My parents were vacationing with my Aunt Gayle and Uncle Bob at their house in West Virginia, and my aunt suggested driving down before them to surprise my mom for her birthday (even though it was also my aunt’s birthday! Which helped throw off my mom). Steve, Amy, and I totally pulled it off, and we all had so much fun playing golf at their resort, playing jenga, hanging out with my cousin and their dog Willie, and boating on the lake. Although our boat almost went under due to a “dip in the lake” aka- going full speed over a wake, we all survived and had a blast. Also, we saw a bear cub and tried to find the mama.
