After a month of traveling what feels like around the world.... am back at my desk, maybe I even have a flower in my hair, a pretty messy house, a spoiled rotten tod who now won´t let go of her paci and refuses to go potty... but most of all, I am back here with another treasure of family memories, full hearts, and as a stronger family!
Am a dreamer, I think I was born one, and will die one. That is one of the reasons I love traveling so much, because vacations are like double the fun when you count the time you spend planning and dreaming of the good times we are going to have plus your actual vacation! Then of course, because life is real,,,vacations are pretty real too, and not everything is picture perfect as pictures look! Regular things like finding a place to eat when you realize you are starving can turn out to be a real nightmare, thinking that you can still potty train your baby while on the go was as optimistic as it gets, and then suddenly we are in a hotel bathroom taking the stroller apart so we can wash it down... or tired kids whining because that day it made no sense to walk and walk without really having a place to go. And then there are the days that you are sooo tired that you get angry at how in the world could the girls possibly still be laughing at anything and everything... to then find yourself laughing with them because they tell you.... ¨mom... you really look exhausted today!¨
We made many good memories that as I start to see the pictures, know that they will feed my dreamer self for years to come, they will put a smile on my face every time I remember them, my pick me ups when I need picking up...and will make me long for vacation because for the time we are together nothing else matters in the whole wide world.
This year we made it to Panama, Orlando, Chicago and NYC. I will write a post on each city later on this week and next, but here are some random pictures, the ones that while I downloaded them stood out to me... the ones that make me smile!
About this picture... well I guess that if you see her red cheeks, you can also imagine that it was about 100 degrees... but with that smile there is only one possible place she could be!
Once in Chicago, and me being an architect, we just had to run to the Bean and take as many pictures and selfies as we possibly could! it was fuuun!
Love watching them without them seeing me.... I just go into this far away world...
This park was more fun than any water park we´ve been too.... I might be exaggerating a bit but right now it just feels that way!
They ran on every inch of grass Chicago had to offer!
A concert in the park!!! I can´t tell you we listen to every note of the symphony... but it was a the best of time!
A selfie after mass at St Patrick NYC!
At the time I saw this painting on a building... everybody was hot an whining.... It magically all turned good right there!
The best of this trip.. my children, blended but embedded in me...all mine!!!
