We've been on vacation!
I love that we have the blessing of being able to take our children on family vacations. We did that only very rarely when I was a child (once when I was 10 or so and not again until high school).
I don't feel deprived about it or have any negative feelings around it. I didn't know anyone who went away on vacations when I was a kid. Dads worked, sometimes Moms too, we kids went to school, played outside after school and during summer vacations. Normal kid life. :-)
We have taken some of our children on vacations far away (A went to NV/AZ/UT when he was 5) and all 3 went to FL a few times. Normally our trips are pretty local - within a few hours drive. Our most favorite vacation spot so far is Acadia. We drive the 4-5 hours up to Maine, camp, play around in the ocean, hike and sight see in the National Park, noodle around in the shops and eat ice cream. It's great!
I think camping is going to be really a challenge after this experience. :-)
