I’ve been to some amazing places over the years, and there are tons of places I’d still like to visit (Australia, Green Bay, Paris, Italy, Maine, Switzerland, Vermont, Hawaii…the list goes on and on – and it’s quite an eclectic grouping ), but my best vacations have been with family.
My sister and brother-in-law took me to Memphis to visit Graceland and Beale street on my fortieth birthday (years and years ago
My very favorite vacations are the ones I took with my children. We didn’t usually go anywhere particularly exciting, but just relaxing with them and seeing the joy on their faces was more fun and satisfying than anything else. I loved taking my son to major league baseball games, especially in Cincinnati. He saw his idol, Ken Griffey, Jr., play and he met and got an autograph from Adam Dunn. That kind of thing doesn’t happen every day. I’ll always treasure the memories my children and I have made over the years. Sometimes we couldn’t afford to go very far and I’d rent a hotel room in a nearby town, or even in town, where we’d swim and watch movies and eat out and do all sorts of fun things. We were doing ‘Staycations’ long before they became trendy.
My kids are all grown now, and we have busy lives and don’t get to do the things we did when they were small, but I’m so thrilled that, when we can find the time, they still want to go on trips with me. I guess that means we’re still making memories together, and I wouldn’t trade that for anything in the world.
