I know I want to know. LOL
We ♥ Our Vacations
I actually just got back from the island of Turcs & Caicos. I have been there a few times before about 10 years ago when I was a travel agent & this was my first time away without my children & it is my favorite beach so I knew I wanted to go back with my husband.
Susie you are so curious! My husband and I will be vacationing at the Gulf again, IF, the rains go away and there isn't a hurricane warning. We rent a beautiful home right on the Gulf and just love it. Hoping we don't have to cancel.
Have no vacay planned yet - due to elderly parents in failing health--but I did take a chartered bus trip last Sat. to northern Indiana (I live in the central part). We visited quilt gardens--gardens that are planted with flowers that make a quilt pattern. Even
though I am not a quilter (& not a very good gardener, either), it was a great trip!
Hope all of you can enjoy at least a little getaway this summer!
We're going out West later in the summer. Planning on mainly staying in Montana and Wyoming. It's so beautiful there and we love those mountains. We are hoping to retire out there in the future and are always looking for something to buy. Maybe this trip we will find it!
My hubbie and I have been there several times Faith and it is so beautiful there! I wish we were going back this year. Post pics when you get back!
We got back a week ago, we went to Mammoth Mountain just outside of Yosemite for a week of family camping. There were only ten of us this time (down about 6)but we had fun. There were three states represented, California, Texas and Arizona. I will post a few pics if anyone is interested. If you are on fb you know I already posted a ton on there LOL!! My husband and I are going to Monterey in early August for four days with his job (bonus thing), we are hoping for good weather so we can go kayaking in the ocean.
Wishing you all fun adventures!
Going to take a look at your pics Re. Sounds like fun!
Susie, are you going to tell us where you are going? Or, are you going to avoid answering like you usually do. HEHE
I am sooooooooooo enjoying reading what all of my pink sisters are going to do this summer and what they have already done for vacation.
Thank you all so much for sharing this with us! I always like to bring a smile, a memory, or, just some fun to all of us! Is it working?
I am interested in your pics Re, so, I am going to go see if you posted them yet. Kayaking is great! My hubby and I have done it a lot and it really is fun.
Vegas in a few weeks. My sister and brothers are spread from coast to coast so we try to make a trip once a year and all be together. It is getting to be even more important as we are all getting older and our mother is 87!
Are you going to tell us Susie where you are going?

Staying in Alaska ..... land of the midnite sun in summer! Fishing, dipnetting, camping etc There are tons of tourists and motorhomes here in summer our Kenai River is world famous for its big salmon! Just got backfrom a few days in Vegas ... saw Celine Dion show there.....Sue D
Love your pics Re! That looks like so much fun!
Now planning next goal, I wanted an Alaskan Cruise, my boys want fishing, and sisters and friends are leaning towards a ladies only cduise without their husbands. It will need to be October and a short flight.
California was beautiful, missed the June gloom, spent needed time with family and friends. Next one will be pure fun. just have convince onco of another break:)))
We have a trip all planned for Feb...we're going to the Dominican Republic with my husbands brother and wife and and others...it's a private resort on the Island..they've been there and talked us into it...their pictures are beautiful! Each villa has it's own pool ( won't have to worry about what I look like being in a bathing suit..I've lost 25 pounds and I'm really thin now I look scarecrow like ...lol) and private a beach with beach BEDS !!!! that's what grabbed me!... Lying on the beach in a canopied bed!!!! We did purchase travel insurance in case I'm unable to go...but if I'm doing as well then as I am now, it's a go! I was apprehensive at first, planning that far in advance but what the heck!!.... gives me something to look forward to.....
My hubby even booked first class tickets plane tickets all the way so I would be more comfortable...gotta love that man! He's my rock!
Good question..be fun reading everyone's posts...we need more like this!
My husband and I are going to be in Florida for vacation this year. We've already been to California this year on another trip. Yes, we take a lot of vacations! LOL
Family drove to Anchorage with me for my last chemo and we drove to Seward when I was done with that. Beautiful road trip and lots of fun before I start my herceptin, which I hear is pretty easy compared to chemo
Off to Lowell, Idaho to visit my aunt and uncle. Lowell is a tiny town (population 12) located near the beautiful mountains of the Selway Bitterroot Widlerness area. Lovely aromatic cedar trees, clear rivers, lots of deer and moose. Hoping to at least get out of our humidity--not sure if the heat will be better or not? Looks like it has been a hot summer in the Northwest this year.
going to new hampshire lake winnepausakee (sp) for a week yikes cant believe its almost july 4th I feel like summer just started
P.S. Here is a photo of where I'll be. The home on the left is Wendy (sister) and hubbie's vacation home. That's where we usually stay. The house is on the Selway River--a wild and scenic river.
we are going to disney world for 10 fun filled days in the sun starting august 24th.
