Sunday Drives and Family Time

Last night Lyle drove up in the mountains a bit to pick up our older daughter from a friend's house. The rest of us went along for the ride. I had been told that the night view was spectacular from this friend's house with the lights twinkling in the valley below and I wanted to see it. Also, the moon was full last night and it was just a nice night for a drive. As we drove home we were commenting on the beauty of the drive, and the evening in general.

Our younger daughter said, "We should go for a Sunday afternoon drive tomorrow! We haven't done that in a long time!" (Mainly because it's been winter for a long time!)

Sunday drives are a favorite family activity around here, in case you hadn't noticed. I've wondered, though, if it was really something that Lyle and I mainly enjoyed and the kids just came along because they didn't have much choice. So I asked 'Becca what she liked about it... "Oh, just getting to go for a drive and seeing the mountains... and the deer... and snow... and getting stuck in the snow... and family time!"

I am grateful that our teen children want to do things with us!

And in case you wondered, we didn't end up going for a drive today. We have a trip coming up in a little over a week, so we decided to stay in today... though we were tempted!
