Vacation Alternatives

  Uncle Sam and his bastard cousin, Tax Man, have decided to take our big vacation fund to use for their own purposes. So no warm, sandy beaches with cabana boys handing me drinks this year.

It's ok....I am grateful for roads to drive on, law and order, civil liberties...and all that good stuff that my taxes pay for. I would appreciate it if a few people could get off welfare so my whole vacation fund isn't sucked away!! But that is another soapbox for another time.

We have decided that a family vacation is still in order, November 2009 was our last family vacation so we are due. We are going to take Wes on his first trip to the mountains!

My college girlfriend and her family live in Beuna Vista Colorado and we are going to spend one evening with her and her family. I haven't see her since I was pregnant with almost 5 years. She is pregnant with number 2 and I haven't even met her number one. It will be so great to catch up!

THEN....we are headed to Beaver Run Resort in Breckenridge for the next 3 nights! They are having a huge Mardi Gras festival that weekend with parades, mascaraed balls,  etc. It sounds like it will be super fun with a lot of activities!!  We haven't decided if we will put Wes in Ski school, but I know we are going to go tubing with him! He loves sledding. I'm excited! A bonus....we are driving! It's a 10 hour drive to my friends house but I love a good road trip! Wes has always done well on trips. We are going to put Izzy in respite care while we are gone. You are not allowed to take Wards of the State out of State without the Court's permission. I know he will do well!

That sucks about Izzy but the rest sounds really fun.
