You know what? It was the best holiday.
Not one of those things mattered because what mattered the most was the people who were there with us.
I came home thinking that
God has given me the best
family in the world.
We laughed together, ate together, fished together and laughed some more.
We geocached, watched movies, did a puzzle and went for long walks. I watched my girls as they bonded with their friends and I tried my best to capture it all through my camera.
I loved watching my husband tease "the boys" and I got caught up with my sisters-in-law (they really are special ladies).
My nieces and nephews are just too fun for words...there was hardly a moment that we weren't entertained.
I marvelled as my parents opened their hearts (and their trailer) to all their granddaughters' friends. Their hospitality knows no bounds.
And my mother-in-law mothered them all,
as only she can do, with food, bandaids,
I've always known that's it's not what you do that is important but who you are with. And who I was with made my holiday perfect.
