Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world.

We're off on our annual Sunvriver Family Vacation. Both Steve's family and my family get together in two houses and just RELAX! Most days you'll catch us waking up earlier than usual to about 32-40 degree temps and keeping warm by bundling up and drinking coffee out on the porch while trying to catch sight of some early morning visitors like coyotes, deer, raccoons and chipmunks. Then it's off for golfing or a leasurely bike ride around the trails...maybe out to the stables or the airport. Then we head to The Village for some shopping or an icecream or yet more coffee and then to the pool. By this time it's probably reached around 100 degrees and the pool will keep us entertained for some time. We head back home for a nap and then another bike ride or walks or outdoor games like badminton or horseshoes or tossing the football around and then we shower up and head to one or the other house for dinner and drinks and hot tubbing and playing board games long past the children fall asleep - which they do...with no trouble whatsoever because they are completely wiped out. We finally all fall into bed and wake the next morning to start it all over again. It is my favorite time of the year.
