Paice Family Get Together

For the past few years, the Paice side of my family has had an annual "get together" up at Camp Success. We don't really like to call it a reunion, as that implies that we have to actually organize some sort of activity. It is always very relaxing and very fun. This year we joked that there were more dogs than children. There are at least six dogs in the picture below and we were still missing two.
Here is the picture I took of everyone that was present. I used my ten second timer and couldn't believe how good this picture turned out. Some of us may not be smiling, but we at least had our eyes open. We were missing two of my uncles and a few cousins and spouses due to jobs and other obligations, but I still think we had a pretty decent turn out.

This is my Uncle George's family. Clearly, quite a few of his children, as well as his spouse, were not there this year. Many of them had just started new jobs and couldn't get the time off. :-(

This is my Aunt Gayle's family. She was missing one of her son's and his family. That's why I made it look like there was a hole there when I cropped the picture.

This is my Uncle Wayne's family. Two of his sons weren't present, but all of their grandkids were. Lucky Grandma and Grandpa! (Slight sarcasm is intended;-)

Here's my family's picture. I had to photoshop it a little to make mom smile and dad's smile look more like a smile instead of a grimace. But it all worked out in the end. One of these days, we're going to have to have a proper family picture.
And finally, here is the funny-face picture of the great grandkids (of my grandma and grandpa) who were there.
P.S. Uncle Frank, if you're reading this, it's been four years and my husband still hasn't met you... we need to come see you... definitely...

Indeed, Paice is an uncommon name. What are the names of your paternal grandfather and great grandfather? If you want to e-mail me, so we don't have to do this over the blog, my e-mail address is rchl_campbell@yahoo.com
