We made it! We practically made it to summertime that is. I think a vacation is in order. I’m feeling a little warm, how about y’all?
Sure we didn’t have to wait until summer to break from work, but with our children on summer vacation and the warm sun shining, I always find summer an inviting time for respite.
Where will you vacation this summer? As for me… We are moving to Delaware this month [Another move! This time last year we moved to Texas from Japan.] and have decided to road trip to our destination, stopping in large cities (Dallas, Nashville, D.C., etc.) along the way. Our vacation will include hotels with pools (for our little ones) and attempts to find the best “hole-in-the-wall” restaurants (for us!).
