Today’s prompt

Share a childhood memory that makes you smile.

I could write about my trip to Walt Disney World in 1990. That trip brings a smile to my face. But that’s what most people expect from me.

So what childhood memory makes me smile the most. It’s the trip to Boulder, Colorado when I was 10. My grandma was suppose to go on the trip. However she had back surgery so she couldn’t go. My family decided I was going to fly to Boulder from Dayton by myself.

Once I got there, my aunt and her first husband picked me up from the airport. I was going to be staying with them.

We traveled through a national park. So I got to the Rockies. We then went to a friend’s apartment. Uncle Mike drank a beer. I can remember telling him that “you are not supposed to drink and drive.”  (We must have been talking about it at school.)  I also remember eating olives for the first time while visiting them.

My aunt was going to be travelling home to Ohio so I was going to be her riding companion. Because of a snow storm, we were delayed a day leaving for home. We drove through Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana before getting to my house at some ridiculous hour in the morning.

Since I fell asleep while we were driving through Illinois, my family made me go to school the next day.

So why does this memory make me smile, I think this trip started my wanderlust. I love exploring new places and even places I’ve visited before.

In fact, next week Hubby and I are going to take a small weekend trip to explore a new city. Then next month, we are going on another trip.

I sometimes will travel different ways to work because of that wanderlust.

What is a childhood memory that makes you smile?
