when we were there in march we decided to take the kids one night to have a cold coke & play in the water. well this time we wanted for them to be able to enjoy a nice meal & swim in the water.
it was so fun to take my sweet girls there. most of the girls are afraid to swim or they cannot so they sit in the shallow end of the water & play. their smiles will make your heart so happy & when you hear them laughing bc they are having such an amazing time being kids it makes you appreciate all your childhood memories with your family.
i sat there watching them while they ate their chicken, rice, beans, plantains & enjoying their coke. mickerlange kept trying to cut her chicken wing with a fork & a knife like all the other girls. they think it is more respectful to eat this way when out somewhere nice. now.. trying to cut this chicken with a fork & a knife is a little difficult. so i told her, "girrrrllll, no way" & i picked up my chicken & ate it like a pro with both hands. her little face lit up like FINALLY i can eat this thing & she did. all the other girls did the same after seeing that all of us were doing it. after we ate we went & played in the water. i sat there taking photos & videos & hearing them shout my name so i would watch what they were doing or take their photo & i was just so happy. so incredibly happy that people donated to help make such a special day for them come to pass. THANK you to everyone that helped make this day possible. they do not get days like this often or at all & it means the world to them & to me.
