Hey!! I can only pick one of the options!!! (as opposed to a couple)

We just got back from a week in Wisconsin - we're going on vacation over the 4th of July for a week up north, and in August we're spending a couple of days in Vegas. Where's the option for that one???

John

I LIVE on vacation, J! Whoo Hoo!!!

I hope you have a wonderful time when you're here. (I'm sure it will be difficult, but I'm equally sure you're up to the challenge)...

I have no plans to get away... I usually do more of that during ski season.

My vaction plans are a little iffy right now. We normally go to Myrtle Beach every summer with my parents but we may not be able to get the place we normally stay at. So, if we can't do that mom wants us all to go to Tennesee. I do know that hubby, the kids & I are taking a few days to go to FIL's camper near Lake Murray during the week of the 4th. Hubby has to work at his company's sub-office in Columbia that week so he'll be taking the 45 minute or so drive there every day. The kids & I will be in the pool while he's at work.

So far the plan is.... to head down to Oregon on July 10. We're meeting Paul's bro and his wife at the Oregon Country fair. We'll spend the weeked with them and then take off camping for a few weeks. We haven't decided if we'll head to Eastern Oregon or to Canada or Montana or just come back to Washington and head over to the Eastern side of the state.

UNLESS, Paul gets the job that he interviewed for Friday. ( please cross your fingers that he does!!!) If he gets the job we'll just go hiking and camping during the weekends, close to home.

A long vacation sounds wonderful but, having my hubby employed full time at a real job with insurance and all the other benefits sounds even better to me. I'm tired of watching the bank account go down instead of UP. :) :)!!

I expect this vacation will be bittersweet. We are renting a house in the Outer Banks for the week of 4th of July, springing a surprise on a friend who isn't expecting us to be there (his wife is in on the surprise).

This fellow and Handy Husband were tight for years - co-leading Scout troops together and generally raising other kinds of he!!. He graciously allowed me to marry his buddy and move away from Memphis. We would see him when we went back for the BBQ contests for several years running, but haven't been back in a while now. He was recently diagnosed with cancer and isn't doing too well, so this may well be our last time together. I hope not.

It's sad that he's not doing well mudbug.. but, I bet you the joy of seeing you and your hubby will make him feel much better. Have a great time.

Thanks, pds. I think you are right. He's been asking us for ages to come down when they go to the OBX.
