Thomas Takes a Vacation!

Back on island with the whole family for my nephew's wedding. Keeping a blog for family and friends from my grandson's perspective. I welcome the TTOL family to follow along. You may want to go back a few entries to catch up. Enjoy

Very nice Tom. Thanks for sharing. I hope that Thomas' dad arrives without a hitch today and I'll send up a prayer for Grandpa Sam. Congrats to the newlyweds to be.

Wife and I are headed to San Juan tomorrow for our daughters wedding on Saturday. Island wedding was a surprise to us but I was more excited than anyone. We thought we would make a vacation out of it so we are headed to St. Martin Monday <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/circle.gif" alt="" />

Hey congrats to your daughter! I'm sure she had you in mind while planning! We went to SXM in March for the first time, had a great time. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/toast.gif" alt="" />

Sorry for not keeping the blog real time. Between my grandson and so much going on my computer time has been very limited. There are so many stories to tell - what a week. Stay tuned!

Wow Wow Wow!

Saturday - another great day. The blog is not real time, but please enjoy.

BTW - Not trying to open other thread wounds. On the way home I had our taxi driver take us to the old Arby's location. (He had been on island for many years) It was exactly where I thought it was. But it was First floor.

We had the same carrier for our son. He travelled many miles in that thing!

Reading your blog brings back a flood of memories of when our son was little. Why does they time go so fast?

Thanks for the report.

Once again I must apologize for the erratic postings. Our family's life have been crazy since our return.

Please enjoy the latest adventure of Thomas Takes A Vacation.

At last the blog has come to end.
Today there are two installments.

Our Last Day - Wednesday - Time to Say Goodbye

I have also added an epilogue to bring the story to a conclusion. It was tough to write Epilogue

Thank you for following along

Sorry to hear about your family's loss.

It was fun reading your blog. It warms my heart to see three generations traveling together. We take trips with my mom and step dad (my son's true grandfather) almost every year and we all cherish the memories.
