We are a married couple who adopted our little Russky, Nikita {aka Nicky, Nicky noodle, little man, Nikoli, the Nickster, crazy dude, goofball, puppy love, etc...you get the picture!} from St Petersburg, Russia four years ago. Join us as we stumble through the joys and perils of parenthood, while our son teaches us a few things along the road...


Dream a Little Dream

Since we've been married, we like to take a trip to the beach at least once a year.  We honeymooned in Aruba (our favorite place so far); spent time in St Lucia while we were awaiting our fertility fate (nothing like lounging in the sun sipping Pimm's to pass the time!); and our first "family" trip with Nicky was last year to the Florida Keys.  Since then, he's been all about the beach.  He constantly wants to know when we're going to go back.  Every airplane he sees in the sky is headed to the beach.  I quite like his thinking.  How nice it would be to live close enough to dip my toes in the sand and hunt for sea shells.  *sigh*

This year's trip is up in the air.  We originally planned a trip to Mexico over Labor Day, but our flights got all messed up and we had to cancel.  Then we thought about going to San Diego, but we weren't completely sold on the idea.  We were hoping to go to see Uncle Brent in St Thomas for Thanksgiving, but we've not heard whether or not that's gonna happen, even though Nana and Pop have agreed that it would be fun.  So we thought we'd take an "adults only" trip to South Padre Island for Labor Day, leaving Nicky with Nana and Pop, and he'd still get the beach trip for turkey day.  But, now I'm back to wanting to spend Thanksgiving land-locked with the rest of our family (cousins mostly and Nana and Pop) in Dallas, which leaves us still needing somewhere to go beach-wise for Labor Day with the little Russky!  Grr! 

What to do, what to do.  Who knew planning a beach trip could turn out to be so challenging?  So, now I'm left to dream and surf the interwebnets for places that we would love to visit some day, and am compiling a beach bucket(list)!  Here's a beautiful, serene east coast destination to start off the list...it's located in the village of Watch Hill, RI and I wish we were there right now! 

If it's true that the only thing that will stop you from fulfilling your dreams is you, then someday we'll be waking up to that view.

In the meantime, I'll be searching for more dreamy vacation spots to spend a little holiday with my two favorite boys!
