  1. Techy, those vacations will be the cornerstones to which your children build their family vacations as adults. Everything will be compared to what fun, excitement, and dismay you all have had. What a beautiful thing!! Tell the Big One aloe vera works wonders….

  2. What’s a segway?

    They may not realize it yet, but all their lives they will remember this vacation.

  4. That’s about how I remember our vacations when I was a teen. Glad they seemed to have a great time. 🙂

    Watching the sun RISE? Wow! Both my sister and I absolutely HATED sunrises! Then again, my dad’s idea of handling mornings on vacation was to get up WAY before sunrise, load up the car (we did all but one family vacation by car), drive for 90 minutes to 2 hours, then find a park bench or picnic table, fire up the old Coleman stove, and eat Spam and eggs or bacon and eggs while either freezing our butts off or sweating in the summer heat and humidity. With sunrise as a background. Sunsets were FAR more special! (And far calmer. Dad had a bug to do a certain number of miles per day regardless of destination, and tried to do it before noon. I think it was his Army tour in Korea!)

    • Ha! John, your dad sounds very much like mine. Every year we’d drive cross country and camp in a tent along the way. We were always up before sunrise on that first day of driving and Dad definitely wanted to get a certain number of hours in before stopping. That meant you sometimes sat with your legs tightly crossed while your tummy rumbled. Hey, but no one makes a bacon and egg breakfast over a campfire like my dad. I have such great memories of those trips.

      Techy, when teens come up with a list like that, you know they had a good time.
