Natural Vacation Yellowstone Again

Merry vacation memories....of beautiful places.
Thanks to darling daughter for taking such great pictures to share this summer.

My sister Renae @simple sequins wrote about our brother M, that has recently left us to go to Heaven...
He was generally very good natured.... but 

once in a while when as children, our family was packing up to go on a travel....he would start saying

 "I'm not going" or "I'm not go'na go."

We would beg, bargain, barter and blunder our way with him...until he finally just got into the car because everyone else was in the car  and ready to go.

Vacations remind me of him...hahahhahaahhehhhee, you ask, how is that a related attitude?

I get the same feelings---a little fear of the unknown...
when it's time to pack I pack and think...oh, is this going to be great or not.  I am going to have a fun time?
....but I go on the vacation,
love it...
I love to get home again, too.

I love the pictures to show for it.

He loved it, too, once he was out and going.

Ha!...what kids!

Merry vacation memories, Mary

  15. Hi Mary,
    That's really funny about your brother doing that as a kid. cute! I remember going to Yellowstone as a kid, but I don't recall it being this beautiful. Maybe I didn't see all of it...I really only remember Old Faithful.

    Have a good week!
