Windy Poplars Kindred Connection Party

So Kristin over at Windy Poplars has these Kindred Connection Parties on Wednesdays, and this week the theme is vacations. And, since I am going on vacation NEXT WEEK!!! I thought I would join in.

Windy Poplars

1. What is the most recent vacation you've been on?
In February I went to Colorado to visit my sister and go skiing.

2. What is the destination of the vacation of your dreams?
This is tough  because there are so many vacations I would love to go on. I'm thinking I would really love to go to Australia though.

3. Do you have a favorite place you vacation to regularly?
Well my parents have a time share in Colorado, and I've managed to work it out so I have been able to join them the past 4 years. Not always for the whole week but at least for a few days of skiing, so that is probably my most frequent vacation spot.

4. Vacation preference: beach, city, or mountains?
Can I say the beach and the mountains? I guess right now I would have to say the beach because I have been to the mountains more recently than the beach. But really it is probably whichever I haven't been to in the longest, I need both in my life.

5. Have you ever vacationed with a group of people (other than your family)? If so: How did you coordinate it, and would you do it again?
I took several spring break trips with friends in college. I wasn't really the one that coordinated those, however. Recently we have done a couple of trips down to Florida, and a couple of of our good friends who live down there, Brent and Karin and Jeff and Stephanie, have joined us. These have been so much fun and I would love it if it became an annual tradition. It's usually just for a long weekend, but it is wonderful. Unfortunately both couples are going to be busy when we are down there next week so I don't think we'll get to see them this time around :(

Our last trip down there was in October for Brent and Karin's wedding. Here is me and Stephanie:

And here are the boys. Our friend Wes joined us for this trip and added to the fun. I would love it if he always joined us on our trips down there (he lives up in Kentucky with us). You can read more about that adventure here, here and here.

So there's my answers - now head on over to Windy Poplars and join in the fun!

Hi Anne! Thanks for joining the party this week! Sorry I'm so slow getting around to visit everybody. My week has been just INSANE! Looking forward to the weekend. Well, actually Sunday b/c I have a wedding to direct on Saturday.- Enjoyed your answers! Australia sounds like a wonderful place to visit. I actually have some friends down there, so if we could ever afford a plane ticket, our lodging would be taken care of! Hope you have a FABULOUS time in Florida!!! Talk to ya again soon...
