The weekend is now officially over, so it's safe to say that everything went very smoothly. Everyone behaved and it was less chaotic this year, since we had a couple of out-of-the-house events planned.  It occurred to me that I didn't take one picture over the weekend, but others did, so I'm sure I can steal some of theirs to share.

Everyone left at the same time on Sunday and it was a hard adjustment to make.  For the first time since Thursday the house was quiet and empty.  Vance keeps asking where everyone went and when will they be coming back home.  It was too hard to hold back tears.  Yesterday was a gloomy day around here.

It's always sad to see everyone leave, but the realization that the weekend was over was even sadder.  Having everyone here as a group is something Justin and I look forward to every year. Words can't express what you each mean to us.  

Being so far away has made us really appreciate the time we do get to spend together. Thanks to everyone for making the trip up.  We had a wonderful time.
