Yesterday as we drove out to Harrison Lake with our little picnic I had a bit of a sudden memory flood.
I started to chuckle and then asked my beloved if anything about what we were about to do seemed familiar to him.
When we were a young couple raising our little boys. .
we often planned camping trips or day trips with our friends.
I never quite got why on occasion my parents would suddenly be there. .
just for a bit.
Yesterday. . .we were my parents. . just for a bit.
It is so fun .. .seeing your kids have fun, whether they be 1 2 or 30.
I get it now.
We watched the dad's build huge water reservoirs .. .
and then we watched the whole row of kids. . .
stand firm in their footing when the dam gave way.
The dad's rebuilt. .
and the kids patiently waited for the dam destruction once again.
We had of course eaten our little picnic first at the other end of the strip ..
and then watched as they at their picnic. .
and then we left them to continue on with their friends. .
and we happily went back to our spot on the beach to wait for our own friends.
