Five generations, and it all started 70 years ago when Grandma and Grandpa tied the knot in a small church in Wallowa, Oregon. Their lives have taken them from living in a logging camp as young parents, to Grandpa's days as a mechanic in both Oregon and Alaska, to working in a sawmill, to their many years as commercial fisherman aboard their boat the Anne Marie in Alaskan waters, to their retirement back in Oregon in the summers and snowbirding to California and Nevada in the winters. The stories those two can tell are endless and very interesting. 70 years is a milestone that most couples never reach. What an accomplishment and such a day to celebrate. Congratulations Grandma and Grandpa. We love you guys!

Here we are, the six Sannar kids, all together again for the first time in, I think, 7 years. Susan, Stacey, Me, Todd, Joshua, and Tommy. A bit of a rowdy bunch.
Todd started it. He always does! He's the bad one, it really was not my fault at all. No, Mom, really, he told me too....
