We leave for vacation soon and I can't wait!! We have never taken a vacation that's longer than a week and it has always been a rushed one to visit family. And since that requires either a 16 hour or 10 hour drive each way, it seemed almost not worth it. We are so lucky to be able to take almost 4 weeks this time! We are heading to the Creation Museum first and then stopping at a friend's house for a night. It will be so great to see her and her family! We haven't seen each other in 2 years and we've both had baby boys since. It will be so fun for all the kids to play. After that, we're heading to Wisconsin to visit Mike's family. We only get to see his parents once a year and his siblings less than that so it will be great to be with them all! His parents will celebrate their 5oth wedding anniversary while we're there and they're having a family get together. I'm looking forward to just relaxing and having date nights with Mike. My in-laws are so great about baby sitting. Also on the agenda are visits to IKEA and Mall of America as well as trying out a restaurant we saw the other night on "Man vs. Food". It has been a long couple of years with Mike in school and we really need this downtime. I think this will be an awesome summer!
