What Was Your Summer Vacation Like?

I recently met up with my brother, his wife and their three little ones at my father's house in Sonoma, California. My nieces are 5, 3 1/2 and 2 years old. So, Grandpa's pool was a big hit.

After getting everyone into the their swimmies, we played Marco Polo. Shouting out, "Marco" and hearing a chorus of "Polo" in return was adorable. We also hit the Sonoma County Fair, where the girls saw cows, pigs and goats and rode a rollercoaster that looked like a caterpillar.

Once we got the little ones to bed, we enjoyed the local flavor. And by that, I mean wine. (This vineyard is down the road from Dad's.)

All in all, it was a great little summer vacation packed with family and fun. Did you go on a vacation this summer? If so, what was it like?



  1. I haven't had one yet! We're going to have a big cross country road drip after we take our son to college.

  2. Ooo! Cross country trips are so much fun! I've done them a bunch of times. If you'd like advice on where to stop, I'd be happy to tell you about the places I loved.

  3. I haven't yet, but I will be the end of the month.

  4. Every summer I spend 3 weeks with my Massachusetts family. This year we celebrated my aunt and uncle's 50th anniversary and my twin nephews' 26th birthday. I took my Mom to a show and my brother and I took a tour of a Thai Buddhist Temple.

  5. I'm up in the Bay Area writing, visiting my grandson, and writing, while my youngest daughter attends a two-week residential summer program for her school. It's something of a vacation, and I'm enjoying it!

    I love hearing "Marco?" "Polo!" It's a summer joy. :-)

  6. A measly 48 hour jaunt up to Michigan. Such a sad excuse for vacation, and my husband wonders why he's so burned out at work!!!
