2021 Veerman Family Reunion in Pigeon Forge

 Every few years, the Veerman family gathers somewhere for a family reunion. This is a reunion of my dad (Paul) and his siblings, their spouses, their kids (my cousins) and all of our spouses and kids. This year was our biggest one yet, with 49 people together in one house! The "palace" in Pigeon Forge was great for our group, because staying all together in one house meant lots of chances for fun, memories and conversations. We played games, did outings in the local area, ate great food and made memories together. It was so fun and I feel so blessed to be a part of such a great family. I was also, however, relieved for it to wrap up, because our family played a key role in planning the event! But it meant a lot to have helped make it all possible.

Here are a few photo highlights!
