July 4, 2005 weekend, Lilburn, GA. This
is our 7th annual sibling reunion, this year at Artie and Shirley's. Gretchen and Neal didn't come and were greatly
missed. Note the "missing man" formation in our sibling
portrait! Kori and Miranda came and spent a fun weekend with Victoria
and Elizabeth at Rob and Cathy's. Billy was home from Ft. Hood too so it
was a reunion all around. Everyone had a great time in the pool and loved the
dry ice -- an added feature. We had
a delicious dinner at The Village Corner German Restaurant, watched the
fireworks at Stone Mountain from a nearby church parking lot, went to a
wonderful holiday concert at Berean Baptist Church, visited Scott and Lisa's
to see their new volleyball court, watched some movies, and had a family
picnic followed by our own fireworks at Chez Lippert -- good thing
Scott's a fire fighter! It was a wonderful relaxing visit for all.
Miranda said it was the "best vacation I've ever had in my whole
life!" Ditto, Miranda!!
