5 Things on a Friday: Heading Home Edition

Note: I'm actually posting this late Thursday night.  Since it's almost midnight, I'm not bothering to set up a posting time for tomorrow morning.  This is my Friday post.

We're leaving for home today, and although I'm looking forward to checking out my garden and sleeping in my own bed, I'm taking a lot of great memories home with me.   Here are just a few:

1- Sometimes the opportunity to live out one of life's simple pleasures presents itself and shouldn't be passed up.  Dining at Lidia's in Pittsburgh was one of those things.

2- Seeing my son's face when he got to see his "Abuelita" (his grandmother) and his Tio Jaime who live in El Salvador made the 11+ hour car-ride to Washington worth it.

My son, who told my husband to "go over there so Tio Jaime can push me" with his uncle and Abuelita

3- Getting dressed up in a fancy dress and dancing the night away with my husband at the wedding.

4- Enjoying the weekly community bonfire on Dewey Beach, roasting marshmallows and watching the children experience the magic that is staying up late to laugh and dance with the lapping of the waves in the background.

5- Spending sunset on the beach, searching for seashells, digging in the sand and letting the waves wash over my feet.  And enjoying it all with family.

One last thing- we were treated to a show when a traveling school of dolphins swam by not too far from shore, leaping and frolicking in the water, chattering to each other the whole time.  That memory will last a lifetime.
