A lot of things have changed for us since this picture. We became parents, we traveled to some of the most unique places in the world, I started down a new career path, we even replaced this car with a more practical SUV. But as all these things change around us I realize that no matter what happens in the short term, you have to always keep to long term in mind. Always be able to change scales and see things for what they are now but also what they may mean later. We took these trips before we became parents with an understanding that out travel plans would change after childbirth. We have yet to make a big trip again but  have instead changed the scale of our trips to camping, hiking  and weekend trips to the Coast. We will get back to this one day but until then we don’t regret not being bale o take them we have just adjusted our scale.
