But not this year. Nope! No way! We didn't miss the purple patch this year!
Then, abruptly, our visit was cut way too short because this little girl had to use the facilities, and once again, I found my self pushing down on the gas pedal.
And, this is one of my most favorite memories. More memorable than Halloween or birthdays. Just something we share together. Going to the secret, hidden purple patch. Just her and I.
