Where in the world is Margaret?

One of my goals in life is to travel more.  Since having Max almost a year ago I haven't traveled anywhere.  I think the last vacation I went on, that was longer than a weekend, was Miami in October of 2009.  That's too long ago!

Luke for some reason started talking about timeshares and vacations yesterday and now I can't stop thinking about it.  It became one of those thoughts that turned into hours a googling {you know the ones}.  Now that we have a family our idea of a vacation can go two different ways.  We can either bring Max and therefore need to find someplace family friendly; or we can make it a couples getaway and then need to find someplace NOT kid friendly.  I'm up for either but think the next trip should include Max as it would be fun to see it through his eyes.  I guess, until he melts down from being on a plane long hours and away from home, then I wouldn't want to see anything except my own bed!

Some of the vacations I'm dreaming of...
Mediterranean Cruise
Monte Carlo
Some places I have been...
Kauai, Hawaii {personal photo taken from a helicopter}
Paris, France {don't you just love these typical parisian buildings?}
Miami, Florida
I have also visited Manchester, England; Vaxjo, Sweden; Oslo, Norway; Saskatchewan, Canada; Cancun, Mexico.  

What have been your favorite vacations?  I'm looking for ideas!!!... and people to join me!


  1. All I have to say is bring Max to Disneyworld when he's 3. He will not forget it and talk about it all the time!!! It almost makes me emotional when Weston brings up our Disney trip (which is almost daily) because I see how much it meant to him and how much he absolutely LOVED it. He always asks when we're going back and we told him when Tyler turns 3. Seriously, 3 is a magical age, and perfect for the first time at Disney. For a trip now, I'd say go as a couple because when Max gets older you'll feel guilty not letting him have the experience with you. Now, he'd probably be just as happy at G and G's :) Good luck!

  2. How far are you willing to travel? Going to Australia and New Zealand was probably one of the most amazing trips I have ever taken. The flight may be too long for Max but the trip could easily be family or couple.

  3. Natalie, I can't wait to bring Max to Disney some day as it's such a magical place for kids. It sounds like when he is 3 is probably the best time. Thanks for the tip!

    Morgan, that sounds amazing! I would love to go there. I have to admit I totally watch Kate Plus 8 and they recently visited Australia and New Zealand and it got me thinking. Maybe I could do that one when Max is a little older so he can handle the plane ride better. Great idea!
