My father-in-law's birthday was last weekend, and to celebrate, we along with the rest of his kids got together and spent the weekend with him. I always love going back home (Juliette and I are from neighboring towns) not only for the memories and the people and the natural beauty, but also because the kids love it so much. On Saturday morning the whole family took a walk along the beach near Juliette's parents' house, and Jason had a ball running up and down the sand, throwing a ball for my in-laws' dog, picking up rocks, and doing all the other things you'd expect a kid to do on a Big Sur beach. The whole weekend was just about perfect--the only bad part was having to say goodbye after it was over.
Here's wishing you all a great weekend surrounded by family.
