One week ago today

Last Thursday we headed down to Gulf Shores, Alabama to spend the weekend celebrating Mom and Dad's 50th wedding anniversary. Mom and Dad rented a beach house and hosted all of their descendants for four days. It was lovely.

The house was ocean-front property, with its own swimming pool. The beaches were clean and sparsely populated. The house was open and airy, and the food was delicious. We brought board games and card games, kites, sand pails and shovels, and lots of books. There were 25 of us and we spent the entire time away from cell phones, computers, TVs, and DVDs. Most of the time was spent conversing, reminiscing, and playing together. Each night we had an hour of family devotions, led by my father. Everyone agreed it was the best vacation ever.
