One more week until vacation! We are joining my family in Cape Cod, MA for a week, and I couldn’t be more excited. A break from the routine of work will be a long overdue relief, and it will also mark the first time my parents, and my brother have seen Morrigan since she was born. We are planning on biking along the coastline (hopefully – if I can convince Kristin), exploring the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, and making a trip up to the Provincetown just to say we have done it all. I don’t have a strict schedule this time, but I am hoping we can do some whale watching if we are in season, and hit the beach for a little while.
Its been four months since Morrigan was born, and she is growing up fast. The folks have offered to help take care of her for a little while and give Kristin and I a break to go out and enjoy ourselves again for a few hours. It is a big thing to miss having someone to watch over Morrigan when you are without family in an area. Prior to this vacation, Kristin and I have alternated taking care of Morrigan 24 hours a day. It will be hard to imagine having someone else care for her for a change.
Jeffrey files in to Providence’s TF Green next Friday, and it will be the first time he has seen our house since we have moved from Atlanta. He recently got a new house of his own, and I realized I never saw his previous residence. That makes us even, since he never saw our place in Braintree, MA.
While I am thinking about family and friends, birthday wishes are in order for Ripley “Dinky” Templeman who turned two years old on May 13th. Congrats to you both Chris and Kellie!
Also, I will be making a pilgrimage down to Atlanta at the end of July, and I would love to see some folks! I look forward to that Atlanta heat for a change, and will probably eat myself sick on all the foods that I miss.