I hope everyone has a great time on there trips.
We have a girls week planned in a couple of weeks. My daughter, a good friend, her daughter and I will be going to her family home in Montana. They have a house right on Flathead Lake, and we are planning only swimming, BBQs, resting, just hanging out for a week.
And what are your plans my friend?
Going to South Bend to drop my son off for his Freshman year of college. Sigh :( I'll miss him.
My vacation this year will be the first week I can stay home without having to go to any medical appointments. I'm shooting for the week starting July 30. Hopefully that will be the first week without a medical appointment since November of last year.
It's so nice to read where everyone has been and is going still. We're leaving in a couple of weeks to go to Alabama, but, not sure now if it will be alright with the Hurricane's coming in. We've called the owner of the home we rented and they said we can get our deposit back if we want since they are having such in-climate weather now and still may be then. Really glad to know that! So, we may be going the opposite direction instead. It really doesn't matter as wherever we go, my husband and I always have a wonderful time.
I forgot to mention we also went on a cruise to Hawaii last April, lots of fun! I will post pics this afternoon. Have fun on all your planned vacations!
Cruise time for me We are going on a cruise to St. Thomas and St. Maarten. I'm also going to Treasure Island for a couple of days with my oldest son so I can play on the beach with my grandkids. He said they will have more fun playing with Grandma then they will with Mommy & Daddy.
Susie.......still waiting for your answer!
I leave in 1 week for a cruise to the Carribean. My last one a month ago had to be canceled due to my mother's health. The cruise line did refund most of my cruise since we were unable to go. We had our room keys and everything when my brother called to tell me my mother had taken a turn for the worse. She passed the day after I got back. It is really bittersweet. The month of May was one of the worst I've ever had including my BC diagnosis and treatment. Thanks for listening.
I am so terribly sorry about your Mother's passing....it's incredibly hard to lose a Mother...to me it was like losing the only person who loves us unconditionally....I pray that the loving memories of her will help to sustain you and your family at this sad time.....
Thank you so much Nancy. I really appreciate it. It has been so hard especially when I'm pretty sure there were problems with her intial doctors. I haven't had the heart to delete her numbers from my cell phone yet.
I am so sorry for your loss Janie. I can't imagine losing my Mom. Sending you an extra big hug!
Janie: so sorry to hear....just remember the good times...it's hard i know..My dad died when I was 19 and my mom 5 yrs ago..but I try to remember the good and let the bad go...
Have a great time...
So excited! My hubby rented us a beautiful cabin in the mountains! I've only seen pictures of it, but, it looks absolutely amazing and in such a romantic, beautiful setting!
Praying you can make this cruise Janie and the you have the best time ever!
My brother in law just called and he has in one day organized a three day trip to Universal Studio's, looks like the grand ones will get to go too so I am super excited!
Re, your pic of you and your grandchildren is so heart warming! Have a great time with them at Universal Studios!
We went to Las Vegas in April to celebrate my completion of treatment. We met my sister and her husband there and had a blast. We had never been there and we really enjoyed the people watching, lights and activity! We saw "Jersey Boys" and Rod Stewart. Memories for a life time! This summer we'll be roasting at home (it's been how here too!) and visiting our new grandson in IL. I can't hold him enough! In the fall we're going on a cruise through the Panama Canal. We had to cancel a cruise last fall due to my treatment and I'm going to make this one if it kills me!
Come August we are headed for MAUI, HAWAII!!! It's been 11 years since we last visited this tropical paradise. We are so jazzed and we are looking forward to taking the plunge, feet first, into everything HAWAII has to offer.
We were there a few years ago, it was the best vacation of my life! We did Maui, Kauai & Oʻahu. Kauai is my favorite! I really want to go back! Enjoy!
Going back to New York..just came back from a girls weekend and now goingn back with my kids and husband...they love New York...
Eva: where in NYS? I live couple hours south of Albany
Eva, when are you going to New York? I love that city! So much to do and see!
