You probably have experienced something similar to this quote "The days go by slowly, but the months and years seem to travel at light speed”.
Welcome to my life – sometimes the day-in, day-out routine, although rewarding in many ways, can get to be exactly that…routine. I work my 6 days a week, take Sunday off as my family and faith day, and then start the whole process again on Monday.
All of the sudden a month has gone by. Winter turns to spring, then summer, then autumn, and then another year has passed.
But there is one exception to this and that is when we are on summer holidays. It is then that the days just go by way too fast. Here’s what happens.
It all starts off with planning that one special week in summer where we do our family camping get away with Jared and Tianna. We get busy getting the RV ready, the boat ready, and all the packing done. Then it is the 7 hour trek to Banks Lake by the Grand Coolee Dam. It all starts off with a quick stop at Costco for supplies, then the factory outlet mall for more supplies (really?), an overnighter at the quaint Bavarian town of Leavenworth including bratwurst for supper. Then we wake up early the next morning and within a few hours – Are we there yet? – and the answer is yes, we have arrived!
Once there, we get the trailer set up, put the boat in the water, and then the fun begins…wake boarding, skiing, bare footing, air chairing, and wake surfing. Then it’s on to BBQs, campfires, stories, games, reading, and even a mid-day snooze. Repeat daily, and before you know it, the pace slows down, tension disappears, and laughter abounds.
Just as we are getting into the groove, it’s over and we are packing up…really??? That went by so quick. Who said the days go by slowly???
The take away from the summer get away is a few more stories to tell, a few cuts, scrapes, sunburns, wake board and water skiing crashes, a few more aches and pains, and so many more memories stock piled into all of our memory banks. Life Is Good!
Wishing you an awesome memory filled summer!
