We're headed on our first official family vacation!

I am so excited to be finally taking our first official vacation with the kids. I feel like a grown up! In the past we would have just jumped in the car and set off for the mountains. Often we'd just drive around until dark and then try to find a campground or hotel. Sometimes they were full or too expensive and we'd have to keep looking. We'd always say "next time we're going to plan better."

Well this time, since there is a good likelihood that it will be snowing, camping is out of the question. Luckily since it's sort of the off season, small mountain cabin rentals are pretty much the same as the hotels. So we've lucked out and found a cute little cabin to stay at.

I am thrilled to be able to share the mountains, and hopefully snow, with our kids who have never been out of Florida. I can't wait to see the look on their faces when we stop at some of the most breathtaking scenic overlooks. I know they're just going to love it!

Pictures of your time in the snow? And I NEVER knew you had a personal blog! I discovered it through my google alerts for my blog name!

LOL. I've had this blog for a while but rarely use it. Trying to get it going again but don't quite like the name or the look of it...

Will work on a post with pics of the snow. We had a blast!
