Cummins Family 4th of July, 2004

Most of these pictures were taken over the 4th of July weekend at our lake place at the Athens Boat Club in Dawson County north of Atlanta on Lake Lanier.  A few were taken at our lake place  the week before. 

We all had a great time.  Amy, Paul and Caroline (9 months old now) were with us almost the entire weekend.  Amy's cousin, Bob Vance and his wife, Angela and their boys, Gavin and Parker spent most of the weekend with us Also.  Amy's Grandmother, Margaret and cousin, Christian, from Sevierville were with us most of the weekend also. 

Our son, John, was there all weekend.  His children (our Grandchildren), Heather and Jase were there part of the time.  Heather brought her fianc, Adam, along for the ride.  Jase brought his really good friend, Jamie, for a day.  Of course, our daughter, Cheryl Dorfeld and her husband, Dan, and their children, David and Jennifer were there the entire time since they are members of the club and have their own cottage there.

My brother, Ed, and his wife Maxine, and their daughter, Elise Price, and her husband Rick, and their daughters, Laura and Sarah have their own places at the club and were their all weekend to round out a really big family gathering.

In addition to all of the Independence Day doings, the 4th is Betsy's birthday so we had a big birthday party on Sunday.  Only our daughter, Charlotte, and grandson, Bill, and our son-in-law, Chip, from Statesboro were missing.

Thanks to Paul for most of these pictures.  They are not presented in any particular order.  Some have captions and some not.

We have some more pictures on film that we will add when we get them developed. Also.. if anyone else has some pictures that they would like to include on this page, send them to me.  I can also scan photos and will return them undamaged.

You not only sound funny, you look funny...!

I don't know whether these are carrots or sweet potatoes.  They taste the same when they come out of these little jars.
