Spending a weekend together with my kids AND my parents somewhere else was a first for all of us. I knew it was going to be an experiment but I wanted to try it.
And I am glad I did, even though there were some rocky bumps as is to be expected with five people - two almost teenagers who'd rather sit in front of their iPads than go hiking and can keep fighting forever, my dad who often finds fault with everything and almost never can show when he likes something, my mom and me who tend to get into silly arguments because we are similar yet so different.
But nevertheless it worked. We spent almost three days together and there were no major arguments and lots of great moments to remember.
