A few weeks ago, my family spent a weekend at a friend's lakehouse in Tennessee. Sounds like a fairly normal thing, but it can be quite a feat to get my family together, with us scattered in France, Tennessee, Georgia and California. Unfortunately, my sister and her family in California couldn't make it, but everyone else was there! We had a great time swimming in the scummy lake, grilling out, and we also managed to break a couch and a bed. What can I say, we like to have fun.
