Back to Reality

July 9, 2007

Over the past week Micah and I went on vacation with my family. It was the first time in years that some of us have been together so it was very special. We picked up my little brother, mom & dad from the airport last Saturday. We then headed to the Corvette museum and Mammoth caves. The next day we drove back to our house to pick up enough food to feed a small army (i.e. my family). After loading our car to absolute maximum capacity we left for Natural Bridge where we rented a cabin. My brother and his family drove in from Maryland and met us there. We went hiking, swam in the pool, had a birthday party for the boys, grilled awesome food, and just celebrated being together again. It was probably the best vacation I’ve ever had, not because of where we were but who we were with. And since I can’t really find the words to express it here’s a picture montage…

Here’s pics of us just putting around the cabin.

The boys smoking cubans around the campfire.
I made little cakes for the adults to enjoy after we had the kids birthday party.

We grilled a 12lbs. salmon!

The pool at the resort was a huge hit.

The evening parade of matching pajamas…thanks Jen.

    Wow! It looks like you guys had a great time! I’m glad you had the opportunity to spend some QT with your family.

    Oh, and I’m ready for some grilled salmon….I know you have to have some leftovers from that huge fish!

    The sad part is we had 6lbs leftover and when it started to rain we forgot about it and left it outside all night…I know, I know, it hurts on so many levels.
