Tommy and I love Mammoth during the summer. We have gone every summer for the last 10 years. It's magic. Regardless of how excited we are to go, the beauty and experience always surpasses our expectations. Part of the goodness is how little we do when we are up there. We can EASILY walk (too short to describe as a hike) to a few gorgeous lakes. Judah loves to run on the shore and chase birds. We love watching him. We cook simple meals and sit on the deck soaking in the amazing view. That's it. Really. We nap when Judah naps. No Internet. No TV. Perfection.
I always think that Mammoth comes at the perfect time of year for us. That time when we NEED quality family time, to clear our heads, enjoy ourselves and just laugh. It's the time when we spend an hour discussing things like which characters on Gilligan's Island should have coupled up and why (we figured it ALL out, if you have any questions, please let me know). You know, the important stuff in life.
Despite our busy matchmaking schedule, we also have time to reflect and plan.
When we were driving home, I looked at Tommy and realized that I didn't have any questions left. It's the first time, in a very long time, I didn't. It's a good thing.
