Sadly, this special tradition is coming to a close. In one year three family members will be at college. The year after that another three will leave, and there would only be one kid left. We decided that we wanted to end well, on a high note, and not make something last just "because". We may still do things together, but not as a whole group. This does not mark the end of vacations. This marks the end of vacation as we've known it, and the start of new, different kinds of adventures.
Is there such a thing as too many pictures? No, I don't think so. But, having so many pictures does make it quite hard to choose which ones to share with you! I'll share a few of my favorites from this year...
