Family get-togethers can be tough.
We all live in different places,
so when we all get together,
We never have a big enough place to hold all of us.
Rather than overwhelming one person
by trying to have everyone stay at one person's house,
This year we tried something different.
We rented the entire facility at Beaver Lake Retreat.
It was great. The place was big enough.
We could all eat together,
enjoy the hot tub,
have a bonfire with s'mores,
watch the hummingbirds,
and still have a place
for everyone to sleep at night
without kids sleeping
across every feasible inch
of floor and couch space.
The adults could still stay up and chat. without fear of keeping the little ones up.
We all had a wonderful time.
