Is it too early to start thinking about summer vacations? Nah. It takes some planning! Some foresight! B and I took the plunge the other night into: 1. Where should we go? and 2. Where should we stay? and 3. How on earth do we find a place to stay? That's always the hardest part it seems, for us anyway.
Neither of us are feeling motivated (at the moment, anyway) to take a big trip this year with the kids involving major time changes and travel time. And let me tell you: you need some motivation if you're going to undertake something like that with three small ones! So, we are looking closer to home (but not too close!) and trying to figure out where to go. It's a wee bit overwhelming as there are so many incredible places to visit. I would personally rather come across an awesome place to stay and have that be the driving factor. You know, one of those "my friend's aunt has this beautiful house on the lake that never gets used, and you should really see it...." In other words, I hate going on VRBO and trying to find somewhere to stay. Too overwhelming! Too untrustworthy!
Also, where is your ultimate summer vacation? A house on the lake? A beach rental? Camping in the Sequoias? A lodge somewhere? Tell us, please!
