Happy Aloha Friday!
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So on Fridays let’s take it easy on posting, too. Ask a simple question…nothing that requires a lengthy response. It’s a great way to make new blogging friends!
The school year is coming to a close. Summertime is imminent. So my question for you today is:
Do you plan a family vacation over the summer break?
Growing up, our family used to go camping every summer – we’d spend a week-and-a-half camping in the mountains, and a week-and-a-half camping at the ocean. I’m still trying to get the hubby on board with the whole ‘roughing it’ mode of camping, because it would be fun to have the Princess Nagger have that experience, too.
The last big vacation we took was to Punta Cana in 2007 – we plan a return trip back to the same resort in 2012 (provided the world doesn’t come to an end that year) so that we’ll keep the tradition of going there every five years (since we were there in 2002 for the first time). In between those two trips we took a cruise that was the cruise from hell – but that needs to be a post on its own. And at some point we want to take Princess Nagger to Disney World so she can hang with the mouse and experience the fun we’ve had ourselves there.
But for this year? We’re going to the exciting state of Iowa. Aren’t you jealous? My sister and her family live there, and they’ve come here to PA to visit us a few times over the years, so it’s high time we high tailed it to corn country to visit her in her neck of the woods.
Princess Nagger is looking forward to annoying her cousins and I’m looking forward to helping my sister celebrate her impending accomplishment of receiving her Bachelor’s Degree after juggling her own studies with homeschooling her two boys successfully. And at least she’s wired, so we’ll have internet connection when we go instead of our trip to Louisiana last year where I had to steal a weak signal from a neighbor. Ahem.
Do you plan an annual excursion with your family or just fly by the seat of your pants for the summer months?
