Show and Tell Tuesday, Favorite Vacations

 I'm linking up with Andrea today, to play along with, "Show us your favorite vacations."

As long as I can remember, I've loved to travel.  The older I get the more in love with traveling I have become.  The only problem is, the time and money it takes.  Isn't that how it goes for all of us though?!

Our Montana Road Trip

 There's a lot of my state that I haven't seen, so we decided to take a Montana road trip with my sister and her family.  This was definitely one of my favorite trips to date.  We didn't have to fly anywhere.  The drive in the car was never more than a couple of hours each day, and we saw and experienced so much.  We visited old ghost towns, panned for gold and looked for sapphires.  After this trip, I've been anxious for us to take another road trip and see even more of our great state.

You can read the posts on our Montana trip, here, here and here.


 How could Hawaii not be one of my favorite vacations.  No matter who you go with and what kind of a trip it is, Hawaii is just plain fun!  I have to say though, I always love when Dan is with me.

Sweden & Finland

 Dan and I took a trip to Stockholm Sweden, and then we traveled through a bit of Finland.  We were over there for 10 days and we saw and did some amazing things.  We toured the Royal Palaces in Stockholm.  Visited the Vasa Museum, as well as explored Downtown Stockholm.  In Finland we traveled around and ended up in a rustic wood sauna where we would then run and jump into the cold Baltic Sea.  This will definitely be one of my favorite trips.

And lastly, here are a couple more vacations that we loved.  This was back before I started this blog, so I hadn't written about them.


Who doesn't love Disneyland?!  The kids were much younger when we've went, so I think it would be fun to go again now that they are older.  I think it would be a completely different experience.  Not better or worse, just different.

The Oregon Coast

We loved the Oregon Coast.

When we went on this trip, we rented a house in Cannon Beach, from a customer of Dan's.  It was right on the beach and it was so easy with the kids.  During the days, we traveled up and down the coast, but Canon Beach was our home base.

We love to travel, and I think whether you are leaving the country or traveling around in your own state, there is fun to be had and new things to see.  It doesn't have to be a big, expensive trip to be fun.
