We haven't really taken an "official" vacation with the kids. We have been waiting for them to get a little older so (1) the drive won't be unbearable if we decide to go someplace far away and (2) they can enjoy themselves more.
I was perusing the PayPerPost site this morning, and this is the first site I came upon ... so yes, I am being paid to write about this. BUT ...
I have spent the last 30 minutes (instead of working; bad me) looking at vacation home rentals and coming up with some great ideas of places we could thing about.
I was looking at the Maine vacation rentals because of all the states that my parents took me to when I was 13 years old on our trips to the East Coast, Maine was my favorite state by far. I loved Portland. I loved Ogunquit. I loved Wells. It brought back a lot of good memories. I think we will save that one for when the kids are a little older.
I think we are going to look at going to Pigeon Forge or Sevierville ... locations close to Dollywood and 1300 miniature golf courses and just plain fun places for kids to go. This is the cabin that I am looking at. Of course, my mind goes immediately to black bears because when my sister and brother in law took my niece to Gatlinburg, they were in a similar cabin and did see a black bear or two. But then ... we have coyotes in Ohio. Sure, bears vs. coyotes not a good comparison, but hey. Can't always be in a safe location.
I will post back to let you all know which one we choose. Right now, with -5 degree wind chills, I am ready to go at this very moment. But I guess I need to make sure there is room for us when we get there, huh?
