Our Hostess this week is Alison and here is her assignment: Vacations...this is the time of year when most of us go on vacations. Show us and/or tell us about your favorite vacation - where you went, what you did, etc. Pictures would be great. Let's all take a trip around a the world via our FM friends!!
As a family we have had 2 wonderful vacations other than all the other years we have gone camping. Not to make the camping trips sound bad or anything, because we love to do that. But these 2 particular vacations were kinda special.
(I can't give you pictures of these trips, because my scanner will not work. I can give you the links to give you and idea.)
7 years ago we won a trip to the Smoky Mountains of Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We stayed in a very fancy hotel that had an indoor swimming pool, a gym, a spa, and a sauna. Our room was as huge as most apartments. We had the time of our lives! We did get out of the hotel a little and checked out Dolly Wood and a few other wonderful sites, but our kids had more fun at the hotel.
Our other wonderful trip was last year. I wasn't happy about it at first, because it was not our planned trip, but it landed up being Super Fantastic! Last February I had booked us a hotel in Orlando, Fl for 4 days and 3 nights, and then I had booked a hotel a little further down in Florida on a beach. I also was going to get to meet Amy from the foil hat, another home school, blogging momma. My van got put in the shop and it took them over 3 months to get my van fixed. It meant I couldn’t get to go to Florida, one place I have always wanted to go. I was madder than a wet hen! My momma let us use her car to take the kids to a water park in Philadelphia, Ms. It wasn’t Florida, but we had a time of our life! I'm not sure what our vacation is looking for this year since Dan hasn't had much work and I can't stay away from momma very long, but we are hoping to go back to Philadelphia this year.
My dream vacation would be to take a year to and travel the world!
