Wordlessful Wednesday -Vacation


Mom on a horse. Her favorite activity when we travel to the Caribbean.



Me on a horse. Four months pregnant.


My aunt, uncle and cousin. Let's say it together now - on a horse. I know that is incorrect syntax but work with me here.
The Story Behind the Photos
In December 2006 my cousin was married in the beautiful Dominican Republic. Our family gathered for the wedding and it was one big family vacation. The water was pretty and the weather was beautiful. I can't speak about the nightlife - traveling when 4 months pregnant meant early bedtimes for me.

One of the things that we did enjoy doing was horseback riding. My uncle used to ride regularly as a kid and getting out on the horse was especially liberating for him. He galloped on the white sand for miles leaving the rest of us in the dust.

I'm sharing these photos today because they remind me of vacation and put me in the right frame of mind as I prepare to leave for New York. I am vacationing for the rest of this week and part of next. My family will enjoy time with Mekhi and I will act like a coed on spring break enjoy my weekend at Disney. I have big plans for when I return and I can't wait to share them with you. In the meantime I will post when I can and you will find me on twitter because I plan on tweeting my Disney trip.

As I write this I am looking at laundry that needs to be folded and the packing? Well, that hasn't happened yet. So I'm cutting this short and perhaps I will post tomorrow.

For more Wordful Wednesday visit Angie's Seven Clown Circus.
For Wordless Wednesday visit 5 Minutes for Mom.

Oh--it looks like you all are having so much fun! I want to go to the Dominican Republic. My brother went there for vacation earlier this year. The only pictures I saw was him with lots of beautiful women. Now, horse-back riding? I can do that.

I love the shot of you on the horse 4 months pregnant. I've been there too. Unfortunately no one got a picture of me though. :) Riding in the Caribbean must have been fun.
