There is something so memorable about spending long holidays with family and friends and even more so when family from out of town flies in for the occasion.  After five days of enjoying just that, and one sad, early morning trip to the airport, I was looking forward to sitting down last night to go through all of the photos captured since they arrived.  Here are just a few of my favorites.
