I'm not to please about vacation this year because my grandson will have his 1st birthday while we are gone!!! If the weather gets bad on our return home I'll miss his first Christmas too.
I like being a grandma...I call him my little buddy. He has me tied right around his little pinkie.
My husband and I have taken his dad on vacation for the last two years during the month of December. We try to hide from the snow. LOL. My husband hates cold, as well as shoveling. I take pity on them and plan a whole month of travel. We drive about 4000 miles! I get the back seat and my father-in-law the front. This way I can do what ever I need to do to stay sane...I sleep a lot while they enjoy each others company. I take lots of pictures while on vacation. I still need to develop some from last year! The guys say I take too many pictures while I say, "You can never take enough!"
Our first stop is Branson, MO. We have never been to Branson before and I hear that the Christmas lights are fantastic. We booked a couple of shows too. After Branson we are going further south...Nacogdoches, TX (pronounced /ˌnækəˈdoʊtʃɪs/). Eventually we will end up at South Padre Island, TX for a week. This will be our 3rd holiday there with Dad. Jim and I have been there 5 years in a row this year! I think we are slowly becoming Winter Texans!!! Another "new" for us will be Grand Canyon Skywalk. Dad and Jim really want to see this engineering feet. On our way home we will stop at Lincoln, NE to visit Jim's two nephews and their family. We will be at Tombstone, AZ too...another yearly pilgrimage. We enjoy running into local Celebrity artist, Mark Brown. We've purchased three of his pieces that were absolutely amazing - he is an extremely generous person. My husband, Jim, loves the ribs at the Crystal Palace Saloon - you can also find Mark selling his pictures here. Tombstone is a very friendly place to visit.
May we always remember to support
