My wife got to meet my Dad's side of the family for the first time this weekend. I have found that when I meet the families of friends or spouses I am often warned about this person or that person. I tried not to do that, and just let my wife form her own opinions. I think it went extremely well. My family really liked her, and she really liked them. We had a wonderful time playing cards eating breakfast, and just hanging out. It may have gone too well, as they claimed that they may get rid of me, and just keep her in the family.

I wish I could have spent more time visiting my family. I don't get to see them as much as I used to, as I get older it seems to get harder to just up and leave on a random weekend to visit friends and family that live out of town. I did manage to get all of their e-mail addresses, so that I can keep in touch better.
