It was the dream of my grandparents that all of their children and their furture grandchildren would KNOW each other so they purchased timeshares for each of their 6 children. Our families come from all over, but as long as I can remember, we have come to these beaches.
There are beautiful beaches all over the world, but this is my home when it comes to dancing in the sand and splashing the ocean over my face.
And now...I have a beautiful little boy to pass on the tradition that my grandparents hoped for. I have missed Florida for the past 2 years due to pharmacy school. It was not going to happen this year.
So I snuck away...
Luckily I got to see Thurgood fall in love with the ocean. (Last year....he avoided it completely.)
I also got to see a father and son catch a glimpse of nature...look closely below and you will see what we saw in the wee hours of the morning.
Between father & son and..
And Poppa & grandson...(note: all people in the pool are family..there are over 40 of us now.)
I also got to witness a "coming of age": Thurgood getting tossed by his Poppa. I LOVED this when I was little.
So much fun to witness!
What a wonderful way to spend 100 hours. It went by so fast. I flew home Tuesday. My family will stay on till Saturday.
I have been under a siege of exams and papers lately. Yet this upcoming Monday and Tuesday I have 2 HIGH STAKES finals.
What does that mean?
Either I pass and go on to rotations or I stay behind...so obviously I have been ever so diligent with my studies. And when I am done with my studies, I will be ready for Poppa to throw me into the pool.
And as I study the days & nights away for my finals..I will think of my 100 hours peering from this balcony and the tiny secret holiday I indulged in with my family and in honor of my father's parents.
