Make Those Memories
Memories. Good memories. They've been flooding back this last couple weeks, first as I showed Julie from Oz some of my favorite places in Michigan, and then again yesterday as we took a backroad home from my niece's 4th of July picnic.
My folks never had a lot of money, they had a lot of kids, but somehow they conspired to give us camping vacations throughout the state of Michigan each year. Every 4th year or so, we would go on a BIG trip out-of-state. It took an amazing amount of planning, saving, and organizing, and my father bribing my mother as she didn't even really like camping, but wow, what fun we had.
And the memories are sweet decades later.
