“We should do this when your parents visit,” is a phrase that I’ve said to John for the last six years, which is the amount of time it’s been since his mother and father traveled to Vancouver from Iowa. My in-laws are incredible people who just happened to be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this […]
