We spent the past weekend in the mountains with our parents and I was reminded once again how lucky we are that our parents enjoy spending time together. We were able to join them this weekend, but most weekends both sets of parents go up the mountain, my parents and Travis's parents eat dinner together without us! They both have cabins in Mi Wuk Village about a quarter of a mile apart on the same road. How lucky for us! If one cabin is full, we walk down to the other! We're planning on having Thanksgiving up there at my parents cabin, with Hayley, Mac, Laura, Ed, and Linda. I don't know that many people that can say they spend the holidays with both sets of parents. I know a few people that have to have two meals just to make both families happy, or split up the holidays because of distance or lack of time, and it always reminds me of how lucky I am that my in-laws and my parents are friends as well as family. So I just wanted to take a minute and give thanks for the family that I have and the opportunities we're giving to enjoy spending time with one another.
