As we bid our sad farewell to the magnificent scenery
deeply inhaled the fresh air
tilted our face to view the clear blue sky...
said a big thank you to the Pacific Northwest for being such a fabulous host
for showing my children all you have to offer....
dipped our toes one last time into the lake
returned the kayaks to the sandy shore...
motored our way via wave runner across the sparkly water...
circling a few times before docking
not wanting the ride to end...
As we shook off sandy towels
packed up our gear
drove back to my parent's house...
I love going home
I love seeing my children in their grandparent's home
I love seeing everyone gathered around their kitchen table
eagerly awaiting breakfast treats
with tousled bedhead
We didn't want our trip to end...
"see you soon"
"we will be back"
"come see us"
Thank you for everything!!!
saying goodbyes to my parent's, sister and her sweet family is always so hard!
We live so far away...
trips back home are never often enough!
As we buckled up
taxied down the runway
soared higher and higher
I felt such peace
so thankful for the love of family
This trip was just what I needed
what we needed
Here's to vacations, family, love, memories and coming home!
P.S. School supplies were quickly purchased
backpacks are somewhat ready
so we can enjoy the remain days of summer before the first school bell rings next week!
