Ludtke Ludke Luedke Reunion 2012

this past weekend was the big family reunion in Sequim WA. We have them every 3 years alternating between Deming WA and Sequim. It's always a good time and always great to see everyone. Over 200 people showed up this year. We are all related by Marie and Albert Ludke who are my great grandparents. All of their kids have passed away and we are still keeping the tradition alive. My grandfather was the Fred Ludtke and he was their second born and he was the one who came over from Russia/Germany at the turn of the century and sent money back to get all of them here. One sisiter went to Brazil with some of Alberts relatives. I think they had 8 kids in all...
We missed the ferry by seconds so we had dinner while we waited for the ferry. Samantha went over early with Papa.
The twinks first ferry ride!

We went for a little drive to Dungeness Spit. We'll come back at a different time to explore a little longer! Beautiful!!
