The Journey.

So, it's a 6 1/2 hour ride from my home to where I grew up.  Not a terrible ride, but not a fun distance either.

Everytime I do it, I just want to get it over with.  I've prided myself with cutting 15 minutes or so off the trip.

But having two kids along with us...well...they don't share the same focus.

It's been a good thing though.  Instead of wishing the day away, I have been enjoying the journey much more since we've had kids. 

It's farm country.  But a fab place to chat about what they're doing in the fields.  

And to talk about what that stinky smell is. 
 And why not capture some pictures of my kids in their mama made clothes?

 How about take the leisurely ferry across the lake? And capture her experiencing the excitement of a new adventure?

 Or how about pack a picnic and eat here?

 And how about a later stop at a trail head?  For a quick game of red light/green light, some flower picking and toad catching?


You read that right.  This girl is learning to slow down.  No time like the present to learn.


  1. Oh I am so happy to have been invited to join this journey it was incredible. I love seeing the smiling and sometimes frowning face of your children. What a true adventure this must have been. The destination would be like the icing on the cake.B

  2. Good for you, making the trip part of the journey. I've never been able to convince my husband that there's anything between the start and end point. It seems we're always rushing from one place to another. This trip looks like so much more fun!

  3. Hey You look great!! so does the family.. Yes, still trying to convince my husband the trip is a journey.. our trip to Canada takes 7 visit his family.. just have to roll with it..

  4. Yup - life is about the journey, not the destination! Enjoy, Jackie!

  5. This journey looks like it was fun! I bet the kids do make you slow down a bit and enjoy the ride and not just focus on getting to your destination. Adrian's face is so funny - something must have been really stinky!
