Blog Your Blessings Sunday - Vacation

Blog Your Blessings Sunday

We recently returned home safe and sound from our spring vacation that spanned from May 8 to 25 with a short 18 hr interval in between the two legs of our vacation.  The first part was spent in Las Vegas and the second at our vacation home in Florida.  Surprisingly it was less expensive to break up the trip than to do one trip with respect to flying.

It was a much needed vacation for both of us.  We went all out in Las Vegas so were exhausted and the brief stop at home didn't help but it was really a great time well spent with some of the best friends you could ever ask for.  Our luck was good there so we came home with a bit more than we went with.  Karma was on our side though.   The payoff was well worth it.  Our time spent at our vacation home was a bit laid back, sleeping late, sipping coffee and taking it easy.  A couple of our kids visited so the major attraction was Epcot at Disney World but other than that we really slowed down to the speed of life.  We managed to spend a couple of nights worth of entertainment with our musical friends (Ken Brady, et al) as well.  Both nights were incredible!

It seemed like we were in the airports and on planes a lot.  Flying to Las Vegas and the return trip was uneventful as was the flight to Tampa.  The return flight from Tampa wasn't a direct flight so we knew and were prepared for what was supposed to be a brief stop in Atlantic City without us deplanning.  When the pilot announced we were deplanning we knew that meant a delay.  The delay was due to the horrid storms going through where we would be landing.  The internet service in Atlantic City airport was about the closest thing to being out so we amused ourselves in a cute little restaurant.  Back on the plane three and a half hours later during which time I did not lose my cool once I edited a few pictures.  The pilot warned of bad turbulance but surprisingly the landing was rather decent given the adverse weather conditions. 

We are happy to be home but are already talking about our next vacation.  We are hoping to get down to our vacation home for a week during the summer but if not the fall plans are already in the works.  Our plans this year is to spend a total of three months at our vacation home so we still have a ways to go.  Vacations are wonderful breaks in the normal routine.  We are now at the age where longer vacations in warmer climates are a bit more appealing.  That's a good thing :)
