Oh, actually seeing a bear? Sorry, buddy! Will a T-Rex do?
We DID see family. Lots & lots of family. Lots of family I've never met before and whose names I had a hard time remembering. Have I mentioned that I'm not the most social of creatures?
But we also got to see Family, and that was priceless.
Of course, no Xxxx family get together is complete without a little drama.
Don't we all look HAPPY?
No parental units were pushed. Promise.
But even despite the pits, there can be cherry pie.
Like quiet afternoons by the river
And newfound long lost 5th cousins.
And brothers and sisters.
And wild flowers.
What's all this have to do with Down syndrome, you ask? Didn't I announce 31 for 21 only yesterday?
Nothing. And every
thing. Joy in unexpected
places, in family.
