Idyllwild is a place my family and I have been trying to get to for many years, a place in the mountains, not too far from home, where you can get a taste, just a taste, of the true season. It was a weekend of six kids happy to be playing outdoors no matter how cold it was. It was a weekend for six adults to relax, sleep in, overindulge in fresh bread (thanks Matt!) and coffee and doughnuts from town, and play hilarious games after the kids were sound asleep. It was a great way to ease into the full, crazed and sometimes tiring holiday prep that is now upon me.
Thanks friends. Thanks family.
