Back in the Hood

That's right, it's that time of year again. My FALLVORITE time of year. With the leaves turning colors, the crisp air, Pumpkin making everything better, it is time for the annual Moon Family Hood River trip! So here's the thing. The Moon's ( my dad, my mama, my brother, myself and my brother's new wife Summer) set out for Hood River this past Saturday. Not alot of sunshine, but no rain, Praise the Lord! The morning begins with coffee (standard) and continues with an hour long car ride where we chit chat and listen to the best of James Taylor, where we usually end up harmonizing like my sister in law said, "we are the VonTrap family." This trip has somehow turned into this annual harvest adventure that we all look forward to every year even though it's our own silly tradition. I suppose every family has em' so this is ours. The only way you are allowed to come is if you are by blood a Moon, or you are dating a Moon, or are of course married to one which Summer now is. This meant... Katie flew solo. Ordinarily I wouldn't care, but this year I think my dad and I came to a strong conclusion... we cannot beat Ben in the family football game unless there is another male thrown into the mix. No pressure right?! WRONG! Next year it's possible I may not be allowed to come unless I hold up my end of the bargain. We shall see I guess. Haha! With all that being said, it is fair to state that my brother who played on and off with my mom and his wife, outplayed me and my dad pretty much single handedly. He is a true athlete, I have to hand it to him. It really was a wonderful day of much needed family time, and when we got home that night we celebrated my Dad's birthday too. It was a Hood River trip to remember! Can't wait for when my brother and sister in law start having little babies that we can take with us. I am going to make the best Aunt everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Love and Family
