Upcoming Vacation

Next week we are leaving for a short family vacation and a short kid free vacation. On Tuesday we will travel to Milton FL. to spend a few days with my family. It should be interesting since all of my sisters (ALL 5) will be in town. The last time we were all together was 12 years ago at my grandmothers funeral. My older sister and my mother do not get along well so things are usually tense when they are together. My older sister also leads a life-style that most of the family does not approve of, that alone makes our gatherings interesting. My youngest sister Mary will be bring her fiance Fred to meet everyone. Hopefully he is a good guy and not a looser like her ex.

Wednesday we will be having a birthday BBQ for Madilyn and Caleb at one of the local parks. Wednesday is Maddie’s 1st B-day, and Caleb’s 13th is on Thursday. We do not plan to have celebrations together every year but this seemed to make sense this year since we will be out of town and it will be hard to get the entire family together again the next day.

Thursday morning we are taking Caleb out to breakfast with just his grandparents. Hopefully this will help to make is day a little special.

Thursday afternoon, David and I will leave to spend a few days kid free. It has been 2 years since we have had a kid free vacation. We had one planned for last summer but those plans changed into this years Spring Break trip to Tybee Island when Madilyn made her unexpected arrival just days before we were to take the trip. The kids will get to stay with grandma, grandpa and great grandmother and have extra time with aunts, uncles and cousins while David and I have time to refresh and relax.

We are going to SanDestin Beach for 3 nights. We got the “Sun, Sand and Surf” package that includes

  • Beachview suite accommodations
  • Daily beach set-up, with umbrella and two chairs
  • Two refreshing cocktails daily
  • Panama Jack sunscreen, with your choice of SPF
  • Two Hilton Sandestin visors

I am so ready for this vacation but it is still a week away.
