On this rainy day, I decided on a photo of toes and sand. I was sitting on a dune in Michigan with my sister (center) and my brother (right). I love our messy hair, striped t-shirts, big smiles, and bare feet. This was during a family vacation with some friends.
We had so much fun on this family vacation. In addition to visiting the dunes, we went on a tour of a Kellogg’s Cereal packaging plant. It was fascinating to see how that process works. We then went back to our friends’ house and created our own plant and enjoyed some free cereal samples.
Also on this trip, we went to have a meal in Canada. That was long before passports were needed for a quick trip across the border. We purchased some soft drink bottles while there. They looked so different and were cool souvenirs.
We were fortunate to have great family vacations. We regularly went to the family beach house, also went to visit family and friends across the country, and went on camping trips. Mom and Dad always made sure we had a great time. I have many fond memories of this vacations.
Now, Kirk, Ian, and I have enjoyed several fun vacations and the first of many camping trips. My favorite place to go with these two continues to be the beach house. They seem to have as much fun as I do.
Today I am thankful for:
- Memorable trips with my family
- Visiting my grandparents and other relatives
- Old family photos
- The sound of rain as I go to sleep
- A raincoat and umbrella on a rainy day
- Girls Night Out last night
- Laughter and stories with dear friends
- Walking in the rain
- Prayer support for a sick friend
- Friendships and family
- Love and compassion
- Weekend time to relax
I wonder what our Friday has in store for us? I know it will be rainy but warm. So it will be a good time to enjoy being home. I am so looking forward to that.
