As summer ends, many of the national parks empty out of record high visitors and start preparing for the upcoming fall and winter months.  Before Alex entered our life, Doug and I spent some nice vacations in Arizona, New Mexico, Maine, Oregon, Washington and more, enjoying the relatively quieter times in some of our national parks.

When Alex, Doug and I visited Olympic National Park a few years ago, I stumbled upon their “passport” program which gives kids (and adults, if you’re so inclined) a passport to have stamped when you visit a national park.

Many of our readers know that we have a second home in Vermont that I really enjoy. We go up regularly all year round. I believe my love of Vermont started in my childhood running around in the woods of Cary, NC. We moved to Cary just as the Research Triangle Park area was starting to develop.

I recently took my son to see the movie Ready Player One which takes place in the year 2045. It tells of a world where people prefer to spend their time in the "Oasis"—a virtual world where their imagination was their only limit.

When I was a kid growing up in North Carolina, we often spent our days outside in the woods behind our house just goofing off, swinging from vines into the small creeks, or hanging out in my friend’s brother’s tree stand of questionable safety.

Growing up as a kid, I don’t really remember playing many board games until I reached high school with the exception of Backgammon. We had a travel version of it that I would play with my family and friends on our sailing trips in the waters of North Carolina.

It’s amazing how things have changed.  During the winter months as a youth, I was likely inside playing board games with my friends.  We played all the classics plus some newcomers such as Pictionary and Trivial Pursuit.

This time of year is busy with the hustle and bustle of the holidays. I find that it makes it difficult to see the “magic” of Christmas or the world around you according to your personal faith. Whether you are religious or not, I do believe in magic.
