Do you have any vacations planned this year or any that you hope to take?


Alot is hinging on finances this year. Fencing in the yard is a priority so whatever is left over from taxes will go to dental work and vacations I think. We are hoping to do a longer trip to Long Beach Island this summer if they are recovered from Hurricane Sandy. We were hoping to do a road trip to Disney World but that may have to wait until next year.

We are hopefully going on a vacation in June, this year we are going to go the mountains I think (Lake Harmony/Poconos) it's close enough and honestly a week at the beach is too much for me, the last time we went it was about as relaxing as having a heart attack lol of course the kids are older now so maybe it would be better. We are looking for something more relaxing and laid back though, so at the lake we can fish, hike, swim and there are water parks and casinos in the area. Hoping to rent a house with my parents/family and soak in some fresh mountain air. We will likely do a few weekend trips to LBI, DHs friend lives there so we try to get down to see them at least once....I am currently pricing out houses to rent on the lake, there are some sweet cribs up there! ha!

Our main vacation this year is the last two weeks of August, we're going back to Florida/Disney.

I have a mini vacation scheduled at Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls for 3 days at the end of April.

Cyndee I have an old friend that spends a lot of time up there, they are actually buying a house there this summer so she has given me some sites and areas to check out, I am just waiting to book to make sure I get the time off work, weekly rentals can be anywhere from about $800 to upwards of $3000 if you are right on the lakefront, I kinda want something in the middle of that price range, I am sure I will be able to find something, when I do I will let you know, maybe you guys could come up and stay with us for a couple of days while we are there! would be fun!

We are going to Las Vegas over spring break in March. Rob & Adrea compete in the national championships for taekwondo there so we're just making it a vacation also.

Then in July we're going up to Washington state to visit our families for 2 weeks.

With the baby coming this summer, I don't think we'll be doing any major vacations. I do plan on taking London to Disneyland in February or March (depending on when my morning sickness decides to finally disappear completely) but it will just be a day trip. My friends also want to do a weekend at Brianna's mountain cabin. It is about 2 1/2 hours away and my friends want to do it this summer so it will kinda depend on if my doctor gives me th a-okay. Finally, my mom will be coming this summer and maaaaaybe for Spring break. She has a week at a timeshare in Ventura (not too far from us) so I plan on staying with her in the beach house like a mini vacation. lol My 10 year high school reunion is this summer but I don't think I'll be allowed to fly by that point. So yeah, that's about it! We just had our big vacation over the summer though so I think I'll be ok for a while.

Nothing major planned for the year. We most likely won't even be doing Michigan for Christmas. I'm sure we'll end up doing something at some point since we always get cabin fever, but no idea what or when. I'm going to try to get to SF for my mid-year meeting again, but that's like 3 straight days of work and boozing and I'll be 32-ish weeks by then, so I may just not go.

I'm going to California the first week of March for a conference. It's work, but it's also a lot of fun so it's kind of a vacation.

DH is coming with me to Rollercon in Las Vegas the first week of August, it's 5 days of roller derby and partying. Obviously not kid friendly LOL

Not sure what we're doing for a family vacation. Hopefully will get away camping or to a cottage for a long weekend this summer. We plan to head to Florida next winter.

We have a few things planned.


Arizona/Sedona for a few days end of April.

Montreal in June to visit my grandparents and my brother is doing a 1/2 ironman up there.

We are renting an rv again in July (if we haven't found a good used one yet by then to buy) and heading to the June lake/Yosemite area again. We really enjoyed that last summer.

I don't think we are going to do anything huge. We might just do something local for a long weekend. Brother in law is getting married in July so we may travel up to VA for that and we also may get a new car soon so we don't think we will splurge this year. Last year instead of vacation we bough annual passes to Disney so we are still taking advantage of that until they expire in June.

We will probably go to Cape May for a week or so at some point. It was nicely spared from Sandy, and we have free use of my uncles house at cape may point. It's nice to take our bikes down and just enjoy to old town feel of the area. We also could use my parents timeshare for no cost so that's alwAys an option as there are over 75 places we could go, but I am not sure what kind of time I will be able to get off of work. I'd love to go down to the outer banks or edisto island SC. We'll see. Seems too far off to even think about it yet!!

Not much since I'll be having a baby in June. We may take a long weekend to my sister's beach house. Other than that, we will have our week at our Myrtle Beach time share around my birthday and Labor Day.
