I Need a Vacation

I want to go on vacation. I want to do something big. The longest vacation I've been on in the past 5 years was 6 days.

So I've made a plan. I've also adjusted my plan. (I was planning my trip for the first part of April, but it's not going to happen, so now I am shooting for the second week week of October.) And it will happen in three parts!

Its something I've always wanted to do. Go explore the East Coast! :) The trip will be 12-13 days (depending on plane ticket prices). I'm planning to leave Oct. 6th-ish and come back Oct. 18th-ish. (I like to be flexible.) The plan is to stay in each city for 4 days.

The first part is CHICAGO! Yeah!! I'm really excited. I'm going to visit my dear friend Lisa and her little family there. So I'll get to see them and kick it around Chicago. My boss is from there and is really excited for me. He's been recommending all sorts of things to do.

The next leg of the trip is a hop, skip, and jump over to ROCHESTER, NEW YORK to visit another dear friend, Rachel and her little family. And yeah! She's having another baby next month! Yeah! She wants to take me to Niagara Falls and Palmyra. It'll be really cool to see the Church History sites there. Its been something I've wanted to do for years!!

The last leg of the trip is WASHINGTON D.C. to visit my cousin and her sweet family! Conveniently they live someplace that I've dreamed of visiting since I was a kid. I have so many places I want to visit and so little time. The Smithsonian, Arlington Cemetary, the Capitol, etc.

Each could be it's own vacation, but I'll take what I can get! I'm trying to get a bit of layover in New York City so I can get a peek at it--at least from the airport, but I'm not sure if that will happen.

I'm so EXCITED!!!
