Day 15: World Traveler
Day 15: A picture of something that you want to do before you die.
I want to travel the world before I die. I have never been anywhere with the exception of a couple of road trips from Florida to Pennsylvania and a Caribbean cruise. There is so much world for me to see and I am itching to see it. I want to experience different cultures and see the world from a different perspective. I want to go to China and observe panda bears and walk the Great Wall of China. I want to go to Africa and take a safari ride. I want to go to Australia and go snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef. I want to see the Eiffel Tower and take a gondola ride through the canals of Venice. I want to have an Italian dinner in Italy and break a plate in Greece while shouting "opa". I want to rent a car in Maui and drive down the Hana Highway. I want to take a road trip down Route 66 and climb a glacier in Alaska. You get the picture- I want to do and see everything that this world has to offer. Maybe I'll start by taking Landon to Sanible Island for a weekend in the Spring. It's not far from here and a place that I have always wanted to go. It's apparently one of the very best beaches for sea shells. I don't know why I haven't gone before. I think I may do just that once the weather warms up.
Landon, also known as "Landon Love" or "Love Bug" is our pride and joy. Landon is incredibly loving and is always giving the best hugs and kisses. Landon knows that he is adorable and uses it to his advantage. He knows the exact moment to flash his smile so that he is no longer in any trouble. Landon loves playing Candy Land, playing hide and seek, riding his bike and playing with Tinkerbell. His current favorite shows are Super Why, Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Caillou. He is obsessed with animals, Cars, and super heroes. Raising Landon these past three years has been quite an adventure and we couldn't imagine life without him.
These days I am best known as "Mommy". I am a snot wiper, boo boo kisser and a boogy monster chaser. I am a chef, a teacher, a nurturer and a comforter. I love taking daily walks, playing at the park with Landon and just enjoying my life as a mom. If by chance I happen to get a spare moment, then I enjoy filling that time by baking, reading, and scrapbooking. I live a very simple life that revolves around Landon and I would have it no other way.
Kevin is an amazing dad to Landon. He loves to play with Landon and read to him. Kevin enjoys spending his free time relaxing on the couch while watching ESPN, reading an occasional book, and cooking.
We consider Tinkerbell our first born. She is an absolutely adorable Pomeranian. Tinkerbell acts like a third parent to Landon and even barks when Landon is doing something that he should not be doing to get our attention. She is so loving and gentle to Landon, even when he is rough and tough with her. We couldn't ask for a better dog for Landon to grow up with.
