Family Day Trip

Remember traveling for miles with siblings and passing the time by singing songs, playing games, and listening to books on tape? Family road trips, you got to love them... Yesterday my family and I made the 1 1/2 hour road trip to Shipshewana where we spent the day. Road trips in my family always include stopping for coffee and packing snacks such as crackers, cheese, chips, and chocolate. We barely roll out of Chesterton, before my sisters and I are munching on some of our goodies and asking mom and dad to put our Cd's in.

On the road...

We walked the rows and shopped the booths and

discovered that there is definitely not a shortage

of socks, sunglasses, 1000 count Egyptian sheets,

and soy candles that burn non-stop for 8 years!

We also enjoyed chasing down little Amish men

on their bikes and buggies...Lauren was quite

embarrassing sticking her head out of the vehicle

window and pointing her camera at this poor man...

On the way home, we again passed the time
with profitable things... I looked out the window
snapping pictures and trying to appreciate
nature while attempting to ignore my weird sisters!

"In truth a family is what you make it. It is made strong,
not by number of heads counted at the dinner table,
but by the rituals you help family members create,
by the memories you share, by the commitment of time,
caring, and love you show to one another, and by the
hopes for the future you have as individuals and as a unit."
