  2. It's me again. Just trying to double my chances!! Hope you have a great week!!

  3. My fav part of family vacations is when it's over - nah - just kidding. I love having the time together with no other distractions and we can enjoy each other at a relaxed pace

  4. I hope that your furnishings have finally arrived so that you can get settled in. My favorite part of family vacation is spending time together as a family and not having to run one here and the other one there. We are all together to do something at our own pace.

    Hi again Ally. My fave thing about family holidays is the stress free time together...everyone is just chilling out and not worrying about the usual day to day hassles...the living is easy:0)

  6. Hi! My favorite part about family vacations is I don't have to cook!

    Thanks for the chance Ally!


  7. We live in VA so we are surrounded by mountains and love the colors of the trees changing.

  8. What I like about vacations is getting away from the normal routine at home and having fun with the family.


  9. Thanks for offering this RAK!

    My favorite thing about family vacations is getting out of the city! It's nice to get away, to anywhere, and get a break from the usual routines. I like going to the country or the mountains just to chill!


  10. For me the best part of vacation is that all the stresses of life are put on hold for a week or two. And your only responsibility is figuring out what you are gonna wear that day and what you are gonna do! For me it is a no cooking time too and I LOVE THAT!!

    Thanks for the chance!

  11. So cool. My fave thing about family vacation is getting away from it all and not having to follow any kind of schdule; being able to get away from our daily routines:)

  12. I know this sounds corny but I love spending quality time with my daughter. I came off maternity leave last year and sometimes I miss it a lot. When we go on vacation I get to spend the whole day with her even if it shopping (hehe).


  13. well it was our first disney trip this year with the kids and seeing the smile on their faces and being together was amazing. It brought tears to my eyes. A Vacation is spending quality time with your loved ones and creating the memories on paper.

  14. My favorite part about vacations is seeing all the smiles on my son's face (priceless). No matter where we go or what we do , just being able to get out and take a break and live our lifes in the moment! Life is short.....


  15. My favourite part about a family vacation is just being able to be together. Mh dh is self-employed and when I have time off it is hard for him, so we enjoy whatever time we can get together with the kids for a trip anywhere.


Thanks for brightening my day. I read each and every comment.
