I am so lucky. I have heard many horror stories about in-laws and I can honestly say that I love mine as much as my own family. They are awesome. And hilarious (mainly Zak's siblings-though when the snowflake sunglasses come out, all bets are off.). My mother/father in law are such incredible examples for us and for our kids. I miss them a lot. It was so great to be able to live close to them for a couple of years.
