Tell me about your last vacation...
Our last vacation was 3 years ago. We went on a one month long roadtrip to Texas and back. We stopped in each state along the way and travelled through quite a bit of southern Texas. It was the best trip I've ever taken and it got DH to like travelling. Definitely plan on doing much more of that once we get our finances in better condition.
Our last vacation was a month long road trip last summer. Highlights include Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Craters of the Moon, Yosemite, my uncle's place in Los Angeles, Joshua Tree, Carlsbad Caverns and a friend's ranch.
We leave on Friday for the ranch, then a couple of days in Albuqueque to see an eclipse.
Our last little vacation trip was over Spring Break. Dh had the week off. We went down to visit his dad (1st time we'd been to fil's house) near Cincinnati. Ds had a blast riding on the tractor and lawn mower with Grandpa. Fil made amazing pork chops and mac & cheese for dinner. He gave us Easter baskets and 2 3ds games for ds. Ds loved the 84 inch flatscreen tv. Then ds, dh and I drove to a hotel near Columbus. Did a little shopping and swimming, and went to the Columbus zoo.
Last big vacation was a couple years ago. Sil's friend had a time share near Orlando and he let her have a week for really cheap. The resort was amazing. Dh couldn't go because of work, so I drove down with sil, mil, my mom and my ds. One of the resort's pools was closed for renovation that week so we got all activities free...build a bear, coloring shirts and hats, mini golf, etc. Awesome. We also got some free drink coupons. There were still at least 4 other pools open, plus we had fun on the beach. The day after we got there, it was Mother's Day...mil and sil went "out" but wouldn't say where. They went to the airport to pick up dh! He flew down to surprise me. (and I had to sit in a car with my inlaws?! not fair!). We saw a shuttle launch and went to Disney. The week was really fun, even though the inlaws were lame...didn't wanna do anything. The ride home sucked because sil got lost TWICE...she didn't believe mil when she said we were going the wrong way. We went HOURS out of our way, ended up spending a horrid night at a crappy motel, and were all exhausted and crabby. Mil had the worst gas on the way home and kept trying to blame it on ds, saying maybe he pooped himself (he was 4 and didn't do that anymore!). Dh, of course, flew home....the big jerk! :-)
We went to Virginia to Kings Dominion for Easter. It was a BLAST!!!
we went to lego land for my older ds 4th birthday. we also visited sea world and down town san deigo. My boys loved it. We went with my cousin (who is more of an aunt/mom figure) and her fiancee in their motor home.
it was a nice getaway to Mrtyle Beach, SC and i just needed a quick escape. I need a vacation now
I haven't had a vacation in about 10 years.
