Cambridge Get Together

This weekend, Chris, my mom, my dad and I took a road trip to Cambridge for the Ethiopian get together. We all felt over joyed seeing all the kids home with their families. They all looked so cute and happy. Running around playing, laughing and just being kids. It was so great to be able to associate reality to this journey. I felt I was a little shy to approach others as I didn't have a child with me but I'm sure the more of them I attend the more people I will meet. I just didn't want to bother others with my comments and questions. I did however get to meet some families from the blog world and others from the area and felt "Wow, we really aren't alone in this crazy situation" there were alot more people there than I would have expected. I guess I didn't think there were so many of us in Ontario.

I would like to thank Jacklyn for organizing such a great even for us and I look forward to the next. Hopefully it's sooner than later.

(I don't have any pictures, as I didn't think it was place to take pictures of others children)

After the get together we drove to Toronto and stayed there over night. My parents had never been up the CN Tower so we took a "COLD" walk over and went up. We even ventured outside up there and froze our areas but we had a great time. Everytime i'm back in the city it makes me want to move back. I would love to move into the city but having 3 dogs and a child on the way it's not a possibility. Something I should have done in my early 20s. Oh well, visiting is just as good. We also discussed a possible New York/Philly road trip this summer, so i'm excited.

It was great that you made the trip. It was very nice meeting you, Chris and your parents. I thought the same thing about pictures...I didn't bring my camera since I figured people wouldn't want me taking pictures of their kids :-)
