How many vacations? - Page 3

post #21 of 28
we love to go. We take one adult only vacation a year sometimes for a week or sometimes for only 3 or 4 days. Keeps us remembering why we got together in the first place. We usually go to the beach for a week in the summer and all of our family that can comes. And for the last 4 years we go to Disney for our Fall break. We love to go and a lot of times we do without other things so we can go away as a family as often as possible. My husband is a commercial beef farmer and never ever has time off unless he is out of town. It just works for us.

Vacation-what's that? We haven't been anywhere good since 2002 before kids. Since then we maybe do a weekend thing but with the kids we haven't really done anything except the yearly trip to the waterpark with family for a weekend.

DH gets two vacation allowances each year from work and if you don't use them, you lose the money. So, we take at least two vacations each calender year.

We have small children so we do not do "vacations" anymore.. But we do trips to places on average 4 times a year. We go overnight in a hotel, and are gone for 2 days usually.

When I was a child my family did one big camping vacation a year.

When I was a kid, we went away a lot, twice a year to Yosemite (4 days each) and a week or two each summer on a houseboat on a lake somewhere (changed). We also took a lot of weekend trips.

But I find travel with kids to be very expensive! We usually go out of town for one or two overnights once or twice a year, and we go camping 2x a summer, usually. The only family vacations we've done have been to Disneyland (twice -- and my son is almost 10).

BUT in a month, we leave for our grand tour! It's a big road trip to Las Vegas, Hoover Dam, the Grand Canyon and Disneyland. We'll come home on Easter Sunday. Hardly a VACATION in the traditional sense, but a getaway nonetheless!

We've had one real vacation. And that was before my youngest son was born. We can't afford them. Sometimes we'll take a weekend somewhere. But that has only happened twice. I wish we could afford a vacation!

As a kid we went to the shore every year for a week. Dh never went on a vacation until he married his first wife, then it was a week at the shore every year.
I love love love to travel. Before we got married, I traveled by myself to visit friends in different parts of the country and with an auntie to Europe several times. Before our son was born, dh and I went on one big trip each year, spent a few days at the shore, and went on a few weekend trips.
But now, with one income and a toddler, we're planning a few days at the shore and maybe an overnight or two with relatives in a four-hour radius.

DH and I have been married for 11 yrs next month and we barely took an official week long vacation last Thanksgiving. However that was a week spent visiting family. We take as many trips as we can afford to go back home for weekend trips. Usually 2-3 per year. We do have weekends that DH will take off for a 3 day weekend and spend a family weekend, not going anywhere but just catching up with each other, when things seem to be chaotic in our lives.
