Memories are fragile. Having them, sharing them and losing them can all happen at the same time. They are precious moments that can be lost. The pictures today from Twinsburg Ohio in 1999. We wandered there to visit the Twinsburg Twins Festival. It was one of our first big expeditions before moving from Cincinnati to Indiana. We had gone to Disneyworld earlier that spring,t his was in the summer months before moving back to Indiana. It was one of our first vacations with the entire family. I am bringing that up because today marks the first big vacation we’ve taken where not everyone is going. My daughter, her finance, and their dogs are staying at the house while we are gone.
Twinsburg is very near Cleveland. That was a drive (Cincinnati to Cleveland) that I had made a few times over the years. That, however, was the last time I would ever drive to Cleveland. I later flew to Cleveland several times, but I never drove there again. I guess that makes today’s pictures lots of firsts and lasts. Interesting how time provides those fun moments! I am, because of different circumstances. Breaking my vacation rule about telling before I go rather than reporting after we return! I always have in the past not informed anyone. I don’t often miss posts but this time I may. As such, I wanted people to know upfront that if I weren’t commenting or returning their comments, I would just not until after I got back!
Sometimes the easy path is communication.and sharing. Sometimes that is the hard path. The last comment is around the twins stroller. Lugging one of those onto a cruise ship, or a Disneyworld hotel is not easy. Moving it around an airplane is not easy either. It had to be checked as luggage. Moving it into the car was easy, and I much preferred that. The twins adopted a very early connection to a location. One always like to be in the front, the other in the back. I am not sure why they choose that seating arrangement but if you didn’t follow their arrangement they got a little grouchy. Or a lot grouchy depending on how tired they were. The wonder of that stroller was that they could both sleep in it comfortably.
