Vacation All I Ever Wanted…

Do you ever take separate family vacations?

This past week Mr. Decor and Sweet Guy drove 16 hours to attend/volunteer at the annual air show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. It’s a dream trip for an Air Force veteran such as Ret. MSgt. Gunn.

Now I like to attend air shows but not for more than a day. The workers, and some attendees, at Oshkosh Air Show camp out all week long…along with the mosquitos, humidity and port a potty’s.

I’m happy to stay at home, write a few school papers, prepare for finals week and watch the dogs.

I also worked on transforming two areas of our backyard. Here’s the “BEFORE” of one area. I’ll share the makeover tomorrow.

Do you want to know my favorite part of separate summer vacations?

It’s how much you MISS the other person.

I can’t wait to hug their necks tonight!

I understand your preference to stay home and putter. Portapotties and tents on the ground are best left to those who enjoy the experience! lol
Can't wait to see your garden. :)

Not my idea of fun either. I find that when hubby goes out of town, even for a few days, I can get a lot done around the house!

It sounds like you were pretty productive during their days away! Looking forward to seeing your garden progress.

This was a win-win decision to let them go and enjoy their time while you carried on at home with a sweet reunion at the end.

Oh I am sure they will have tons of stories to tell.

Laura,
What a fantastic trip for your husband and son. A lifetime of storytelling will come from this trip. Yes, missing them and waiting for them to get home are the best parts of separate vacations or work-related trips.

Separate vacations have benefits - reading in bed, watching 'girl movies' and eating breakfast for supper....but in the end the best thing is being together at the end of the holiday!

A few days apart makes the heart grow fonder! Love the kiss!
