Just in case you thought I could spend the holiday weekend packing…
Because the Dlugs are going on a much anticipated family vacation beginning this evening.
I cannot tell you the last time all six of us went on vacation. (There was a family wedding in Boston we all went to a few years ago but aside from that…mid-1990’s?)
Last year, my mother, possibly feeling the sadness that was all four of her babies out of the house forever, decided that we should possibly skip Christmas presents and plan a trip instead. We were instructed to just buy each other one small gift for Christmas and then, VACATION HERE WE COME!
What happened was that everyone got one gift.
And we never planned a vacation.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, CRATCHIT FAMILY! (No presents but lots of love! And God Bless Us Everyone!)
Big families = lots of opinions and busy schedules! We couldn’t decide where to go, when to go, what to do, sister in grad school, older brother running marathons, younger brother doing…whatever it is 22 year olds do…
Finally this past summer, I was all ENOUGH ALREADY YOU GUYS and rented a farm house upstate for us.
We had grand plans for apple picking and leaf peeping and oh what a magical Columbus Day weekend it will be!
Welp. Now it’s supposed to rain all weekend so I guess it will be more like…baking pumpkin brownies and drinking wine.
And that sounds…perfect?
Oh, I am so, so excited! Basically because: SO MUCH BLOG FODDER! (My dad, amirite!?!?)
I will be back next week with much to report! Huzzah, fall! family! brownies!
