Family Vacation

It’s family vacation time. If you have to pack for young children, this means your workload increases by a factor of ten. So, you can call it a ‘vacation’ if you want, but everyone knows if you are a stay-at-home-mom, your work comes with you and then some. Since you are not going to be in your normal setting, you have to work hard to pack for as many worst-case-kid-scenarios that your trunk space will allow. It’s a little overwhelming but you do your best. You do your best because in your heart you know that the most important part of the vacation will be the family part. That makes all the extra work worth it. I’m only saying this because my kids are over the age of two. If you would have asked me how I felt about family vacations when they were two and under; well, let’s just say, all bets are off. With time comes wisdom, and with age (meaning that of my children) comes a whole lot less of your house you need to pack up to have a great vacation. Regardless, vacations are fun; even if you have to work really hard for them.

We are heading to Gatlinburg, TN to meet up with my sister and her family. I will try to post our adventures along the way. Be patient and know I am committed to daily posts (at least until my blog’s one-year anniversary) and will get them out when I am able. Thanks for your continued readership and I love each and every comment. Have a great day!

    1. We are having a good time. It’s nice to be together for such a long stretch of time. I have to admit, the boys are starting to fight quite a bit. I guess too much together time and all that.
