Smile.

We have become the people we mocked.

We lived in Arizona for a long time and every winter throngs of visitors would descend on the city and they'd go swimming. We thought it was much too cold to go swimming -- it was in the 60s or low 70s after all -- and we couldn't understand why any one would want to go swimming, swimming!, in December or January or February.

Then we moved to Chicago. In Chicago 70 degrees feels downright balmy. So we've been eating outside and playing cards outside and swimming -- and we're not laughing any more.

And speaking of laughing, this is Uncle Jason with two giggly little girls who decided that he would look fantastic wearing one of their headbands.

Uncle Jason is a really good sport, which is just one of the many reasons why we love him -- and swimming outside in December.

They both make us smile.

  2. Sounds like a wonderful vacation. Oh, and Kristi, don't feel bad....I think we all at one time become the people we mocked, especially in our youth!

    Happy New Year!
