Critter and Varmint spent last week out west with their Dad…exploring Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone Park, and Grand Teton National Park. They hit four different states in the course of their travels, took over a thousand pictures, and wore their crocs out.
You know you’re walking a lot when you wear out a pair of non-biodegradable Crocs.
When they got home, Varmint couldn’t stop talking, she was so excited to share what she’d seen. Critter punched her, demanded the floor, and proceeded to tell the exact same stories, only with his funny perspective injected.
And when he finished he said, “Mom, it was awesome. But coming home is still the best part.”
I laughed and told him he didn’t have to say that to make me feel good.
He rolled his eyes and sighed, “Mom, I didn’t say it to make you feel good. If I wanted to make you feel good, I’d just tell you that I love you so much, no matter where I go.”
Welcome home, my son.
I love you too.
