We (the kids and I) are gearing up to intentionally travel east to the hot and humid state of Missouri to visit family and friends. When I was a kid, our family headed west about this time each summer in search of the great Rocky Mountains, cooler weather and pine trees. Occasionally, we would spot a Colorado license plate heading east, and every time, I would say "you're going the wrong way! ". Now I find myself in the same situation, only this time, I'm in the Colorado car heading east. Now I know what those crazy people were willing to go east for: family, relationships, time by the pool, late nights with Aunt, Uncle, cousins and Grandpa.
Can't wait to hit the road and go east!
