“Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.”
― Aristotle

While my dog is a patient playmate with Emily I am waiting patiently for the days to pass by.  Shortly, by the weeks end, I will be on the way with my little family to visit my parents and sisters in Maryland!  Getting a week long reprieve from the busy grind at the nursing home is lovely enough, but to throw in a stay at the ocean in a very nice condominium with our own suite and I am ecstatic.  For the first time since I've been a working adult I am taking a week off of work!

Now, it'll also be my first vacation with a baby in tow, but for that I couldn't be more excited either.  I have an excuse to play in the tidal pools and build little sandcastles without looking silly! Meanwhile the preparation part seems daunting.  Bags to pack, equipment to bring, dogs to board, and a baby to keep occupied for the nine hour drive. 

But hey, if I can make the trip down to Maryland solo, 32 weeks pregnant last year and then solo with three month old for Thanksgiving then I think it'll be an easy challenge to surmount this time. 

If only the work week would HURRY UP!

When we take the kids away, we no longer call it a vacation. We call it a trip, because no one really relaxes. :-) I have to say, however, that our last trip to the beach with them, though not relaxing, was fantastic. We played in the sand, got ice cream on the boardwalk, and let them watch Disney while we ordered room service. You're going to love your trip with Emily!
