    I almost spaced it this time!

    Are you going anywhere for vacation this summer?

    Summer is over here, but we aren'y going anywhere next summer either. I am being forced to take holidays at work over the next few months (they see 8 weeks of leave as excessive, and I've already taken 4 weeks this year to extend out my maternity leave) but hubby has no chance of getting time off. We will take DS to the zoo around his birthday though which will be in some of my time off.

    We have a ton of plans. On my son's last day of school we are heading to Strasburg Pennsylvania, we have a great B&B we stay in and we go see the trains!

    Then we have a weekend or two booked at my dad's in Fire Island.

    In mid-August we are heading to British Columbia, for my Mom's wedding. All my siblings and their kids are coming and we are renting a big house.

    Then about two weeks later, my husband and I are going away alone to celebrate our 10th anniversary....in Amsterdam!

    I think that's enough.

    We have quite a few plans too. I have summers off so that makes it a bit easier.

    Right after the girls' recital (mid June) we're going to the beach to stay for a week. We'll be right down the road from you Lana! My inlaws are renting a huge house down there and invited us to crash it. Gotta love free vacations at the beach!

    Shortly after we get back we're heading to Alana's National dance competition in Orlando. We'll be staying at the Peabody for 4 nights and just hanging out in Orlando. We'll be there for the 4th and plan on going to Disney's Boardwalk to see the fireworks.

    Mid July we're heading to Tennessee for a week to camp in the mountains. We've done this twice before and it is so much fun. We go with my parents and share a campsite - they have a camper and we have a tent. Great memories!

    We had such a good time in South Dakota last year that I think we are going to take another road trip there this summer in mid July. T loved it last year, and I think it will be even better this year. We also have 3 weddings this summer (3 in a row!) but that won't involve any travel. They are all in town.

    I'm super jealous. I ahve always wanted the kind of family that does the big get together all in one house thing a la the movie Dan in Real Life. My family would slowly kill each other off.

    Cool. We are thinking of going to Disney for the 4th. What beach are you staying at? Siesta Key?


    As for us, we are Floridians so the beach and Disney for us.

    We go to Manasota Key every year. You live in Sarasota right? I love the beaches there - so natural and so pretty. Last year we spent a lot of time kayaking in the bay and enjoying the dolphins and manatees.

    I haven't been to Disney on the 4th since I was a kid. I imagine it'll be pretty crowded but hopefully the Boardwalk won't be too bad.

    Yep. We have a ton planned. Michael gets two vacations to Germany and Hawaii for work and for two weeks while he's gone, I'll be going to Lake Charles, LA and I think for the 4th Jason and I may go to Maxwell AFB. Then we'll be in Atlanta for at least a four day trip and then North Carolina for a wedding/visit family in August. We do Disney in September and I'll probably go to Galveston, TX for a weekend in June.

    AND I go on a cruise tomorrow!!!!

    We used to do the big families in a house thing and then once we grew up it just kind of tapered off. I miss it.
