As many long time followers know, every year Amelia and I take a Mom-Daughter trip. It's something that I started when she was 3 years old on a whim and now it's our tradition that we both look forward to every spring break. Normally we pick a new place every year and have done Dallas, Lake Charles, Memphis, Hot Springs and a couple of other places but this year wanted to go back to Great Wolf Lodge. It's been 4 years since we went and now that she's older I can't wait to see how much fun we will have.
Having one child does make it easier for me to take this trip although I do save all year for it but I think it's something that is great for every family. If you don't have the money you can be creative and create your own vacation at your house. Have a theme night and let the kids get in on it! Camp indoors (if you are like me and bugs are not an option) or camp in the backyard. Have a dinner around the world with different snacks to try. Really you can do anything and those memories created will last a lifetime.
I look forward to sharing photos from our trip with you when I return but in the meantime there will not be a newsletter next week. You can still go to the website and keep up with all of the Easter events and fun around town. Don't miss out and share with me your vacation ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org, maybe I'll share it in a future newsletter.
