Um...thanks?

I know you’re sick of hearing about our trip to Colorado already. This should be the last post.

It’s one where we say “thank you” without really knowing how. The entire idea – coming to Colorado for a baby naming, the execution of the event – was my mom’s. She arranged the details with the Adventure Rabbi, she organized the yummy picnic post-event, she gathered the family, etc. We even stayed at their condo in Boulder and my parents moved out to a nearby hotel. But wait -- it gets even better. They rented baby equipment (crib, swing, etc.), which was set up and waiting for us upon arrival. Not to mention that they um, ‘helped’ with the flights, the rental car, and on and on.

How do you say “thank you” for such a gift – something that is so generous but also so meaningful? As a family, we will always remember the baby naming and the time together. We know my parents would poo-poo even the need for such formality or appreciation, but here it is…for the record at least.

We just got home from a Joan Baez concert in a beautiful setting in Boulder. Didn't think anything else could top my day until I read your thank you.
