This past Saturday, my family had a picnic at a local lake. It was LOVELY!! My husband and oldest daughter went fishing. He didn't catch anything. However, she caught a turtle and several perch. My youngest played on the playground most of the time (and I missed photos of it...). There was nothing fancy or elaborate...just relaxing and fun.
What was truly amazing is that my entire side of the family gathered and there was not a single snide comment, or attempt to start an argument. (Who are these folks and what did they do with my family?)
My two brothers, who normally don't acknowledge one another sat by the lake for an hour or more...talking...to.each.other.
It was almost like we were...family.
