The second leg of our trip brought us to North Carolina. Stephen's grandma has been asking us to come to the extended family reunion for years. This year, Dianne, Stephen's mom, planned our normal family vacation to be directly following the reunion and only two hours away so that I couldn't get out of it :P. The reunion was for Stephen's grandfather, Duren's family. Schroeder's first name is in honor of him.
I get the daughter-in-law of the year award because not only did I go to the reunion, but I allowed Dianne to dress my children in patriotic shirts that matched hers and Emmett's. You'll be able to spot my three little ones and there matching grandparents in the bright red.
