Anyone planning their 2013 vacation?

 I am in the midst of planning our 2013 vacation.....way early, I know, but I'm a planner! Plus, being a single mother I am the only income in the house...sooo, lots of planning. We haven't ever taken a vacation that was more than 2 nights.

We plan on heading to South Carolina next August. Found a 9 bedroom house a block or so from the beach :) So far it's myself, my mom, my son, my grandmother, and a friend of mine. I think my best friend is going to go too, along with her daughter. I asked another friend to go (her, her husband, and their 2 kids). Splitting the cost is making it soo much easier, and get to see people I only see every few years!

I am a tattooed, bike rally going, Pagan, book addict, recycling, fish loving, homeschooling mother of a 9 year old who is allowed to play Grand Theft Auto and stay up very late.

That sounds like so much fun! I've always wanted to take a big family vacation. It's hard to find a time everyone can go though.

We aren't sure what we want to do. I need to get on the ball though..

I had orginally planned on going to FL, but my best friend goes to SC every year. I haven't seen her since 2009 so at least we can meet up this way. I just want my son to see the beach, so I'm happy going to SC.

Changing jobs is making it harder for me. If I had stayed at my previous job I would have been able to take my paid vacation in March....since I just recently started I will be having to request unpaid time off.... :( I guess it will work in the end as I will still be able to have a week vacation that I do plan on splitting up the year after between a book convention and vacation in 2014!

I have sort of started. My sister-in-law is planning a destination wedding next spring, so we've blocked out two weeks to attend. We know that we'll be camping in the RV, unless she chooses a cruise. She's talked about Florida, California, or Las Vegas, so I've started researching those areas. I wish she would pick, so I could narrow it down.

We have a cruise booked for the beginning of the year.

Wow...She is cutting it close if it is next spring.

I would like to go on a cruise, but want to wait until my son is older. He is not very outgoing so he would be latched to me the entire time.

Sounds like a fun trip!

Im not sure what were doing for our family trip yet. My best friend and I are planning a weekend trip to Baltimore.

South Carolina is a dream place for everyone.  The Myrtle Beach is a great place for fun. As you can guess, plenty of beaches. The Hard Rock amusement park has just opened as well. Murrells Inlet, just south of Myrtle Beach, is world-famous for its sea food.
