    We are going to Topsail Island, NC in August. I can't decide whether to fly or drive yet. It's a 14hr drive or 2 1hr flights plus a 3hr drive.

    I'm here! I resigned right before A was born so I'm a SAHM now. Trying to clean, do laundry, cook, keep baby happy and find time play with the dogs is harder than my job as an RN was! Most days anyway!

    No vacations planned, although I'd love to get away! DH's job makes it hard to get vacation time. Vacation bids are done a year in advance so planning is tough!

    Well, I'm off! A and I are going to the mall. Momma needs shoes for my brothers wedding next weekend!

    What's vacation?! 

    I'm still working and am around, but noticed that it's been pretty quiet around here!  No vacations planned anytime soon for us.  We have lots going on this summer with my brother getting married so most of my vacation time will go to that and a few long weekends here and there.  I don't have much time to use after my maternity leave, plus I'm trying to build it back up for baby #2, whenever that happens.

    ETA:  Oh, and we're planning a big first birthday luau for DS in August :)

  • I'm here too, intermittently throughout the day if I get a chance. Still working but I'm jealous of my sister who is off for the summer starting tomorrow.
    We already went on our "big" vacation of the summer but we have a lot of small weekend things in the next few weeks.

    I'm taking a 3 day weekend this weekend and we're heading to Disneyland. DH and I are Disney freaks. It's a 6 hr drive from where we live and we will be driving during Bedtime for DS.

    My cousin turns 21 in two weeks so we'll be going to his 21st I'm Reno and we also have camping plans at the end of the month. And it's only 3.5 weeks before DS turns 2! So I'm planning his party.

    We are busy busy until the first weekend of July!

  • I am here for now!

    LO is napping, I have a phone interview at noon which I am not really looking forward to since I don't think I'm really interested in the job.

    i go back to work July 1.....no vacations for us since I will only have 6 days for the rest of the year. Not to mention trying to financially recover from my 6 weeks unpaid as well as a daycare bill seems impossible :(

    its ok though, I am hopeful next year we can rent a house and do a week away :)

    That is my dream vacation! Have fun!

    I'm off for the summer. I'm hoping I get called for interviews soon. As much as I love being home with H, it's best for us that I have a job right now to continue our pay off school loans plan.

    No vacation for us planned right now. We will probably make it down to the coast a time or two.

It was amazinggggg. But I'm hoping she gets more sleep today, bless her heart. I'm counting down the moments until I can go get her.

    I confess to lurking on the parenting board. It is very busy, and in the evening when I'm trying to put J down, it is a fun distraction.  

    Not really a vacation, but we are heading to new England for BILs wedding later this summer. I think we are going to be gone a week.

  • Hi!!!! I'm here Big Smile I wish I had the summers off, but nope, I work all year. It's been busy at work and we have three ladies out on maternity leave, so I am covering for them as well. Craziness, but it makes the day fly by.

    Next week, my Mom, Grayson and I are going to the Grand Canyon and Zion National Park. We are part camping in our camper, part staying in a cabin and part staying in a hotel, as the camp sites fill up so fast in the summer. I am SO excited!

  • Here!  I *try* to check-in once a day.  Sometimes I go a day or two now though since it's finally SUMMER and the kids started their music class, swimming lessons and E started her art class and toddler cooking class (so flippin' cute!).  We spent all morning/early afternoon today at the pool with a couple of my mom friends and their kids (total 8 kids ages 2 and under!!!) and it was SO FUN.  We've been keeping busy and I've been loving every second of it :)  

    Other than a trip up north to the lake I don't think we're going to do anything *big* this summer.  I decided I didn't want to leave the kids for our anniversary so we're only going to be spending a night away.  Maybe next year ;)  

    Happy Tuesday!

  • I'm here and still SAHM, but just have been busier than usual.  M's keeping me busier and busier every day!

    My parents are finally coming in August for a couple of days.  My dad still hasn't met M yet, and my mom only saw him when he was born back in Nov last year.  Don't know what their deal is, seems like they're not interested in having a relationship with their one and only grandchild.  I'm hurt but I'm keeping my mouth shut. 

    Well, my b-day is this summer and it's a milestone one.  When DH had his milestone b-day last year, I sent him off to Amsterdam w/MIL (I paid for his ticket w/my airline miles).  I was supposed to go with them, but I ended up with OHSS after ET, and my RE didn't want me traveling.  So in a way, DH owes me something BIG for my b-day this year, but he's never a person who can come up with any planning (i'm the social event director in this household), so who knows.

    I kind of want to go to Montreal, but I guess I need to get M a passport first!
