We're taking a family vacation this year....next month...in about 6 weeks.
I am SUPER excited for this trip. I look forward to it everyday. My happiness increases tenfold when I think of my children's laughter and joy that I hope (and expect) will come rolling out numerous times a day once we reach our destination....which, by the way, is Walt Disney World!!
I haven't taken a real vacation since Megan was born. A few multi-day trips here and there, the annual summer trip to the lake...but this is like a serious, "saved for a year to pay for it" vacation. Now, thanks to the year of saving and the months of planning...the happiness is one calendar flip away. I thought it would be a good idea to start recording some of the planning and preparation leading up to this trip. So coming up soon, look for posts on itinerary, mentally preparing for travelling with a 6 year old and a 4 year old, tips and tricks for the car (oh yeah - we're driving), budgeting, and more!
