As far back as I can remember, my family has always taken time each year to get away from the hectic everyday life & routine. Yes, we've always taken a "vacation". So, when Granddad and I eloped 27 1/2 years ago, we determined that we would take a small portion of time to set aside just for us, and then with our daughter ... even as "just the two of us", we were still our "family".
When our daughter was younger, most of our "vacations" were spent visiting our out-of-state families. But even still, we would take a week out of the year just for the three of us. So, as our family grew (with our son-in-law and with Lucy), we continue our family vacation tradition. And when Little Valentine enters our world next year, we will carry on our family vacation tradition.
All of that said to get to this post. Last week, Granddad took the girls on our family vacation. GI Joe wasn't able to leave his military duties, so it was just the four of us.
Some people have asked us why we go to the same place over and over again, year after year, sometimes twice a year. Our answer is simply this: some people are beach bums, some are mountain enthusiasts, and yet others are cruisers. But us?
Well, let's just say that these views are breathtaking to us ...
Yes, we are a Disney family. And the views just take our breaths away.
