We try to take at least one family vacation a year. That is grandparents, kids, grandkids. Last year it was Disney World. Before that Disneyland and Jamaica. This year it will be Washington D.C. in October. Next year we are thinking Alaska or Hawaii. Anyone been to these places? What are you thoughts and experiences.

Wow sounds like fun!! We go to the beach once a year with extended family and then multiple camping trips throughout the year. Sounds like you know what is important in life. Have a great time!

"Can I come, Do ya have room for one more? Hawaii is on my bucket list and I'm not sure how much longer I'll be around. I need some extended family since my grandparents are no longer around, and my other family lives on the other side of the country.

Can't wait to go, the grandkids are coming in for a short visit and then will finish planning out the trip to DC in October. Too bad Johsper's not going to be able to go with us like he was planning.

Well Trish, none of are sure how much longer we will be around. This is why we plan and take these vacations. Great bonding of three generations of the family. Makes great memories for the younger ones. Fulfills dreams for the older ones. The train trip to Disney Land was a dream I had that kept me sane in a crazy work environment for 20 years. So glad I could plan and save money for these trips when I was younger. Sure would be hard to do on just social security. We all live far apart but we get together for these destination vacation. Everybody just flies, drives, or takes a train(my favorite) to where ever we are going and chips in on the housing costs and food costs. We try to find houses that are for rent. Some even have swimming pools.That way we can cook our meals and save money that way. Also you don't have to pack so many clothes because you can wash your clothes right there. Saves on baggage fees.

As an after thought, but for modern medicine, everyone in my immediate family would be dead including me. So we cherish our time together and love all of those who come into our family. Just wish everyone could be included.

The October vacation in DC was wonderful got to see a lot of stuff but not as much as we thought we would. Looking to plan another vacation there in a few years so we can see some of the stuff we missed this time. Pictures were posted on Facebook. Just had a wonderful Thanksgiving with all the family at home. Hope things continue this way.'
