This is the view that greeted us when we arrived at our cabin yesterday afternoon. Pam just had to have iced coffee.
This morning, it's still beautiful, and my coffee is hot.
We had the day to ourselves, the two of us. We went out to dinner at the same Mexican joint we went to on the same arrival night last year. Then we bought groceries and came back home. All the while we were getting text updates from Jon and Kaitlin, keeping us updated on how many times Jackson had vomited in the car...four. They finally rolled in around 11:00 last night. Two birds in the nest.
Patrick, Sarah and Oliver are in route at this hour and should arrive in a couple of hours.
It is impossible to explain just how happy it makes me to be able to do this for my kids. Words are insufficient. We only all get to be together in the same place and time a few times a year. So these times are precious. Many words and pictures will follow here in the coming days. I will do so not for you, but for me, so that I can look back and remember it all in a few months and years when these times might become even more rare.
But for now, all I care about is breakfast burritos which I believe are on this morning's menu.
