Last questions, if you're still answering: What's one trip you would like to take with just Dowlan? (By the way, I don't know if Bryan or I know how to talk about anything not related to the spawn. And you're right, rebuilt transmissions and how to pay for an air conditioner do not count). What's one of the first places you would like to take the kiddos when they are all old enough to remember?
While the two vacations I have been on my life were lovely, I would like to have a few more. I have been all over the place to see family--Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Oregon--but except for a family trip to Washington, D.C. when I was 14 and our honeymoon in Hot Springs, I haven't been anywhere. Oh, and I have been to Mexico border towns and colonias doing mission trips, but anywhere you go to do manual labor and contract parasites doesn't really count.
So my answer is anywhere. I would love to go anywhere.
We're about to have our fifth anniversary and are trying to get away for a weekend to a bed and breakfast in the Hill Country. It will be the first time in my life I have booked a fancy place to stay.
As far as the kids are concerned--the D.C. trip was amazing and I would like to take them there when they are big enough to really appreciate it.
I want to take them to cool places like Enchanted Rock and Big Bend to do camping, hiking, spelunking and all that cool stuff. Right now we're really into the San Antonio Zoo, which is only 90 miles away. It is a perfect day trip and my kids love it.
I have absolutely no desire to go to DisneyWorld. I just don't see the attraction.
