To Be Young Again

Yesterday I had some errands to run.
As I was slowing down to stop at a traffic light, I noticed a Toyota Sequoia that was stopped directly in front of me. The vehicle had Ohio plates on it. Obviously it was tourists, that were visiting our fine area.
In the front seat were the adults.
In the 2nd and 3rd row passenger seat area were a gaggle of kids.
I sat there watching the kids. You could see the excitement in their facial expressions and in their eyes.
The excitement of visiting new places and seeing new things. The excitement of being away from the usual and familiar.
The excitement of being young, on vacation and not a worry in the world.
I watched as the vehicle turned into the parking lot of the Wright Brothers National Memorial.
Based on the looks of those kids faces, I knew that they were going to have a great day.
Oh....to be young again.

I couldn't agree with you more and I can just see those kid's faces!

I'm from the youth-is-wasted-on-the-young school.

Then again, I'm pretty old....
