Fifty Nifty

We have some forced vacation coming up and we are looking to go and see some new places. Especially places where we know people who live there. Like our friend Jed lives in Kentucky, we'd probably never really go to Kentucky, but hey we have forced vacation coming up and can only afford to drive somewhere...so, why not! I have absolutely no idea how Jed feels about it though.

Ideally we would combine our two weeks of forced vacation and do something really adventurous like drive up the East coast (dear 50 family members that are now going to comment and say, hey why don't you drive to New York for the family reunion....let me just get it out in the open that we can only combine our two weeks if we take the last week of June and the first week of July...which doesn't coincide with the reunion, bummer, I know).

So I was checking google analytics and it turns out I know people in almost every state, or at least they know me and have read my blog....so, anyone want me to come visit them for forced vacation week?

Or anyone have any secret awesome inexpensive vacation spots within a 12 hour radius of the Austin metro?

You could come back to Hotel Applegate and we might even give you TWO rooms. Lots of fun things to do here....

You could go to San Antonio and see the Alamo. . . also there is a cool, fun vacation spot close to San Antonio called New Braunfels (sp?) where there is a long, lazy river that's clear as glass and fun to go tubing on, with an intense chute at the end if you're up for a thrill. Also some fun old town shopping, etc. And it is also right by Schlitterbahn (again, sp?) the biggest water park IN THE WOOOORLD!! But don't know how that would work out with the little 'uns.

I doubt you'd want to come see me but hey...I would love it. (I also doubt it's within a 12 hour drive) I was just thinking though that if you want to get out of the heat then you should drive north but then again....you have already seen this part of the country so, the east coast is not a bad alternative. =)I hope you have fun on the vacay!

BTW....did I make any sense at all???

We just got back from Pensacola, Fl and it was awesome!!! The drive out wasn't too bad either and surprising under 12 hours. I had no idea, just like I had no idea that pieces of Florida are in our time zone, I thought they were all eastern.

With young kids I think the best vacay is taking them to the beach. Plenty of sand and tiny waves to tire out those little bodies so they take a 4 hour nap. Pure Heaven!
