Ferns (and Family)

Each year my parents arrange a reunion for my father’s family.

At a local chalet, aunts, uncles, cousins, sisters, children, parents, and my grandfather gather to eat lobster, catch up, and roast marshmallows by the fire.

The day wouldn’t be complete without a walk to the river. The trail is bordered by lush green ferns.

And so this day was highlighted (for me) by ferns and family.

(Besides, I tend not to post photos of family on my blog, so fern photos were the next best thing – I was too busy eating the lobster to photograph it!)
