hello cabin in the mountains with all my parents, brothers and sisters and their kids {all 24 of us!}

hello cousins playing all day and all night

hello taking turns making meals and cleaning up the kitchen

hello blue skies and then thunderstorms

hello waterslides and splashing in the lake

hello not enough sleep and extra coffee

hello mud pies and sandy feet {and sandy clothes and sandy towels}

hello sunscreen and bug repellent

hello tag and hide-n-seek and bean bag toss

hello coming home to mounds of laundry

hello to a computer that won’t cooperate and a car in the shop

hello to catching up on email and phone messages

hello sweet memories and family time we’ll cherish

hello to our own beds and being home

hello monday! we’re tired but we’re ready!

what are you saying hello to today?
