbeliveable! It took us 3 hours to walk all the way through the house and that wasn't the whole house! It was just the part they let you see! Then we walked in the gardens for hours with our shoes off and talked like we did when we first dated. We had such a wonderful vacation, One that was needed very much.
