The shots below were taken on Sunday, August 15, 1999, and it was Yvonne's first outing with the Degerberg "family." Everyone had a marvelous time, there was food and fun galore, and it was a perfect day in the Chicago Forest Preserves. As this is an older page, we're going for simplicity here rather than flash, so you're waiting for twelve (not very big) photos to load. Don't hesitate to drop Yvonne an email (von @ yvonnenavarro.com) if your name should be in the caption box next to one of these photos.
