Even though all the Hiking merit badge hikes are behind us we still headed out for a nice family hike.  Next week we’ll probably switch over to biking the trails for a while for a change of pace.  Today  it was great to get outside and enjoy fresh air while checking out some new areas as a family.

While we were walking we somehow got off on the tangent of Spam musubi, a snack we picked up when we were in Hawaii.  We quickly started talking about picking up the ingredients to make them next week (with a teriyaki chicken version for Becky).  Next thing we knew were talking about some of our favorite vacation meals.

Spam musubi – tastes way better than it has any right to.

We started talking about our favorite vacation meals and it was so much fun thinking back to our adventures together.  There were so many stories, memories, and experiences we shared and re-lived.  How wonderful to walk through all of those memories together!


The reason I am thankful for the memories of vacation meals doesn’t have nearly as much to do with food as it does with memories of wonderful experiences with my family.  I’m so thankful we’ve spent so much time with the boys.  This has been a wonderful opportunity to reflect on how thankful we are for the vacations we’ve taken as a family.   With all that’s going on we’re pretty sure it’ll be quite a while before we get to head out on our next trip (fingers crossed that I’m wrong on that).  Thinking about food was an added bonus!
