Where are you going on vacation this year?

We don't travel all that much, though it's not for lack of wanting to. It's mostly that prior to 2006, our kids were still so young and traveling was too much of a burden than anything else. Now that they are a little older, it's a bit easier, but generally still leaves me needing a vacation from the vacation.

We were lucky that in 2006, I won a trip to Disney World. How fantastic that I was able to take my kids to such a magical place, with practically no money out-of-pocket. We came back home with the WDW-Bug, and the itch to go back was bad.

We knew we couldn't swing it yearly, and had hopes of possibly making Disney World our every-other-year family vacation. Around this time, my folks let us know that the family would be going again - on them. So we packed up the car last September and headed back to the World. It was my folks first time there, and I think they came back with the Bug, too. (even though I thought for sure that they'd feel once was enough)

They've mentioned doing it again (though not paying, darn! LOL!), and we are hopeful to make our every-other-year trip in 2010.

Since this year is an "off" year and that I took a pretty drastic paycut, things will probably be very mild this year (much like many other years).

We are hoping to take a trip later this summer to Connecticut to see family and venture to NYC while there. Other than that, this summer is wide open, and hubby needs to schedule his vacation time with work. Now to decide when to take off and what to do.

Any ideas? What are your plans this summer?

I'm not really sure we are going anywhere specific this year...depends on Bry's TDY schedule. If he goes down to the Cape or ever to Jacksonville, J and I will definitely take a long weekend there. Otherwise, maybe a camping trip or 2 before it gets too hot....we do live 15 minutes from the beach, so no need to *go* there.
