Family Fun in NC (Bonclarken)

"How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!" Psalm 133:1

Our family reunion (my Dad's side of the family) is an annual event that in recent years has been at the Bonclarken Retreat Center. There is a lot to do there from fishing, swimming, volleyball, playground, etc. and of course, the Leslie's make their own fun by adding in a 5K race, BBQ dinner, white elephant gift exchange, ghost stories by the bonfire, and the usual porch rocking chair discussions.

The town of Hendersonville has a lot of neat stores and museums. We went to the Mast General Store which is a family favorite, and the gem & mineral museum. We also took the boys on a "Bear Hunt" through the town. 

Playing with cousins...

Mama just loves babies. These are cousin Chris's twins Dorsey & Jesse.

Cousin Mary (holding Dorsey) was a flower girl in our wedding almost 13 years ago (that makes me feel so old)!

Cousin Joe (holding Jesse) is Mary's brother who I taught how to ride a bike when he was 5 years old. Now he's a triathlete! That was some good training (lol!).

The paddle-boat seats were so hot we burned our buns! 

 Getting ready for the 5K....
