I think when I was a college student or teacher I needed spring break so much. I remember being so burnt out and longing to just lay on the beach and do nothing. I doubt I will be doing much of that this week with my 3 energetic girls! Anyways, I was thinking back to all the fun trips I was able to go on in the past and wanted to see if I could remember them all!
Freshman year of college: Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. My track team at Arkansas went there and I was in awe. They have the best weather and everything was so nice. I remember getting to do a little shopping and eating yummy food after the meet.
Sophomore year: Southern California for the Mount Sac Relays. It was another track meet and we went to the beach after.
Junior Year: Naples, Florida with two friends. We drove from Northwest Arkansas to Southern Florida in her old honda accord. It was like 23 hours or some length of time. We did not stop overnight and got to stay at her grandmother's old beach house.
Senior Year: Destin, Florida with a whole group of people from SBU. We rented a nice beach house and had an awesome time. It's funny cause Mike was in Orlando at Disney with his family and I remember us talking on the phone some.
Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA on a trip when we lived in Raleigh, NC. I love both of these cities so much and they are beautiful during the spring.
Myrtle Beach, SC was another great trip with Mike and it was really close to Raleigh.
Williamsburg, VA and Washington D.C. with Mike. It was full of history and culture. We loved going to both of these cities for the first time.
Married life with kids:
Well, the spring break trips have kind of ended:) We normally, go somewhere in July or with family now cause it is not really a break with 3 kids. It is nice to have some extra hands!
However, last year we went to the KOA outside of Dallas. It was hilarious cause I was very pregnant with Mary and we rented this tiny cabin. We left at 2:30 in the morning cause neither of us could sleep and the kids were coughing all night. It did not feel like camping cause we were right off of a major interstate in Dallas.
Dallas will be very busy this week cause people from small towns in TX and OK drive to Dallas to shop, go to six flags, museums, zoo, etc... We have some fun stuff planned with friends so I am sure it will be a nice week where we do not have to be anywhere by 9:30 A.M..
What was your favorite spring break trip?!
