Last night hubby and I had a long talk about our trip out west... the end result.... we aren't going. Don't worry, we are still going on a much needed vacation though. After much discussion, we decided we didn't want to spend 75% of our vacation driving in the car, we want to have time to relax and have fun. Also, the fuel alone to California and back would have cost us $3500, not leaving much fun money for us. While we still want to head out west one day, we are going to wait until Mason is a bit older.
So, where are we going you ask? We are heading south...
First stop will be a day in Virginia(Shenandoah Valley area). After that we are heading to Pigeon Forge, TN and Dollywood!! After that, Ruby Falls, TN.
We aren't doing the touristy Disney thing.... we are doing the summer in the sun thing. Beaches, pools, and nature parks. Plus I get to see family and friends. We are staying at a brand new rv resort and I can't wait to just relax and lounge by the pool.(oh, and have to catch some lizards for the kids, they have never seen any)
Then we are headed to Schuyler, VA!!! Earl Hamner's home and the Walton museum(The Walton's is my favorite tv show).
Anyone have any suggestions on neat things to do and see in these places?
Off to pack some more,
