When We Were Driving through the Desert the Other Day…

That’s a phrase we probably won’t be saying much later this year.  

When you realize that you will be leaving the desert for a while, all of the sudden you start to appreciate the cacti and the yellow flowers on the trees and how there are no lush, tall trees blocking your view of the bare, grassy, rocky, lonely hills that we refer to as mountains.

These are the things we thought about this morning while going on a drive with the kids. We like going on drives as a family. For Cameron and I, it’s a great time to sit and talk (and, believe me, we have much to talk about with moving our family along with two other families to the other side of the world). For the kids, it teaches them to enjoy the scenery and sometimes the destination.

Today, the destination was Canyon Lake–a scant 45 minutes from our house.

Now, I don’t know about you, but it’s difficult for e to see a large body of water like Canyon Lake and not want to jump in it…even when I didn’t bring a swimsuit…or a towel. But in the end, it’ always worth it.
