We did something wild and crazy (for us). Only one month out we made plans to join my parents on a trip somewhere warm.
The fact that the trip wasn't planned a year or more in advance (much more our slow and cautious speed) made it all the sweeter and quite exciting. If you tend to be a fuddy-duddy like I am, I recommend giving spontaneity a try. Just once. It's really not as terrifying as you might think.
It became a trip to celebrate our 10-year wedding anniversary that was six years ago. And we brought the kids along because trips without kids are SO six years ago. Right? Isn't that what people are saying now?
It was a chance to soak in some sun, spend quality time with my parents (for both us and our kids) and just be with our children.
Care to guess where we went? Hint: we drove. Another hint: we're known to drive far.
