We drove all the way down to visit my parents, sister and her family.
We've been fishing, searching streams for frogs and crawdads, shooting bb guns (a talent my oldest didn't realize he had), shooting bows and arrows, playing board games, playing at parks, reading and watching movies. Good food. Good company. This small town and these people...it has all been good for our souls.
My dad even cleaned out my car for me yesterday. He had to use one of those hand held power saws to cut out the tootsie rolls that had melted and harden on to our carpet. I love my dad.
There is just no one else in the world like family and I can't wait to come back.
"So eat up all the tootsie rolls you want in our car, boys. We will just drive down and see Papa."
