The following photos are from a 2011 trip to Southern France I took with
my fiancee, Sara Ogiony, brother, Jamie, our sister's family,
Billy & Sherry, our father, Rootbeer and Joyce, and our brother Stefan and his daughter Lindsey.

Above are links to previous trips we've taken to southern France.

This year Sara and I spent most of our days at the pool trying to avoid
long drives to the surrounding towns, but we did make it to Aix, Marseille,
and Isle sur la Sorgue.

Rootbeer is my father

Billy is married to Sherry, who is Chris's sister.  Chris is my sister Jen's husband.  That makes Billy and me... nothing.

My brother and Tai

We were fortunate to have Yusef and LiLou cook dinners for us.

Sara loved all the natural herbs

Lavender was everywhere, so were the snails.
