Milestones and Travels

Well, today is a BIG day. I am spending my first full day of a 10 day trip to San Diego to visit my beautiful daughter, her handsome hubby, my only dark haired, dark eyed grandson Noah, my blondie grandson Ethan and his getting blonder twin Luka. We are off to visit some botanical gardens today. Noah is in day camp so we don't want to do anything huge until he can go. He has chosen to visit the aircraft carrier Midway tomorrow and do the San Diego Animal Park on Sunday. When we were here last summer, we became members of the SD Zoo so we have free admission to the Animal Park also. Other things we might do while we are here is a trip to Mexico, the theatre, Balboa Park, Old Town etc etc etc.

Oh and did I mention that I turned 70 today!!! Ugh. Funny, I don't feel a lot older than yesterday. When I was 20 or 30, I thought 70 was ancient. I remember my aunt at the age of about 65 sitting cross legged on the floor playing with my children and thinking, "Wow, I hope I am like that when I am that OLD!!" Well, here I am even older, sitting cross legged on the floor, playing with my grandkids. I guess age is just a number, huh?

Happy birthday! I am not far behind you age-wise, but you are definitely my hero, doing far more with your energy than I am!

I agree- age is just a label (that I reject). Some people act like it's an expiration date, but not me!!

I'm glad you are getting a vacation with family. I know Karen is so excited you are out to visit!

Happy (belated) Birthday!!
