Kids Don't Know How Lucky They Have It!!!!!

I have already mentioned that we take the kids to Disney pretty much every year (this will sadly be the 1st time we are skipping in 8 years)----for that alone they are LUCKY!!!!!!  But it does not end their folks!  My family owns a beach house in Ocean City, MD and we vacation there every year as well--more on that later!

But it gets even better for the 2 older ones!  Last year my in-laws (Anna and Russ) started taking the kids on mini vacations with them.  Not only do they get to go away with their grandparents alone on a great adventure----they GET TO PICK WHERE THEY GO!!!!!

Last year was Roseanna's turn to pick.  She loves blueberries so she said she wanted to go to Maine to pick blueberries.  Guess where they went?  YUP!  Maine!

This year was Russell's turn to pick.  He matter of factly stated that he wanted to see the Indians.  Why not?!  So a trip to North Carolina and Tennessee was planned.  They just got back a few days ago from their 4 days adventure loaded with stories, Indian headdresses and TONS of energy and excitement!  They stayed in Gaitlenburg and explored the Great Smokey Mountains, attended a powwow and gave the hotel pool a good workout.  Here are some of the photos from Roseanna's camera.

One day it is my hope that the kids realize how lucky they are for having been able to visit so many amazing places at such a young age!

See Ya Real Soon!

Very lucky kids! I love visiting Disney constantly, but I'm excited for the day that my son will have fun at other places.. at 1.5, I can't imagine a vacation place as doable as WDW!
