Welker Family Reunion

From Texas, Indiana and Ohio, they travelled to Springfield, Illinois.  It had been six years since some of them had been together.  It was time for a weekend all about family, food, laughter and fun.  5 dogs and 17 people made for a lot of great memories.

The heat index was over 100 degrees for most of the weekend, so the pool was a necessary activity…even the dogs needed a swim.

Don’t forget about the food…this family knows how to cook, so eating at all hours of the day was a given.

  1. I enjoyed viewing your pictures of the Welker Reunion. The Photography was great and you are sure to have many happy customers. It’s amazing how much your daughter looks like Jane. We missed all of the Welkers at the Ulrich Reunion and hope that some can attend the next one. If you are ever in the Kentucky Lakes area give us a call and stop by.
