Relax? Maybe Not At This Roadside Park!

 

Canyon-Falls-Roadside-Park

 

The sign on the side of the highway announces the much anticipated Roadside Park. Ten miles. Five miles. Finally. A little peace and quiet. Walk around a bit. Hey! There’s a playground at this one. Plus a visitor center. We hit the jackpot at this Rest Stop!

 

FAMILY VACATION! GOTTA’ LOVE THEM!

 

***So many hours driving through the relentless summertime traffic. Not to mention the construction. And that is before you even leave the city.

***So many hours listening to the chatter of little voices in the back seat. The metal toy car hitting your neck. Don’t worry. It’s ok.

***So many hours eating Cheetos and chocolate chips cookies from a Ziploc baggie. The M&M bag. Finished off that one.

***So many hours thinking about the so many hours that it will take to exercise away the quick fix energy treats. Just trying to stay awake and congenial at the same time.

***So many hours listening to music that you did not choose and would not ever, ever choose.  I know, I know…you can sing just like Bruno Mars. I heard you. Twelve long songs. And sure…you can shimmer and shake just like him. Really.

!

No matter what…family vacations are fun. And crazy. And busy. And tiring. And exciting. Twenty years from now…you will look at the pictures and remember only the best of the best moments. I think. I hope.
