When the kids were small, and could be controlled, we went home to Texas for vacations. This year, with a 16- and 15-year old, we had to spice up the anty abit. Yes, we are still going home to Texas, but we are also taking them to not 1, but 2 Vans Warped Tour Concerts! (http://www.vanswarpedtour.com/warpedtour/index.asp)
My friends, you remember those "Texas Jams", right? Or, maybe you don't! Well, these warped tours are the new "Jams". Danny's game, so he will take them. Last year Marisa got her picture taken with several bands. Over the months following last year's tour, pictures of my son acting silly appeared. I won't post those for fear of gossip fodder, but you get my point.
Our second family vacation this year will be to Las Vegas! And, yes, the kids are going with us. We are going to the Sony Fanfare again. Everyone is excited about this one. We'll be staying at Bally's.
We are also planning a few weekenders in the mountains. I'm so looking forward to our trips.
