Remembering in Five #reverb10

In a year full of ordinary days and moments and the little things that we do and quickly forget... here is to taking five minutes to capture what we shouldn't forget.

  • snow disc golf at Lincoln Park in Belle Plaine... we bundled up and had a ton of fun romping in the snow =)  I actually shot pretty good as well!
  • my ordination... that is one thing that I probably couldn't forget... and I've talked about it already in these prompts
  • our family trip to Hawaii - just being there with all of those wonderful people was amazing but there were also a few highlights of this particular trip:  Pearl Harbor with Brandon, spending some time driving on the west coast of the island, the extraordinarily difficult hike up Koko Head Crater, the ways that Brandon and DJ bonded with each other
  • our time at Lake Okoboji... lots of storms, lots of adult beverages, wind, water, and far too much food!!!
Wow - was that really only five minutes? 

The time went far more quickly than I would have imagined.  If according to the prompt for today's reverb10 post:
Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010.
There are a lot of things that I didn't get a chance to write about. So many memories that would have slipped away.  It makes me want to do it over... to try to pack as much in as I possibly can so that I really won't forget.

Ready: go!
