What’s New? Summer, that’s what!
*singing* Summertime, summertime, sum sum summertime, summertiiiiiiiiiiiime!
It’s officially summertime for us. The kids are out of school and we are thinking it’s about time for our annual summer vacation from the wonderful world of kids belts. We are taking the kids to Busch Gardens this year, but instead of driving, we are making the whole vacation an experience including the travel. This year, we are taking a train to our destination. It would have taken almost 3 hours by car, assuming there is no traffic, or 3 hours by train. Well, with gas prices the way they are, the train made the most sense.
The kids are super excited, as am I. The idea of travelling by train instead of car seems so much more relaxing. The kids can get up and move around and we can play games with them. Overall, I think it will be a much more pleasurable time.
I have to say, I am thoroughly excited to see how the kids will like Busch Gardens. They have always loved Disney, but with them both getting a little older, I think they will really enjoy this park. I’m not sure that they will be riding the crazy roller coasters, mama’s heart couldn’t take that, but they will love all of the animals and scenery and all of the other rides.
They hubby and I are so looking forward to getting away, too. Even though it’s only about 3 hours from home, it’s far enough to be away from the office and the dredges of housework… bleh…
What are your summer plans? Anything exciting planned? Do you do keep it low key and plan a “stay-cation” or do you go all out and plan an all expenses paid trip to the Bahamas or are you somewhere in between? Whatever you are planning for this summer, I wish you nothing but the best, safe travels and above all, great quality time with the family.
