Bigger and Better?

July 25, 2016

Last Christmas 2015 I went to my grandparents house for the first time in a long time. They usually come to my parents house but it was more fitting for us to go visit them.

First, we went to my moms mothers house. I have a lot of good memories from there and going back much older it looked and felt the same but it wasn’t. 

My dads parents live in the same town but closer into town than my mother. On the ride there, my parents were like “Do I want to go drive by our old house?” I said no. I’d rather keep the good memories I had than see that the house and neighborhood had become since we moved in the early 90s. 

If I were a kid like many kids here during the summer I would think the place that I swim 6 days a week to be the size of an ocean and literally freezing but in reality its 200 meters in length and 68 degrees year around. 

Sometimes I think the world is better perceived as if you are the kid and everything is so big because once you realize its not you realize you are no longer as big or small as you once did.
