Last August to the Oregon coast. My dad paid for all of our hotel rooms (us, my sister and her fam, and he and his wife and daughter). We were there for 8 days and it was fabulous. We used to go every year when we were kids but it had been something like 13 years since all of us kids had gone together. We had so much fun. I absolutely love the coast and woud love to have a home there someday!!

Last summer we went to Moody Gardens for a few days. Toured the pyramids: rainforest, discovery & the aquarium. Played in the waterpark, rode the paddleboat, went looking for seashells along the beach. Saw an I-Max movie about space, visited the dinosaur exhibition, played at the really neat park across from our hotel and ate some yummy seafood at Landry's. We had a blast!!

Last Feburary we went to PA for a day to look at dh's hometown and we go to New J for New Years but other than that we havn't really been on a family vacation. But we are leaving in exactly 4 weeks to go to Fla. I am so excited about it. We will be going to Disney world, Sea World, Universal, and Gator land. I can't wait!!!!!!

Are we allowed to take a family vacation?! LOL DH and I took a vacation to Michigan's U.P. just after we got married over 10 years ago...and even that was so he could stand up in a friend's wedding! We did make a few stops along the way home, like in Mackinac Island, at least :) We've just never seemed to have the money/time off work to actually *go* somewhere...

we've never been able to go on vacation as a family...although some people might say living in a tropical island is enough of a vacation, lol. i'm hoping to make it to disneyland next year, though. my in-laws live in california.

We took a quick weekend trip to Indianapolis this past weekend. Met up with the in-laws there. (We do weekend things about once every 6 weeks or so. Dh's parents live 10 hrs away and they fly us to Michigan about that often to visit.) The last "big" trip we took was a Disney Cruise the first week in February. We went with dh's whole family. (My in-laws like to take the whole gang to something "Disney" every year.) We happened to be on the boat on Augusta's 7th b-day and Emeline's 3rd b-day. (Their b-days are a day apart.) We had stops in Nassau, Bahamas and then Castaway Cay, Disney's private island in the Bahamas. It was great and we would do it again in a heartbeat!!
