Vacation Planning for March
It has become something of a tradition to take mini trips during my birthday month. We can't really go very far right now, distance-wise, but we try to take little day trips that cost less money and are more convenient. So, I wasn't too surprised to see this card yesterday evening, since we had just booked a hotel for two days a couple hours prior.
Later this month, I'm visiting three of my friends in one city who live a couple of hours away. Rather than drive four hours in one day, or even stay one night, we're taking a family trip and staying two nights at a hotel with a nice pool where my husband and daughter can swim. My daughter is especially thrilled about it, and my husband seems to enjoy it, too. I get to visit with my friends while they hang out, swim and figure out other local activities that are kid-friendly.
I also plan to visit with my siblings, hopefully, as a couple of them have spring break from school; one of them is a professor and has most of the month off in March for the spring break, and another is going to school nearby and has a week off--though I actually think it's not until a week or so after my daughter's spring break. Anyyyyway. We plan to visit with my older sis and her baby and husband one of those days, and I might also visit a friend in Wyoming, too. So there are several ideas for little day and stay-cations floating around. In the midst of that, I tend to have a traditional shared birthday party with my dad.
The image on this card always amuses me. This fairy looks snobby/pissed/bored with her parrot companion. Don't let that happen to you! ;)
