This past weekend was a once in a lifetime experience.
The Pond family was ALL together in one place.
...for possibly the last time in forever.
Quinton, the oldest grandchild in Preston's family, received his mission call a few months ago and is headed to the Japan Tokyo South Mission in a few weeks. He had his farewell on Sunday, so everyone gathered to come and see him speak (his talk was amazing by the way and he is SO ready to go.)
The reason this may be the last time we are all together is because from here on out it seems as though a grandchild will be gone on a mission or away at college or be married with children.
So...this one was the one chance to get a large family picture of the original Nick and Janeen Pond posterity.
We hired Jeni Boston to do the job and I'm thinking the pictures will turn out great.
The location was so, so beautiful and the kids were in great spirits.
I haven't received Jeni's pictures just yet, but these are a few I snapped with my camera while we were there.
We were able to have an adult dinner and chat, while the kids were at another house eating pizza and playing the night away. It was a fun weekend reminiscing and being with family.
