I'm stuck at work today, but the good thing is it's a light day and my manager is out (which means I can spend lots of time visiting my e-friends)! If it doesn't rain, I'm going to take Donovan too see the fireworks display at Nomahegan Park tonight. I'm a little leery as to how he will respond to the loud noise, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed and my camera ready!
The count down to my vacation has begun! In less than 48 hours Troy, Donovan, and I will be on a plane to sunny Jamaica (along with 7 of my in-laws). I am so excited as I need a vacation really bad! This is one of those proud moments for me as a parent. I'm a strong believer that each generation is supposed to be better than the last. My baby's first trip out of the country is to the same place as his father's and my first trip out of the country. Troy and I went to Jamaica when we were 22 and 21 years old, respectively and now Donovan is getting to experience that at 3. Growing up as a chlid, taking a drive down south was our vacation and when my mom was growing up...well let's just say that there weren't any vacations as there were 15 of them! Can you imagine?
I love to travel and although I haven't been to nearly as many places as I'd like, I want my son (and any future children) to experience that same passion. By the time Donovan is my age, I hope that he has travelled to even further corners of the earth!
But anyway, enjoy celebrating our nation's birth, grill safely and don't get too close to those fireworks! Have fun!
