Day 78 ~ Hooray for the In-Laws
|Kylie's parents are coming up on a pretty cool milestone in a few days... 30 years of marriage! It's a pretty big deal in these times, and we're proud of both Garry & Tina for their dedication, faithfulness and support they've shown each other and for the example they've set for Kylie & I. Tina has always wanted to go to the Grand Canyon, so Kylie and her brother Bryce (in the background in the photo above) got all stealthy and planned and paid for a trip for them to the Canyon (as I like to call it) for their anniversary.
Yep, they planned the itinerary, booked and paid for the airfare, hotels and car, and even contacted Garry & Tina's bosses to let them in on the game and schedule the time off... all without their mom and dad suspecting a thing. Pretty cool deal, isn't it?
Bryce has a MacBook, so we used video iChat to tell Kylie's parents the news. Ain't technology grand? Seriously, it really is an amazing thing that we could "be there" to tell them. Video conferencing is something I only saw when watching the Jetson's when I was a kid, and to think it's a relatively ubiquitous tool that anybody can use now is pretty spectacular. The photo above is from just after they found out.
Congratulations again, Garry and Tina! We love you and hope you have an amazing trip. Take a few pictures along the way, would ya?
