Our Memorial Day weekend away use to include sleeping bags, bathing suits, fishing rods, and a change of clothing. Now it includes those same things plus a little extra like diapers, crayons, movies, snacks, snacks and more snacks, and lots of clothing and shoes. So when we think about a long trip north it takes us a while to make that decision. In the end it is well worth the company, laughter and memories with cousins. Plus, Brook and I actually have some sort of communication while stuck in a van for 7 hours. It also gives us a break from the work around the house that never seems to end. We bring back a a reminder to slow down and enjoy life.
Enjoy these next three month of summer! Bask in the sun, eat pops on the porch, get wet in the sprinkler, and just have some fun!
