What a wonderful, wonderful vacation I had!My entire family got together. That would be, my mom, dad, OLDer brother, his daughter, my older sister, her husband and their daughter, and my younger brother and his wife. Plus Brian and my kids, of course. We gathered in the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee for a week. All fourteen of us in a cabin in the mountains to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. We laughed and ate and laughed and watched movies and laughed and hiked and laughed and went swimming and laughed and played games. And we laughed a little more. After listening to all the stories, my kids are convinced I had the.best.childhood.ever. (We didn't re-live the stories in which we nearly killed each other. haha!) It's true. I had great times as a kid. And getting together with everyone, re-telling the tales, and laughing until our stomachs hurt was a wonderful way to spend a week.Here we are: my parents, my siblings, and me.
