Last year, we also did a family vacation at the beach. It was at LBI in New Jersey and it included Joe and his siblings and parents and even for a short time one of his friends. I wrote about that vacation here. There were many times during this past week that reminded me of that vacation at LBI and how wonderful it was and the joy of sharing it with our families. There were even times when I thought about how much Joe would have enjoyed this vacation at Sandbridge. In the end though, I know that he would have most liked the fact that the little guy and I were getting some good quality time together away from work and away from the pressures of maintaining the house.
And just as we created very special memories last year, we created many more this year too.
We visited the Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach and I know that Joe would have enjoyed seeing all the planes and cars and reading about the history of them.
