Friends and Family. It's so nice when these two elements of your life can combine so beautifully, and create an experience that no phone company calling plan can compete with. We invited our friends, Vegas and Malibu, and my Punkin invited her best friend, Bunny, to join our circus for a day out of town.

Our arrival at our first destination, my Aunt CC's house, erupted in a slurry of family photos. My cousin, whom I hadn't seen in years, and her young boys had been visiting for a few days. So our grandfather, who lives with our aunt, had the opportunity to have his picture taken with two of his grandchildren, and four of his greats. When the flashes faded away, we scurried to load up some folding chairs and an umbrella, so that we could get on our way to Wrightsville Beach.

It was still daylight when we left, but just barely. We still had a geocache to conquer before we hit the highway, and needed to try to get Bunny back at a decent hour. By the way, it was she who actually found the cache! Princess chose to stay with us for the ride home, and promptly crashed out during the drive. The two teens wished they had stayed with us because, from what I heard, Vegas and Malibu acted a little too much like an old married couple. You see, that's what happens when you spend a whole day with my children.

When your family feels more like your friends, and your friends have become a part of your family, it's not just a good day... it's a good life.
