WISH YOU WERE HERE
When you live this far apart from your loved ones, time together is never long enough, even when some days together it feels like it. I would like another couple of weeks together just to RELAX, without plans, without parties, without anything but time to sit together, talk more deeply about our lives, get to know my niece and nephews better, give my children more time with their grandma, their uncle, their aunt, their cousins. Time to do all the family things together that we so rarely get to do with each other: play games, go shopping, eat meals, hang out on the deck, watch movies, smile, joke, talk, laugh and laugh some more. I really hope that we can make it happen sooner the next time. Not seeing my family for years at a time is HARD.

These pictures tell of a lovely holiday spent with family. Special mention of the picture of the two little 'uns on the red couch with a crochet blanket. It should be made into a poster - it's so cheerful and bright!

That is my favorite photo too!

What great snapshots! I can't imagine being so far away from my family, and yours looks FUN! I am so happy for you that you had a great trip and had time and so many people were around for you to see!

xo

these pics ooze love and fun!

Ha, ha ... love the last one - that looks like the sort of photo our family takes as well.

What a beautiful tribute to your family. That photo of you and Karin is especially lovely.

I agree that it's hard to find that time to connect on a deeper level when you have just a few short weeks together. So much else gets in the way. Where is that teleport machine when you need it?

I love all the photos - such good memories - but, you're right about not enough time -and not enough time to really talk about everything! I plan to be in Europe next year!

How old are all the kids? I am curious what Karin and one of John's boys and your mom are all doing in that one pic with their mouths open.

I think they were looking at themselves in the viewfinder of the camera :)

Martin is 18.5 (turning 19 in December)
Danely (Rachel) is 17.5 (turning 18 in December)
Karin just turned 17
Bryce is 14
Sammy just turned 5
Jakob is 2.5
