We’ve gotten to the point where we enjoy spending time with each other so much that we did more than one date this past weekend. First we had my parents babysit while we attended a friend’s 50th birthday party. It was fun to have a night out and spend some time with our older friends. Nathan and I think it is funny that we have friends our age and then we have friends same ages as our parents. Lesson #1: Friends can never be too old.
Then we spent the rest of the weekend planning a dream vacation. We have been dreaming of going to Disney World for a while now. And it seemed like this is the prime opportunity for us to go. Plus we haven’t been on a family vacation (as in a trip not visiting family or friends) in a long time. So we did some research together. It was fun planning a vacation together. We got excited about the things we will be doing and memories we will create with the children. It’s going to be worth every penny, right? Lesson #2: Vacations are about the memories, not the costs (within reason).
Nathan said: The birthday party was fun even if we were the youngest in the crowd by at least ten years. It was nice to get out of the house and leave the kids behind. Yeah! Oh, and the Disney trip? I’m excited but also still skeptical. Disney is going to have to win me over.
» Tell me… Do you have any tips for me going to Disney with our children? This will be our first time at Disney World.
