Vacation From My Vacation

I've been on vacation since April 17th. Visited relatives near Chicago. The highlight of that trip was camping with my son, daughter inlaw and granddaughter. They encouraged me to try rock climbing out in nature (not just the climbing gym) what an adventure! Makes me aware of just how much I am aging. It takes alot of flexibility that I just don't have anymore. I thank them for making me push my limits..."Do what you think you can't!" I also had a reunion with a special friend from my highschool days, it had been far too long. I realized in catching up with her that I had accomplished alot in 8 years. Each day seems to pass slowly, but looking back, the days just flash by. Live each day to the fullest! I flew back home to CA with my precious little 5 year old granddaughter Bailey. What a ball full of fun she is. We went to Disneyland for the 2nd year in a row. Last year it was fun to see her face the first time on things like rollercoasters and this year it was fun to see her excitement knowing what she was in for. Two inches taller and able to take in a few more frightening rides. She is a daredevil, she went on rollercoasters over and over again, however she was frightened of the Haunted House and Pirates of the Carribean. We were then joined by my parents from Illinois. We enjoyed the San Diego Zoo with them and wine country amoung other things. Many good meals and 10 lbs later everyone has gone home. It was a nice month that went by all to fast! I now need a vacation from my vacation...I am ready to make some art now, with lots of new inspiration and energy found.
