Have you read and participated in the other “More About You Monday” questions?] *** Since we are on vacation, we thought we would ask a vacation related question. So, today’s More About You Monday question is: What was your favorite/best vacation?

Seeing it on the Travel Channel… I love snow too! Sandi April 18, 2011 at 11:03 am Our most fun family vacation was to Hilton Head, but the most terrifying one was driving up Pikes Peak!!! I have flown an airplane by myself, but I was scared to death being in the front passenger’s seat of our mini-van, driving up that mountain. I kept leaning on Jerry, as if it would keep us from sliding over the cliffs. It’s something that I believe everyone should do in their life. It’s scary, glorious, amazing, and you feel like you have conquered a mountain! Oralea April 18, 2011 at 11:08 am My most favorite vacation was Summer of 2008 when Make-A-Wish sent us to Canada for William’s 3rd birthday. We had an amazing day for him and a week of seeing family and friends. It was the last time we have travelled such a distance with him and we probably won’t have the opportunity to do it again. So, I am glad we did it! Betty Short, NY Grandma's Friend April 18, 2011 at 11:19 am You’re making Southern California look mighty desirable!! Does anyone there ever not smile? For some reason smiles weren’t as noticeable around here yesterday while the snow flakes were falling…. I’ve had many wonderful vacations. One that comes to mind right now is two years ago a week in Gatlinburg, TN with my son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters. Great time, DollyWood, tremendous family, Great Smokey Mtns, beautiful weather. It was a very special week. A couple of other favorite respites were in Toronto for a time with my younger son when he had finished grad school. We had that very special time together, before his life took off in a new direction, seeing a beautiful city, going to a baseball game, theater shows, eating and enjoying. And, going to Graceland with my daughter and her son. Three generations of Elvis nuts at Heartbreak Hotel. Of course, we were surrounded by hundreds of others nuts just like us. Then there was a most unique vacation in Israel. There’s nothing like that experience. Would like to go again. There are a few other places I’d like to see in this country. But, as you have shown, going with family is what makes it most outstanding. In the meantime, I’m living vicariously through The Coddington Family. Can almost feel the Sonshine on my face! Diane Aeschliman April 18, 2011 at 12:20 pm I have two favorite vacations. The first was to Japan to see our Japanese daughter get married. She came down the aisle to “Amazing Grace” which blew me away. I stuck my head under Gary’s armpit and sobbed. She named her little girl (second born) after our Amie (Ami) a few years later. My second favorite vacation was to visit them in England where they were sent to work for five years. Seeing Dover was wonderful. But the neat thing was the plane ride home seeing Greenland. I said to my husband, look at all the ships down there. He looked and informed me they were icebergs! Thousands of icebergs! Texas Grandma April 19, 2011 at 11:04 am Those sound like wonderful vacations. And the wedding must have been so beautiful! When I was a little girl my brother was stationed in Greenland and I remember being amazed at the amount of snow in the pictures he sent home. It must be an incredible vision from a plane. Nathan April 18, 2011 at 1:57 pm my next one….always my next one! Texas Grandma April 18, 2011 at 2:59 pm I think my favorite vacation was the one you (Lana) and I took the day after your college graduation. We went to Natchez, Mississippi, where we stayed in a bed and breakfast called Ravena Side and toured some old plantations. Then we went to St. Francisville, Louisiana, and toured Rosedown, my favorite of the plantations. On the way home we went to Hodge’s Gardens which was decorated for Christmas. My favorite parts of the trip were when we went to the “10 pm mixed drinks” and found no one there. We realized they expected us to make our own and we had no idea how to mix a drink. So we skipped the drinks and went to bed. The other memory was when we were lost in Alexandria and I thought I was getting into a left turn lane and actually pulled into the grass median. It wasn’t so bad until several other cars pulled over behind me. Sarah Meisenhelter April 18, 2011 at 7:03 pm I agree with Nathan – Always the next one! However, I also really had fun on a trip to Nags Head when my mom was sick and 1/2 the week my dad’s whole family came from Indy to spend time together and then the rest of the week my mom’s family joined us. Very special. Also had a great time on our honeymoon cruise to Key West & Mexico! Kim April 19, 2011 at 10:50 am Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire! It was Kevin’s favorite place in the world and the place he died. I couldn’t go back for many years but then found it calling again. Jim and I enjoyed a three week honeymoon in a small rustic cabin on the lake. JD had his first ‘swim’ in the lake. And can’t wait to return this summer! debbie April 19, 2011 at 11:23 am I’ve had the priviledge of going on lots of really fun vacations, but my most favorite (although it wasn’t really a “vacation” ) was going to Guatemala and spending time with my daughter before she came home. It was the most happy time eva. And I think my second most fav vacation will be when we go to DisneyLand in a month. I haven’t been there since i was a kid and I am so excited I can hardly stand it. I can’t wait to see my sweet girls faces light up when they see the castle and the princesses. Janet Renda April 19, 2011 at 8:55 pm We really don’t take vacations. I thought it was silly to post that my best “vacation” was fostering in Guatemala but Debbie’s post made me realize it was a valid thought:) There was something so special about spending 4 months with no work, hubby, and the “big kids”. I’d love to go back and do it again. Mary Cairns April 29, 2011 at 11:58 am Actually, my favorite place to vacation is San Diego! Matt’s sister lives there and it is like a little bit of Heaven on earth in my opinion! Coronadp Island is awesome and we also like to venture to Catalina Island….nice place to visit but I wouldn’t want to live there! So glad you had such a great time!
