    cherish the delight

    Please correct the following sentence.

    Though the trip was only two days, I believed that my whole family would cherish the delight and make our days there became an unforgettable memory.

    Re: cherish the delight

    I think "cherish the experience" is relatively idiomatic, if you really want to use the verb cherish (which you should, because it's a lovely and underused word!), but "cherish the delight" sounds a little unnatural somehow.
