Forester/Forrester reunion

Our main mission of our westbound trip was a wonderful, long overdue get together with some of our Forester family.  Yes, some spell it Forrester. I even found it was Forest in some ancestry notes.  Anyway, several of those cousins out in Nevada found that Tana and I were planning a trip to the Tahoe area just for fun and a visit with cousin Greg.  Seems they had been discussing having a reunion and invited us to Wendell Forrester’s ranch near Yerington, NV for a great time!  Wendell Forrester, Woodie Otto, Dick and Greg Pyatt, and all their significant others and gosh, many more were such wonderful hosts!  The food was great, the accommodations perfect, and the fun and laughter not to be topped.  Thanks to all that came and especially the hospitality.  I hope we can do it again sometime.

So, pictures…
