Vacations, for me, aren't just about the places we go and the things we see. They are, in a big way, about the people I am with. Family vacations are the best kind of vacations, where we get to see loved ones that live too far away for frequent contact...and that is pretty much all of my family, except my husband and kids.

So, it was a REAL bummer that John wasn't able to be with us and participate in the week. We had a good time and it was fun, but it would have been so much MORE so if he had been there, too. He's out of the hospital now, hurrah, after a successful procedure yesterday to remove some of the problematic gallstones, enlarge the bile ducts and recover. He'll still have to have his gallbladder out in 4 weeks or so, but the 17-day hospital ordeal is at least over. And now we can start planning to get together again, this time for real...maybe at Christmas!

Love all the photos - I want more! Love, Lizardmom

What lovely pictures!

Thanks! :)

You have such a wonderful family :) Thanks for sharing the photos!
Glad to hear also that Jon is out of the hospital. Will he be able to stay home till his next surgery? Best of luck to him!

Thank you! He's home now, and as far as I know will be home until the surgery is scheduled :)

love the group shot!

I had to edit out a lot of evil laser eyes!

Wonderful images of a wonderful family. :-)

Thank you!

I love the pictures too! So beautiful. You guys are so blessed!

I am so happy that John has been sprung and is doing better. 17 days is a long, long time!

Re: From Megsie

We are, you're right! I'm glad we got so many good shots of everyone (except me, YIKES)

Re: From Megsie

I love that picture of is my favorite one! Along with the end family picture and the one of your two kids in the back seat... and Karin kissing her cousin...cutie...and, OH. You know. You are beautiful, lady!

The photos are beautiful and it looks like you're having a fun time, yay!

We did have a fun time, despite JOhn's hospital stay. :)

Will there be any long-term implications? Will they come back?


Yep, diet change for sure and gallbladder removal surgery in about a month

Well the gallbladder diet might be healthier for everyone, actually, if there is a positive side. Best luck to him as he recovers!
