The thing I miss the most is summers at my parents. When I got married, I moved down to Oregon and welcomed the rainy weather. Well, tried to that is. I love Oregon and how beautiful it is on the west side but nothing compares to the summers at home. They are hot and dry. I love eastern Washington. I try to go up every summer to spend at least a couple weeks. My kids love it and I don't think it could possibly be the fact that my parents have a pool. lol I love being there. I'm a different person there, relaxed and happy. I think it's the comfort of home. I want to go as often and for as long as I can cause I know that my parents wont be around forever. I want to spend as much time with them as I can and make sure that my kids have many opportunities to make memories with them.
