My two sons are off at camp for this week (Six nights away from home!) and my husband is at that same camp as a volunteer doing handyman stuff. This is the first time that both boys have been away at camp — or anywhere — without their sister, so I proposed that she and I take a girls’ trip. We hopped in the van and hit the road.
We’re spending the week staying in the big city with grandparents and aunties and cousins and having a great time, just the two of us. It’s the first time that our family has taken separate vacations and I’m sure it won’t be the last. Don’t get me wrong - we would prefer to be all together - but this trip of ours is a lot more fun than staying home while the boys are having a week of adventure.
Have you taken separate vacations?
