It's a day late for Mother's Day but I was just reading a post from RS on his Facebook page about travelling with his Mom. It made me think of vacations with my Mom. Just wanted to share a memory:
About a year before my Mom’s 80th birthday, I had asked her where she wanted to go for her birthday. She told me Hawaii…I’d actually meant where did she want to go out for dinner and if we should organize a party. But what the heck, we planned a family trip to Hawaii. Off to the beach one day and my Mom was so excited. She got into the ocean and told me something that I’d never realized; that she’d never swum in the ocean before and it meant a lot to her to get a chance. It was one of those days where the child became the parent and I was so happy to sit back and watch her enjoying herself. The next day she ramped it up and bought a snorkel, goggles and fins and it is one of my favourite photos. She turns 90 later this year and is dropping hints again of being included on another trip. We'll see.
Anyone else with a memorable travelling with Mom story?
