Much Needed Vacation

Our family is leaving for a vacation to Seattle on Wednesday! We'll be gone for a week. I love vacationing with our adult children. We have had some great times. They are very appreciative and there is no more "he's on my side of the seat, he's looking out my window, he's picking on me" to listen to. :)

Every few years we have taken our adult boys on a trip. It started in 2004 when I told my husband that we should take them on a trip because it would probably be the last time we would go on a family vacation since they were adults and had girlfriends and would be too busy to go. We decided to go to San Francisco and had a great time. Then in 2005 Kevin turned 50 and our youngest son turned 21. Kevin enjoys Vegas so I just had to plan a family trip to Vegas to celebrate his birthday. This would surely be the last trip both boys could take with us. Two years ago Easter was very early. Spring training was still in session during Easter break. This is a rare occurrence. Our entire family are big Milwaukee Brewers fans. So, of course, we had to go to Arizona for spring training. Since we were pretty sure we would be fulltiming sometime in 2010, it made total sense to plan one last family vacation before we were on a more limited income. I asked the boys where they would like to go. I was expecting a cruise or Disney. Instead, they said we had never been to the Northwest; so Seattle here we come. I can't wait!!! I'm sure this will be the last family vacation we take them on (wink, wink).

We had showings 33, 34 and 35 of the house this weekend. Showing #36 is this afternoon. Still keeping our fingers crossed. I think they may stay permanently crossed after all this time. We appreciate all the support we've received. Thanks!
