So its a bit late, very late actually - but either way I'm still going to post it because it's part of my life. My family and I took a very power-packed vacation and roadtripped from Louisville to Niagra Falls overnight. We shot straight to there and spent a day-ish out in Toronto before gunning it over to Ocean City, MD to meet my cousins. This was the start of my crazy two weeks back in June where I was jumping from city to state to country borders. It was insane. I had such a numb butt by the end of this leg of the trip, but you learn to cherish and value the time you have with your family.
This was a big trip for my mom, she reconnected with her friends from back when she was in Vietnam. The last time she saw them was when she got married and that was before I even existed and she hadn't seen them since. It was a big trip for me, getting to finally meet my friend Peter in Toronto! It was more important for her though, and so I'm glad she got to fulfill that part of what she wanted for once.
Ocean City was a pretty nice chill time for me, a nice decent break before we took off to go home in Kentucky. We dropped by Philly so I got to see my other cousin who couldn't go because of summer classes but it was great seeing Kathy and her family again. It's great having someone who understands everything that happens in the family since it seems to run in the family at this point. Next post will be on my next leg of the trip - Las Vegas.
