60   Leave a comment

So since we went to Wisconsin Dells for my husband’s 60th birthday my daughter said we have to plan on some place for mine.

At first I said a Florida beach because that is where I thought everyone would have the most fun.

I wanted to rent a house on the beach and hopefully have a private pool too.


But then my daughter Emily said that we should go where I want to go.

Well that is easy.


Utah, Arizona, Colorado, Montana, Alaska…..

But what can everyone afford?
And how long do they want to be gone for?
Can everyone afford airline tickets for four or five people in their families?

Then we have to worry about transportation when we get there.

Renting a place…..money for activities ……

It just seems endless.

I have to worry about money for my husband and I.

My son has three in his family, my other son has four in his family, my youngest daughter has five in her family and my eldest daughter has herself and her significant other…..

All costing money to go on any vacation.

And while we have two and a half years to save and plan for it……I just don’t know what to do or where to actually go.


Before I die I want to take a cruise ship to Hawaii and go around every island and then cruise back to California.

I also want to go to Alaska on a cruise and see Denali National Park.

I would love my children and their families to see the Grand Canyon or Utah or Estes Park in Colorado and Rocky Mountain National Park.
I want to see Glacier mountain national park in Montana.

I want to go to Oregon, Washington state again and maybe California….

I WOULD LOVE to drive up the east coast in the fall to Maine.


I want to see Niagara Falls

So it’s a mountain of thoughts to figure out the ideal place where we can all afford to go.



In many ways I want to say “Let’s go to Colorado because it is twelve hours away and we can all drive it”

But I’ve been to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park twice.

I don’t really need to go again…..

And I may go with my sister’s next year…..

It really shouldn’t be this complicated.
