Recollection of this Knuth Family Reunion event:
I was 10 years old when this photo was taken.  I remember everyone being busy, social.  Adults were jabbering and kids were playing.  It was a hot July or August day and all of the kids were swelting as they ran around.  The Matz family kids intelligence, my cousins,  were a revelation  Bill Matz was my approximate age but the girls, except Debbie Matz, were older and well schooled.  I remember telling one of the educated girls that I wished I had a cold shower - she told me it was better to have a warm shower because it would open your pores and your skin would cool you because moisture would evaporate better

As another aside, and at another time than the reunion: the cousins in the Matz family taught me some humility.   I remember frustrations when I talked Baseball (they did not know the terms) but then I remember embarrassment when the Matz cousins talked Tennis and I did not know the terms.  It was embarrassing
