Birthday/Reunion Location is Secure!

We've secured a couple shelters for our reunion at Deep Run park just outside of Richmond. Here's a site with some information and photos:!mediatours&parentid=1149192664985

The park is really easy to get to. It's right off I-64. Here's a map:
Deep Run Park
9900 Ridgefield Pkwy, Richmond, VA
(804) 261-8230
Link: <,+va&sll=35.1395,-77.70574&sspn=0.312197,0.571289&ie=UTF8&ll=37.64115,-77.593346&spn=0.075577,0.142822&z=13&iwloc=A>

If you haven't rsvp'd, please do. It looks like we'll have a great turn out. We'll also mail paper invitations with details and directions, so be looking for them over the new couple of weeks.

We look forward to see everyone in August.

Keep in thoughts...

my mom as she travels to Alaska today. Evidentally, her only brother is not doing well at all. He had surgery on his back about a month ago and has never properly recovered. He is now in ICU and they cannot figure out what is wrong with him. His wife has multiple scoloresis and cannot comprehend all that is being told. So, the drs told mom that she should come up there. They do have 2 sons (my and Connies ages), that are there. Let me know is anyone wants her cell phone number, just email me. She is in Norfolk now and going through Cincinatti and then onto Alaska.
Thanks in advance for the thoughts....

PS.... this is the 100th post!! Way to go family... love keeping in touch!

Birthday/Reunion Party!

Thought I would post Pat's e-mail up here just in case someone missed it... More info to come soon!

Dear Goodwin Clan,

There are five cousins turning FORTY this year, Antonio, Brad, Mike, Drew, and Connie, which translates into "must have big party." The final details are still being worked out but the plan is to have a family reunion/birthday celebration at Deep Run Park in Richmond, Va on Saturday August 2nd. The birthday cousins are excited about the prospect of having the biggest birthday party ever, so please put it on your calendars now! We'd like to see as many of the family as possible!

This is just the first of I'm sure many emails, and we're trying to gauge how many people might attend. So, please reply back if you're interested, and let anyone without e-mail (there are still a few) know about the plan. I'm in the process of reserving a picnic area at the park this week.

Oh, I saw this picture (attached) which helped inspire the idea. I thought it would be fun to take the picture again 30+ years later.

We hope to see everyone this summer!

Patrick (and Sarah)

Cal Ripken, Jr. and Kelly

I recently attended a luncheon with Cal Ripken, Jr., formerly with the Baltimore Orioles (but you all should already know that LOL!)

Okay, I didn't actually attend with him but I was able to speak with him at a reception beforehand.

He was really funny and joked with me a lot about the O's and raising kids.

After the lunch we spoke again and he graciously signed lots of things for my boys that they had given to me that morning!

Hope you all are doing well and I can't wait to
see some of you over the summer. Love Kelly

GO O's !!!
