I didn’t go away this holiday season. I didn’t fly out of out town, go to the beach, sit by the ocean, or travel to an exotic city. Instead I stayed at home in Vancouver. My parents flew up from Tampa to spend the 2 weeks with my sister, Jeff, and I. For 2009 I have to say that since my trip to Israel it was by far the best vacation I had in 2009. It was relaxing, fun, restful, full of laughter, walking, reading, and watching movies. The best part was having my family by my side each day. Thanks for coming North Mom and Dad!!
