For me it would have to be every family vacation we have taken, for so many reasons. Many of my fondest childhood memories are when my parents used to load us all up in the car for our yearly trek to the east coast. My Mother grew up in a small town called Lake Mohawk in New Jersey and my grandparents lived there until I was 8 or 9 years of age. When I first started blogging, I did an entry about how much I loved that place, to read click here ~> Endless summers of my youth
For my own family, we take several vacations a year, we take the kids up to the northern woods of Wisconsin for a week of fishing, relaxing and clearing our minds of every day intrusions. I love it because there are no interruptions, no phone, no television, no computers to loose hours on. It is days spent fishing, or laying around the beach and every night is a bon fire with the other families that book the same week we do year after year. We also take a trip down south to Kentucky to spend time with Jim's side of the family. They have a huge reunion every summer, we ride horses at his brothers and spend time at a private club with his oldest brother.....good time there! I have some rowdy sister in laws and we have way too much fun when we are together! lol
My favorite would have to be the trips that just Jim and I take with each other each year, it's good to get away from home, the kids and the daily stress that accompanies every day life. We also take a trip away from the house and each other once a year, where I travel with my girlfriends and he takes fishing trips with 'da guys' lol!.... yours, mine, ours and the family kind of vacations!
Just the memories and the photos alone make this for sure the best money we ever spent!
