I was having this discussion with DH. Visiting my family is at minimum a week long affair, since plane tickets are never less than $350 and it's at least 7-8 hours of flying to make it home. When you spend two full days traveling, it's not worth it unless you're going to be there at least 5 days.

So yes. We always end up having some of our vacation days spent visiting family...now whether or not it's relaxing is another story...

Cool! First of all, I'm jealous that you're getting taxes back! Lol

We are just going to to a short trip somewhere in April or so... Just a road trip. In September, 4 of my closest friends from Germany are visiting and we rented a house on the beach in September. And then we'll do another Fripp Trip to SC.

Next year we'll a family visit in Germany and maybe do some short trips in Europe.

Oh, I should also add that were going to a wedding in July to Kelowna, BC. It will be a nice little road trip. Im looking forward to the views and watching the landscape change. And BC has the cutest little hamlet towns. I love it.

Oh and we will be taking Tylers 300ZX Fairlady, and that thing is so much fun on the switchbacks and it has T-tops so we can take those out. Im excited.

We'd head up there for two weeks in august and do nothing but fish, swim, sit by campfires, etc. so we are taking Hannah up there for the first time. I'm excited about that. I just hope a week in a cottage with 7 people won't be too close quarters LOL.

Then at the end of september we are thinking of heading down to Florida again lol. We haven't visited my inlaws at their house in a long time so we are going to plan a trip to visit them for 4 or 5 days and then hit up Disney on the way home for a couple of days... since we have the annual passes we might as well make use of them lol.

then probably nothing again until December lol.

Visiting family counts as vacation right? LOL
You go to Disney more than any body I know LOL But I am jealous of the fact you get to go so much. I have been once when I was in 7th grade. I would LOVE to go back someday.

We are going back to England this summer which is a huge expense (getting married there again) so it will likely be that and Hawaii for this year.

That's what happens when you don't get paid half the year because you're student teaching...well, and you pay $10,000+ in tuition and buy a house.

I'm so ready for my life to stabilize so we can actually be accurate in our tax estimates!

This summer it looks like right now a week in St. Louis with some extended family members. Site seeing, etc etc and possibly staying through the 4th of July, so maybe a GREAT firework show.

We have 2, one week condo vacations paid for that we have each year, just haven't decided where yet. Maybe the beach (everything is booked right now, which is sort of to be expected, sadly) and talked about DC this summer.

So, St. Louis for sure. Whatever else, not sure yet. Haha.

My MIL got bitten by the vacation bug 2 weekends ago, so....

We're meeting my in-laws at Newark airport and flying into Marsh Harbor airport in the Bahamas. From there we are renting a boat and going to the same island/cottages we went on our honeymoon.
