Do you take vacations without kids?

Dh and I had a weekend away last October and we are doing the same this year. It's hopefully going to an annual thing.

We don't do a lot of vacations with the kids but now that the youngest is 5 yes old my goal is to do a week vacation every summer.

Do you take vacations without kids? Where do you like to go?

I'm too afraid of nature to camp, lol! It sounds so romantic but scary to me :/

Yes. It took me almost 4 years to convince DH it was morally acceptable. Weve done two so far, only weekend trips. The longest was this year, three days and two nights away. We usually find a hotel in a random town then find things to do once we get there.

It would have been better if I hadn't gotten sick halfway through. LOL.

It is surprising how some parents feel its wrong to take vacations. That's good you were able to convince him.

    No we don't & we won't! We feel like we only have our kids for 18yrs and we will have all the time after they are out of the house to go on vacation by ourselves.
