Edited to add:
We changed plans.
I noticed that Yellowstone is supposed to be rainy with a chance of @$%! SNOW! (!!!) So we opted to go to Los Angeles and spend a couple of days at Universal Studios.
I think I will like wearing capris more than a parka on my birthday, yes?
Keep these ideas coming! I am loving your suggestions!
Sunday is my birthday.
I want to get the "H" out of Dodge.
You know how every year after your birthday, you VOW that next year you will do something fun, just for YOU. Yeah, and then your birthday rolls around, and if you are like me, you end up making or buying yourself a cake, and hosting guests.
Well, this year I am going away.
Granted, I am bringing along the kids and husband, but at least we will be in a hotel, where someone else will make the bed. On my birthday.
We are only going to be gone a couple of days, so we settled on a destination that is fairly close.
We are heading to Yellowstone.
It was the best I could come up with on short notice.
Sam has never been, and neither have the kids.
I went when I was a little girl, and can still remember being a little freaked out about falling in the steaming sulphur pits.
I remember waiting forever to watch Old Faithful blow, and then it did, and I was like..."that's it?" And being kinda disappointed at waiting so long for something that was just meh.
Sort-of a foreshadowing of my life now. If I had only known...
Now here is where you folks come in.
If you had a weekend, and you could go anywhere you wanted to spend a couple of days...where would you go?
Bear in mind that we are the lucky ducks who have free flight benefits.
Throw me a bone here, and give me some more ideas for our next trip.
Or sell me on your fine city!
Somewhere fun you have been.
And when I get back (Tuesday) I will throw together some post-birthday scrapbooking RAKS to share with some random folks who leave me a comment.
Cause I am a giver like that.
