Thankfully when I look back on Suhr Family vacations fun memories always come to mind. The earliest memory was probably around the time I was in kindergarden. We took a road trip out to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming with the 5 of us (Mom, Dad, Jason and Rob...oh and a never ending tape cassette of the Beach Boys). I laugh when I think back about the amount of patience Mom and Dad had taking an 8, 6, and 3 year old on a road trip!
Anyways, it is interesting how relationships change and develop over time. If you would have asked me when I was 18 who my ideal person to take a trip with I can definitely tell you it would not have been this person. I can tell you she felt exactly the same way! However, I have grown up (at least somewhat) and in a couple weeks my Mom and I will be traveling out to Seattle to visit relatives and just get away! I am extremely excited because over the past years my Mom and I have grown very close. I am so thankful for that relationship because she is the person I can tell all my secrets (sometimes to Dick's dismay), she makes me feel better when I am sad, and overall she is just fun to be around.
|Sorry Addison you can't come. Maybe in a couple years :)|
So Mom...when you read this (because I know you will)! This is my little way of saying, "sorry I was such a brat when I was 18" "you were right, I was wrong" and "we are going to have an AWESOME time in Seattle!"
