Every 2 years, since Arlington was 2 years old, we have gone with Mat's family to Lake Norman, North Carolina. The first time we went, there were 11 of us. This year our number topled 27 - all under one roof in one house. We always have a great time. All the cousins get a chance to be together. There are hours of swimming in the lake, boating, shopping, relaxing, game playing, and just general being together. I know we will look back on these days as some of our most treasured memories.
