Do you have any memories? I mean, everybody does have MEMORIES, but some are different than others.
Of course you remember your best friend's birthday party, or you trip to Disney World, or you grandfather's funeral...but how about the little things?
Making a fort outside with my dad. Liam's neighbor's roof, where we'd go and bounce on the mini trampoline. Ozzy's backyard, when I went swimming in some of Morgan's clothes because I didn't have a bathing suit. Playing school with my teddy bear.
Playing kickball with everybody from the church. Sitting out of the rock at my aunt's house. Meeting Krista. Swimming across a lake with Zach and this one dude named RJ. Shannon getting Corrina's boot out of the mud in my backyard. (Remember that, Shan?)
Jessica claiming we were going to die when we were crossing a frozen lake. Blogging from the Superbowl this year. The boys adoption day, when we got to be on TV and I hugged them so hard when they were finally adopted. Spinning around in the Campbell's backyard with Shannon and Tim.
Brian dumping syrup all over Sam while I was filming. Playing endless rounds of four square. My crazy go-to-sleep-fast acrobatics that actually DO work. Doing a little Chabigail movie with all my best friends (this was before I was also best friends with Krista) and Shannon making endless outtakes.
Watching Yellow Submarine at Corrina's birthday party. Taking five months to read the book Little Women. Going to the mall with Krista and Amber on Mother's Day. Doing a "car wash" with Aidan one summer and not really washing the cars, but getting ourselves soaked. Waking up early to go on vacation. Flying to Florida when I was six.
Setting Zach's mother's car alarm off at a cookout. My first time at youth group. Orientation Day for my maybe-new-school, that is, if we don't move by then. Going to concerts in Sturbridge. Eating s'mores outside. Going for boat rides at my mom's cousin Bo's house.
All these little memories make me happy. Just little things that I like to remember. When I was little, it was more just the crazier things that made me smile. Now, it's the things that I'm used to, well, maybe not the one about us breaking into Dottie's car. (Although that is one of my more funny ones, because it scared US to death, let alone everybody else there)
Do you have any little memories that make you smile? I like the little things better than the bigger ones. Because, even though I will always love and remember Disney World, I like to remember the plane ride.
