my dad's cousins have a camp in new hampshire that has been in the family since the 1920's. it's a special spot that used to be the location of many family gatherings. my dad and his cousins organized a little dodd reunion, so we headed over there for the weekend. we determined that i hadn't been there in 22 years! so many of my second cousins were new friends for me, but there were also some familiar faces with my dad's sister and her kids coming up from connecticut. it was a wonderful day of reconnecting, feasting, swimming & boating. what a treat.
