Posts Tagged ‘Vacation’

Every summer the Park family treks down to Hilton Head for a week of relaxation. For the past 2 years it was spent without me since I’ve been in New York trying hard to study, intern anywhere I could (being stuck in fashion closets, dressing models in 20 seconds flat for fashion week), and now working. I just read my sister Christina’s blog entitled, “From Start to Continuum” which made me feel like I was on vacation and left a smile on my face.

Family Time is Sweet

Of all the Park family vacations taken, I think this past one was the laziest. It was a wonderful time to enjoy the company of my dynamic family. There was plenty of food eating and beach walking, but all of it was done at a pace that left a lot of time for reflection. Reflection was only spurred on by a constant reminder to think and not just check out.

Things learned about family:

  • Playing board games with competitive spirits is bad for everyone involved
  • Walking up the stairs every time we leave our room only does so much to offset the massive amounts of food consumed.
  • Dad shares food, something not all dads are willing to do
  • 3 pints of ice cream, 2 boxes of frozen fruit bars, 1 box of drumstick ice cream bars, 1 box of frozen capri-sun is not enough frozen novelty sustenance for 5 Parks for 5 days
  • We love each other by grace
