Favorite childhood memory?

My mom took my sister and me for two cross-country road trips. Although, I was very young and cannot remember much of it, there are parts that stuck with me. I remember how nice it felt. I had no idea where we were going or where we were. I had no worries or cares. I had never felt so free, so peaceful, or so alive before then. I was liberated that summer.
