In my opinion, people use the term “cloud nine” loosely when referring to experiences. Nevertheless, if I say so myself, there is truly no other words to describe the day I had with my family. Last Monday, Martin Luther King’s Day, Bean and I spent some wonderful quality time with my father and brother. My mother then joined in the festivities.
I could write an entire essay on our day, since it has been imprinted in mine as one to never forget, but I will not bore you on ALL the details. Mom, Dad and Brian, if you happen to be reading this, thank you for the most wonderful day. I adored watching you with Bean. The relationship the three of you are developing with her, that is separate from the relationship you have with me, is such a gift. It gives me such pleasure seeing her eyes light up when you guys walk in the room.
Here are the highlights from our amazing day. It even includes a milestone: buying Bean her first big girl snow boots.
To say the least, at the end of the day she was exhausted and so was I, but we had a ball!
