Fourth and Family

I spent the holiday weekend with my mom's side of the family in Southern California.   Family time has been a rarity over the years.  With everyone's crazy work schedules and living situations, it's tough to get us all in one place.  This time we managed to get 9 out of 12 cousins, 2 aunts, 2 uncles, and 8 dogs together.  That is a lot of estrogen and canine.

There's really something special about being with your family.  You can let your guard down and just be you.  Seriously, like the day when you wake up and realize you only have two cents to your name, they're all you've got... and really all you need.
