     It was “Ok, Mom” and then model rocket hissed and smoked its way off of the stand. It was high in the sky in old seconds, when a parachute popped out. Caught by the wind, the rocket was carried right down center and we followed. I followed it past center field as it floated to the ground somewhere in the distance. I pushed my way into forest and jumped the fence where I stopped. My day had taken me so far away from work, so far away from everything that I just didn’t realize that we’d been just on the other side of the busy Raeford Rd. I walked along the side of the road for a few feet before I found my daughters hand painted rocket.

     With rocket in hand, I disappeared from alongside Raeford Rd leaving it, work and most of my worries behind. It was later when the park ranger explained that there are no rockets allowed. So we finished the day walking along this little path talking about "our dreams" or what we plan to do in the coming year. Sometimes, laughing and sometime yelling at the kids to slow down as the disappear along the wooded walk. Eventually, we just popped outs some where and found or way back to the car. It was a quite get away on that first day that I visited, but that isn't always the case. Lake Rim park is a place where soccer moms chat on the bleacher in the afternoon while the kids play soccer and father shout and clinche fist as the football flies down the field. This is just a place where everyone comes together because there's so much here. See the information below.
