The day finally arrived and Dylan and Heather were bursting with excitement. I of course was bursting with nerves. When we arrived at the airport a special agent checked us into security and examined each piece of Dylan's equipment. When we were finished we were off to the gate where they allowed us to pre-board. The flight attendants were very accommodating and before we knew it we were in the air on our way to Puerto Rico. Dylan did not stop talking the whole way there. After we landed and were settled in at our hotel I think Ron and I both felt so accomplished. I knew that Ron had been wanting to take the kids to Puerto Rico for a long time and that it meant a lot for him to be there with them.
Then the partying began and when I say partying I mean Cuevas style which is non stop action for the entire weekend. Highlights were Andy and Adriana's fabulous wedding, Alyssa and Heather's sleepover & getting to spend quality time with my niece, my Dad's credit card not working, Bob's laser beam glasses, Arthur drinking coconut juice, our van which was the size of a small island, Jet skiing, Loquillo Beach, fried foods, tropical drinks, celebrating Lisa's birthday, lots of laughs with Cathy and "Nick", our Trip to the Rainforest, visiting Ron's Aunt's house, Old San Juan, spending time with my handsome nephews, laying on the beach and getting to be with great friends and wonderful family in one of our favorite places, Puerto Rico.
When we arrived back in New York I turned to Dylan and told him that I was very proud of him and that he did a great job on the trip. He turned to me and said, Mama, thank you for taking me to Puerto Rico and making this trip happen. I know you worked hard to get us there. He then asked me when we could go to Hawaii!! Definitely to be continued.....
