Vacations at Various Ages
July 18, 2013 - 9:56pm

0-11: I hope we get to go to the zoo/amusement park/grandma’s house!

12-18: Great. Parents.

18-27: Vacation? Vacation? I’m broke as ^%#)^#. What’s a vacation?

28-30: Finally! Let’s see the sights we’ve always wanted to see!

31-40: Is it kid-friendly?  Where will we eat?  Don’t forget the pack’n’play, exersaucer, sippy cups, umbrella stroller, portable changing pad (it’s a thing), baby wipes, medical records, strategically chosen stuffed animals, animal crackers, and LeapPads.

41-:  Screw it.  Get in the car.

We’re loading up the family truckster and heading west for a while, so the blog will be on a break.  See you on Monday, July 29.
