I can not begin to express how important and how enjoyable our family vacation was. I love this week every year when we all get together with a real purpose of spending quality time with family. Distractions (work...responsibilities) were kept to a minimum, and the kids had a great time. Justin makes a short video every year. This years video shows how much our vacation is about the little ones...and how that makes for a great time for all the adults. All families have different dynamics, but I highly recommend quality time far enough away from distractions...the beach works for us. Disregard the laugh at the end...Justin is playing a joke on his sister. The video tells the story much better than I can.

  1. Taking you advise and heading to the beach. Twenty seven brothers, sisters, cousins, being present in the moment and enjoying our time together. Nothing is more important than spending that time together. I even kidnapped Aunt Sue to go along. Life is good.

    Love the video--not sure Justin is going to like this year's Christmas gift from his sister....Bad, Bad, Bad.....and just when you think it's going to stop there's more....

    See you soon.
