Vacations, anyone??

For many of us summer is just around the corner and with it (hopefully) comes vacation season. So, I thought I'd ask about vacations. Do you have one planned for this year? What was your favorite vacation? Any funny vacay stories to share??

I'll start:

This year I hope DH and I will get to go for a week's vacation to Gettysburg, PA. It's the vacation we were supposed to take last year but had to cancel when DH buggered up his leg at work. However, this year I've got my fingers crossed for everyone to be healthy and ready to go when the time comes!

We'll probably head out the first or second week in Sept. so that we can celebrate our anniversary at the same time. While we're there we'll take a tour into Washington D.C. as well as hitting Hershey (c'mon, it's the chocolate city...we HAVE to go), and hopefully we'll also have time to fit in a visit to Lancaster County and the battlefield at Antietam.

Unfortunately our big vacation for the year is already over! We went on a cruise to Grand Caymen & Calica, Mexico in March with 8 other couples & we had a super great time! Now all that's left are the pictures & many awesome memories!!

Every year we go to Lake Cumberland in Kentucky with friends. We are planning to go in August. I love vacation!!!

We always go to the beach for a week for the Fourth of July. We have so much fun. We always plan a bunch of stuff to do. We stay right on the beach so when we are watching the fireworks, we go in our room because its freezing at night (Thats Oregon for ya lol)

Wow , I have to start planning it. It will be here before I know it!

No real vacation for myself or my fiance. We're keeping the strings tight for our house and our wedding, but we did take our stimulus checks and spend them on a honeymoon to the Bahamas!

I'm not sure exactly what we are doing yet...Last year we took our daughter to South Dakota. We went to Bear Country USA and also Mount Rushmore. This year we may go to the Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park for some camping and hiking.

We might take a long weekend to Orland in July if the economy doesn't take a worse nose dive (and if I still have a job at that time!)

We just got back home from being in Concord, North Carolina for the NASCAR All Star Race this past weekend. Hopefully, we will be hitting the Gulf Coast of AL/FL this Fall.
