TBB Asks - Vacation Edition

The Blended Blog gals are at it again and I so enjoy joining up with them the first Monday of every month.  
1. Will you go on a a summer vacation this year?
Well, not per say but we've/I've been on plenty of trips this year.  We did go to Atlanta a couple of weeks ago to see Tommy's sisters and it was like a vacation because we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  We'll go to Oklahoma the end of July and then to Virginia in September.  We're calling them trips but I guess we could call them vacations as well.

2. Do nothing but relax or a pack it all in vacation?
I enjoy some relaxation but I like to "pack it all in" mostly.  I enjoy "going and doing."  

3. What month do you like to vacation?
It doesn't really matter, we're free to go most any time.  But, we sure don't care to go to hard winter areas in the winter and to any place hotter than right here in Louisiana in the summer. 

4. Cruise: YES or NO?
A definite YES!  We've been on an Alaskan Cruise and a Canadian Cruise.  They are two of , our most favorite trips for sure.  One was with Celebrity and one was with Holland America.  We enjoyed Holland America the best because a lot fewer folks on board.

5. Favorite vacation tradition?
I'm not sure we've ever had a vacation tradition, never even thought about it. 

6. Most memorable vacation? 



Well, our first trip to Disney was in 1986, the kids were 7 and almost 10.  AND, I thought that we had to have matching outfits.  And, believe it or not, no one argued and was glad to wear them.  Now, when they see these pictures they all almost croak and cannot believe that I "made" them dress like that. Everyone thought we were the cutest family there. ~big chuckle~

7. Pack light or Pack it all?
I would have to say, pack it all.  I mean, it seems that I am taking the entire house every time we go anywhere.  I have so many things that I take "just in case."  And, I don't worry with taking clothes that can be worn with more than one top or bottom and jewelry that I can wear with everything and shoes that go with everything.  It's crazy but it's just the way I pack.

8. Hotel, Condo or House? 
We've done it all and it all depends on how long we will be staying and if we are with the entire family or just Hubby and myself.  A condo is great but if it's just the two of us, we generally just stay in a hotel.

9. Favorite thing(s) to eat on vacation? 
Breakfast is my favorite meal while on vacation.  I never eat breakfast but I so enjoy it when traveling.  I like to eat a big breakfast and then not worry with eating again until mid to late afternoon.  I love cheesy scrambled eggs, crispy fried bacon and a big fat biscuit!

10. Warm or Cold Destinations?
I prefer warm, not hot though.  We went to Alaska in late August and the weather was just about perfect.  A tad chilly in the mornings and late afternoons and absolutely perfect the rest of the day.  We chose to go in August for that very reason because, as you know, it can be bone chillin' there.

As we prepare to celebrate the 4th of July this week may you each be blessed and always know what a privilege it is to live in our great country.

NOTE:  I'm taking a brief break from blogging until July 15th.  Our daughter will be coming in with the boys next weekend for several days and I'll be busy preparing for their visit the rest of this week.  And, then I'll be enjoying their time here.  See you later!!!

  3. Awe, I know you will enjoy your daughters and the grands Lea. Nothing like spending time with the family. Especially those grandbabies. I would like to go on an Alaskan cruise one day. But I also want to go on an Hawaiian cruise too. Sounds so fun. Happy 4th and enjoy your break. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  5. What a HOOT! Those outfits are adorable even today! I think today people are a bit to serious and stuffy. I would love to wear matching family outfits, (our children are all grown, with families of their own).
    Enjoy your family time! You should bring out those outfits, just for laughs.

  8. I'm just a wee bit late in getting around to my favorite blogs this week, and yours was so much fun. Some families still all dress alike for these Disney trips. I think you just ahead of your time. Enjoy your sweet family's visit.

  10. We definitely have things in common! I don't usually eat breakfast (other than a cup of coffee) but when on vacation I LOVE BREAKFAST OUT!! And when I pack...oh my! I take everything but the kitchen sink. Hubby says we will never be able to afford to fly anywhere because they'd charge us so much for just my shoes!!! Enjoy your family, especially the grandkids but we will miss you.
