Jersey Boy

Daddy told me before we left for New York that this vacation is not really a vacation. Every day is full. Each day, I've met new friends and cousins who've held me and hugged me and kissed me and I've felt compelled to put up a show for them. It's hard work and tiresome, but I can't say that I'm complaining.

But today was kinda special.

Instead of getting caught in the family assembly line, Mommy and Daddy bundled me up to protect me from the cold, packed me up into the car and drove me to an indoor mall in New Jersey.

It wasn't that far away, only about ten miles. And the mall was big, but it was no big deal. Mommy and Daddy took their time looking in stores, but truth be told, we didn't buy much.

But what we did get was some time together, just the three of us.

That was our little vacation from our vacation.

And when we returned, I met more cousins and friends and did so with a huge smile on my face. And, just as we'd been having, we continued to have a great time.

But, between the three of us and only the three of us, we'll always have Jersey.
