I thank God for family. We were able to visit with three family groups in one day! My Aunt Mary saw us off in the morning. We had lunch with my mom's cousins, Debi Martin-Beem, Jess and Robin Branam Beem, and a bunch of my second cousins including Julia Beem, Alicia Beem, and Carlina Beem. After exploring Mapleton, we drove out to have dinner with my second cousin on the Moore side, Jen Stahl. A full day bursting with fun!
Oh, and I met a third cousin twice removed in the afternoon! I hope I got that right.
