Our vacation reminded me of this and seeing the joy on my boys’ faces as they discovered new places was unbelievable. It brings sadness, yet a lot of joy. It made me realize how important I believe family vacations are.
We can come together for those days with nothing on our schedule. No school, no work, no dishes to do. There is only time to spend with each other.
We ventured out on our very first cruise. We stopped in Jamaica and the Grand Cayman islands. In Jamaica, my oldest swam with the dolphins. My youngest was not old enough to swim, but he was able to kiss and hug a dolphin. It is an experience that they will always remember.
Those are the memories I want my children to have, the memories that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
