It's the top of August long weekend here, and that means we're taking our annual retreat to Longbow Lake with our family. I'm so lucky to have an entire family in law that I get along with so well, including sister & brother in laws that act more like friends, a bunch of sweet funny kids that never tick you off, and some pretty fun in laws. I couldn't have wished for a better family to marry into. Growing up, all my cousins were adults by the time I was born, so I never had that built in family kind of friendship. It makes me so happy to see Luke and Eve grow up in this big family. It's one of the reasons why we haven't moved away for more adventurous digs. Family is so important and we're lucky to have it, so we're making the most of it.
