Here are some photos of the 2012 Nationwide Gwaltney Family Homecoming Festivities. To be honest, I didn't get to take a lot of photos this year as I was busy recording video and talking with people. But I do hope these photos bring back some memories of the wonderful time we had.
Ginny, Mitzi, Dr. Bill, and James Glenn had a good visit over at Pete and Susan's house on Sunday afternoon for cheesecake and other refreshments
It was great to visit with Carson, Chelsea, Maddison, Caleb, and Kimberly over at Pete and Susan's place. Susan prepared some delicious cheesecake and other refreshments.
