I will never get tired of taking my kids somewhere and not telling them where we are going. And that’s exactly what we did yesterday. Our school had a teachers’ conference day today, so on a whim we decided to head up to Lake George. Yes, we were just there in November, but really we just wanted something to do. And it was a great time!
We swam. We relaxed. We went out to dinner. We stayed up late. (Well, “late” for the kids, which meant about 8:30 p.m.) We slept in. (Well, “in” for us, which meant about 7:00 a.m.). We shopped. We had a great lunch. We came home.
Sure, it would have been awesome to have the time and money to jet off to Florida and hire a st petersburg limousine service to take us around. But the Adirondacks are where I like to be. I like the mountain air over the sandy beaches. And even in the dead of winter, there is something so rejuvenating about it. No, we might have not have gone for, or done a whole lot, but having fun together and not having to worry about life, even if just for an overnight, is all the “vacation” I needed
