The Only...

I know this is blurry....but I love this picture. This is the first thing I saw when we walked into the Vietnam Vetrans Memorial Park.
Lincoln Memorial
World War II monument. This was beautiful! While I walked, I thought of my Grandma's brother who died during the war. I thought of my Grandpa that fought in the war. It was a good place to think and to be grateful.

This is the only reason I hate traveling. Let me see if I can explain. I am so grateful for the amazing opportunity I have with Rusty Pickle. I have never been a traveler. Before I was 30, I had never been East of the Mississippi River. Don't get me wrong. My parents showed me amazing places that exist inside of Utah. By the time I was in 3rd grade I had seen all the National Parks that are in our state. And they are breathtaking! But I have never seen anything like this. A place that memorializes amazing lives. People that have lived. People that have changed the country that my family lives in so it is a better place. A place for freedom. A place for the future. But I want my children to see these places too, and feel what I felt. That is the only reason that I don't like traveling alone, I can't share with them all the feelings I have when I am right there. Just in a few short months I have been in the middle of somewhere very, very cool and I want my kids to see it. Whether it is Downtown Disney, Niagra Falls, or Washington D.C... I want them right there beside me...


  1. Oh I wish I knew you were going to be so close. It looks like you were here the same weekend Joy and her family was here. We could have met you at the monuments!! I am glad you had a so much fun. Let me know when you are next in the area.

  2. We love DC! There's so much to learn and it gives you an even greater sense of appreciation for living in America - Land of the Free and Home of the Brave! You gotta take the kiddos there one day!

  3. I know how you feel about taking your kids along! I try to travel with them whenever is possible! Miss U! Débora
