Just a slight precursor, this wasn't meant to be a Friday post but alas here we are. Happy Friday!!!
We have been traveling to Peterborough for a number of years now to visit family. The last couple of years we have gone with friends and spent the weekend all together chasing our kids, eating some of the best food, drinking, playing, driving, antiquing, beach dwelling, water fighting, swinging, dancing, and laughing. Lots and LOTS of laughing. Did I say drinking?
I have to say the thing I enjoy most is watching the kids play together. Noting how much they've grown from the year prior. Knowing that they are making memories that they will remember when they are big. Hoping they are creating a space in their hearts for spending time with people they love. Feeling a warm fuzzy feeling when they think back to their childhoods and remember times when they felt that they were a part of something big - creating bonds and fostering relationships.
I can't wait to overhear a conversation between them when they are older like, "Remember when your parents brought you over and we would have water fights? And they started it?" OR "Remember when we had dance parties and they let us listen to completely inappropriate songs?"
Something like that anyway. Just know the smile will be so big on my face that people on the moon would be able to see it.
