Wonderland. To me this would be Heaven as a child. A vacation spot to smile about.
I would take the tiny honeymoon sweet in the color of orange.
We try to vacation every year, but as prices of airline tickets get higher it seems harder and harder. As a child we grew up in a spot where other people came to visit.
A traveler's paradise.
I don't really remember traveling in the summer as I got older. My parents were comfortable in their area of the world. Why travel when you live in paradise?
I on the other hand, right now, dream of travel....
it seems almost continuously, but I have this guilt of going anywhere without the kids.
Yet, when we do travel with the kids it often appears they could really care less about the actual vacation spot. They enjoy the process, but once there it is always, "is this it?"
Even Disney leaves them asking, "is this all we are doing?"
So, is it ok to travel without the kids?
I feel it is something my marriage could use, desperately.
I was here, looking at plane tickets for all of us as a family and just discovered that for the price for all of us to go to our "normal" vacation spot, Bobby and I could take a trip to Europe with $$$ to spare.
We could take a trip anywhere, actually.
But...will the kids be ok with it?
What is this parental guilt I have?
Does anyone else have it?
