The Hegwood Clan

After Dan's dad, Alan, passed away we decided to fly out to Illinois to see his family and spend some time with them.  I wish we could have made it out before the sad event, but it just was not to be.

A long flight later we were in Chigaco, rented the car, and headed out to Morrison IL to stay with his Grandma Glenda.

     A day later we drove out to Peoria to see his Uncle John and his cousins and second cousins.

After that, his Aunt Mel and Uncle Kurt came to stay with Glenda as well.

I am so glad that Liam got this chance to meet his Dad's side of the family and I enjoyed meeting them as well.  Now I see where Dan gets a lot of his personality from, and I was glad to have the chance to see these people he talks about so often.
