Sweet Boy and I have begun packing for an upcoming trip. We leave tomorrow and will begin with a visit to great Grandma. Our mission is to help get her settled into a new assisted living home. I will be taking my 88 year old granny and 8 year old son on a pontoon boat ride around one of the nearby lakes. I am not sure who is more excited at this point.
From there it’s off to Philadelphia and a visit with Auntie, Uncle and our cousin. Sweet boy wants to jog up the “Rocky” steps and I can’t wait to head out into the Pennsylvania countryside.
We’ll also hop on a train bound for NYC. Sweet Boy is so excited to be going to the Museum of Natural History. I have picked up a big bone for “Rex” in case he desires a game of fetch. We’ll be staying with good friends. Our friendship goes back to our military days in Warner Robins, Georgia.
Our trip will also include a little something to pacify our love for the theater. We have wanted to see “The Lion King” for ages. It is thrilling to think about seeing it on Broadway.
The final leg of our trip will have us at the Jersey Shore. We’ll be bypassing Snookie and The Situation for somewhere a bit lovelier, Cape May. I hope to visit with my dear friend Deborah. Our time there will be spent at the Chalfonte Hotel, a turn of the century charmer.
Upon our return at the end of the month my mother’s ashes will be placed at her families cemetery in Delta, Colorado.
A long and winding road in the journey of life to be sure.
I will be taking a break from blogging and will return at the end of the month. Feel free to read my archives.
How are you spending your summer?
