On Friday, Nick and I are driving north to Red Point where we’ll be with my family for a few days on the Chesapeake Bay. I cannot wait to share this place with our child. For those that have been there, I’m sure you’re rolling your eyes thinking, “I have been there, and it isn’t all that great.” Well, for me it is. It is a small community that you may need to know to love, but for me, it offers a lifetime of memories. For all of the places that I have lived in my life, we always returned to the bay. My grandparents bought a cottage when my mom was a baby and we have always had a cottage to visit. This year, my parents bought their own cottage and so the memories can now continue for my own children. I look forward to watching them play in the sand, swim in the water, learn how to ski, go for boat rides and fishing, run in the grove and in general, enjoy the sense freedom that summer can offer a kid. Hopefully next year, we’ll be able to take our baby along.
Also, congratulations to Jenna! She got her travel approval last night and will be meeting her baby, Emma, in two weeks!
