Vacation with family and friends requires planning just like any other event if you want the experience to be a total success.
When we didn’t have time to visit a friend who lives two hours away from our home base, she said “Next time, save time for us.” It was then that I realized our next visit would require better advanced planning.
Family of course comes first and I failed there too. At the end of our vacation I was told I needed to spend more time with our grandchildren. It would be wonderful if we could just spend the summer here, but alas, that is not possible.
Steve and my allergies are reaching a peak of discomfort that reminds us of the reason we moved to our desert home in Las Vegas. In Vegas we don’t have the lovely green trees that spread pollen everywhere.
Our vacation has been wonderful and we have seen family and friends, collected hugs, caught up on news. It has been a great time.
We stayed with our son Thom and his lovely wife Tracey and their witty daughter Cindy. Tracey is of Italian decent and adds love with every ingredient she mixes into the food she serves. I may have gained a few pounds during vacation, but oh I tell you, everything was yummy.
Steve’s favorite food is omelets. Tracey made us omelets. I declared it the best I had ever had, but for Steve to say it was the “BEST” is very hi praise indeed as he has eaten so many.
Staying at our son’s home has other advantages as well. We put puzzles together. It is so much fun when we all pitch in and put those tiny little pieces in place.
More fun than the puzzles is a century old card game called Flinch. Matching our skill against each other leads to lots of fun. Flinch is based on a card game called “Spite and Malice” and that can also be seen in Flinch when we are the players.
If you are planning a vacation to visit friends and family, I strongly suggest that you plan it out before leave home.
