    Default Enjoying your summer break??

    It sure is quiet around the chatter forum! How's everyone doing?

    Are you doing anything exciting for your summer vacation?

    With school out and summer vacation in full swing, apparently people are out having fun because it has been pretty quiet around here lately. I wish I could say we have some fun plans for the summer but we don't. With gas prices up toward $4.29 a gallon here in Michigan, we're stick close to home. Only exciting thing on my agenda the next couple of weeks is a garage sale. Yucky! It has to be done though. Been storing stuff since we moved the last time, which was 8 years ago so it's time to let it go and purge the stuff we aren't using or have space for anymore.

    Sorry you weren't able to visit with Missi. That would have been a lot of fun

    Now that sounds like a lot of fun!! I can't wait to hear all about it!! Where are you going for your cruise? My parents just got back from their Alaska cruise and I was excited going through their photos and hearing their stories!!

    So I don't know that this summer is going to be "slow" for us, heh, with the new home, birthday parties (a lot of family has summer birthdays), new baby, out of town guests and the like I don't think I'll sleep until next year!
    Oh wow! I do not know how you did it---moving while pregnant, especially that close to delivering! Bless your heart for doing all that while pregnant. I hope you are able to get some sleep/rest before the baby comes next month!!

    Touring Philadelphia, Gettysburg, Lancaster, Harrisburg---I guess it depends on WHERE in PA you are looking. I love going out to Lancaster, especially Shady Maple. When my IL's visited, they spent the day out in Gettysburg. Another place is visiting Hershey--we did that when DH enlisted at MEPS.

    That's so awesome!! I can't wait to hear all about your trip. Our neighbors were stationed in Hawaii for many years and I love listening to them talk of the island life. I told DH that's where I want him to try for when he re-enlists later this year, that or England!!

    Like seriously, my birthday is in July and I'm counting this guest CT stint as my birthday gift. ^_^
    That's so awesome!! Im so excited for you!! Oh and happy early birthday because I know I'll forget when July rolls around!!

    We are sailing out of San Juan, PR and going to St. Thomas, Barbados, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, and St. Maarten. Very port intensive, but all places we want to go and may not get back to again. We're also flying into San Juan two days early to enjoy the city.

    That's awesome that you might be able to meet up over Christmas!!!

    I really cannot wait to hear about your cruise and see photos!! It sounds like a lot of fun. I have a friend who used to live in St. Maarten and loved looking at her photos that she would post, especially during the winter months when we were freezing cold!!
    I can't get photobucket to work.

    Ugh! Kathy that gas price is awful!!
    We don't have any major plans either, but we will for sure do a few camping trips
    We stay pretty close to home, because I'm not a very comfortable driver. We always talk about how once my daughter, Isabelle, gets her drivers license we can finally take some road trips. But with gas prices like that we won't get very far! Lol

    Hi Ginger and Kathy. Sadly no big plans for us either. My hubby just started a two-month contract yesterday and he will be working 6 days a week until mid-August. The good part is he will be on straight days instead of three rotating shifts, but he won't get any holidays until September ... then after that he goes back to his normal shift (or who knows, he may decide to stay at the other place, lol.) So we'll just squeeze in what we can in the evenings or on Sundays. Exciting huh?

    We've been on vacation already & are possibly heading to CHA in Vegas in July. That's about the extent of our plans so far!

    The "kids" (at almost 17 and 20 are they really kids?) have slipped into summer sleeping schedule...up most of the night, sleep most of the day. No summer vacay for me, although I do get the week of July 4th off, but hubby doesn't. Was going to go spend a few days with Missi, but I ended up scheduling some Dr. appts for that week.

    My vacation isn't until September (my 25th Anniversary) cruise. Hoping that things slow down a bit for summer though and I can enjoy some downtime in the evenings.
