With Family and Friends the Fun Never Ends

Whether it involves a trip across the country, a walk down the street, or opening your own home to guests, visiting family and friends can be another kind of summer adventure. Sharing time, and experiences, and stories is  a great way to connect with others and broaden our own view of life.

The following stories can remind us of the power of these connections and hopefully bring to mind some of our own summer adventures…
