We spent spring break this year with two wonderful families. We went to Gatlinburg and rented a huge cabin with the Chile's and Adams' families. These are our neighbors and friends. This year, in particular, I was feeling very stressed with work and life in general, so this was a break that I really needed. We have never vacationed with friends like this before, so I was a little nervous about how it would go, but I needn't have been because we all had a great time! It was fun to have different personalities with us because it stretched us to do things (like hiking) that would never make the Berry list of things to do on vacation. The other benefit is that we never heard the kids say, "I'm bored!" With all of their friends along, they had plenty of opportunities for fun and there was always someone who wanted to jump in the hot tub, shoot some hoops, watch a movie, or play a game. It was just an all around good time!
