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.
And around the table they gathered.
Sharing memories from the past
And enjoying the present
Each Welker celebrating a milestone anniversary from 25 years to 40.
A good time was had by all, whether sitting on the front porch,
the back deck
or enjoying the sound of bagpipes.
They started out as four Welker kids in Olney, Illinois
Then grew to this
Producing them (you were missed Leann!)
And adding one more generation
Got them to this
One beautiful, happy, fun-loving family.
