Family Reunion

So I had the chance to fly back to the midwest and get together with my parents, 6 brothers, 2 sisters and their families for a great big family reunion. We had it at a Kentucky State Park about an hour and a half south of where I grew up in Indiana...a place we went to as children for family vacations...Pennyrile. It was WONDERFUL! The weather was perfect...not overly humid or hot, and the reunion with family was great. Here's my daughter right in front of our lodge room. This was such a peaceful place. Funny enough, a regional SCBWI was being held for 2 of the days we were there. The small gathering of someday authors and illustrators was fun to see and chat with. On the planeride back (which was bumpier than I like), I drew this sketch inbetween working on some workbook illustrations which I need to finish up this week. Inspired by nostalgic memories.
