And We're Off!

"When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money." ~Susan Heller [can I hear a big 'amen?!]

We're on our way to Denver for the Mason family reunion. Mark's parents are the only ones still in that area, but since they don't travel much anymore, all of us [not even sure how many there are at this point, but it's a lot] are heading there to be together for a few days. People are coming from Chicago, Dallas, Austin, several points in Missouri, several Utah locations and probably more that I've lost track of. At any rate, it will be a fun time of getting together with our buddies Seth & Sarah, Mark & Amber, Rosie & Jarom, and so many others. Of course, Chris, Natalie and the kiddoes are going, as well as Chris, Tara and their boys. Math won't be there -- he's not only working but in school at this point and we will miss him. [and he's the designated care-taker of Vida, Maya's fish!]

We'll be back Sunday night with lots of good stories about how great everyone looks, how Casa Bonita is still the same [or better!] after all these years, and what a wonderful time we had with family.

Because that's all that really matters.
