Mom and Dad



They set a great example of generosity. Mom and Dad place such a high value on us all being together, and they help in whatever way they can so that our family can gather here.
It feels a bit odd this year, as they are staying in their place and we're camping out in a house a few blocks away. I guess we've grown up. About time.
My parents have established principals of 'family first' and demonstrate a commitment that my brother and I - and our families - will be blessed to emulate. Some folks think it odd that we choose to vacation every year with our parents.
I think it's cool.
