On this day we took a drive through the canyon. The music slightly on, the windows down drawing in the brisk fall air. Wyatt and our niece Neriah laughing in the backseat while my little sister and I talked about life.
I grew up with a ton of sisters and we were always close but then I got married, had a kid and we don’t see each other has much as we like. So when I get together with one of them we always have some type of adventure.
My little sister Breanne is one of those rare souls who understands the deep meaning of life and each time we get together I pour out my soul to her and she always knows what to say and how to improve any issues. This day was no different.
I talked about how I felt like my life was moving fast and she talked about I could slow it down. She paid close attention to Wyatt and showed him how the leaves float in the water and how to properly throw rocks in the lake.
She admired the scenery with me and talked about how gorgeous the world could be if we only let it just be that way. We would jump in the car and drive to new location laughing along the way.
We found hidden trails, lakes, bugs and made leaf bouquets. We walked for miles, talked for what seemed like days all the while the morning turned into the afternoon.
As our legs tired from all the hiking we left finding a small cafe to fill our tummy's and reflect on the day.
Not only was this day about having a fall adventure it was more about freshening the bond with my sister and I feel like we did just that.Tweet
