Happy Anniversary to Meeeeeee!

Yep.... The big guy and I have been hitched for EIGHT whole years! Can you believe it?!? That is 2922 days! 70,128 hours! 4,207,680 minutes! Granted, between deployments, training schools and dh's crazy working hours, we've only spent 3 (counting today, which almost didn't happen) of those anniversaries together, but hey, we've made the most of those 3 anniversaries! lol

We have been through sooooooo much in that time! Since we got married, we have endured my major health crisis, the death of 3 very close and extremely beloved family members, a difficult pregnancy and delivery, the birth of the greatest kid ever, lol, 4 moves - totaling 5500 miles, 2 deployments, the first day of school, potty training, saying goodbye to too many old friends and hello to new ones.

It has been a whirlwind ride and I can't wait to see what's around the next bend!

Need Vacation Ideas!!

As you've learned in my earlier posts, loyal readers, Hubby is being deployed to Iraq. We just found out yesterday that he will be leaving from here before the last week in May. ~insert sad face here~ He's going to try to take 3 or so weeks of leave before he goes and has asked me to come up with some family vacation ideas.

Would you believe that we've never gone on a vacation that didn't involve going to visit family? We didn't even take a honeymoon!! (Ok... ONE night at the Country Inn Suites in Bowling Green, Ky does NOT a honeymoon make). So, believe it or not, my vacation deal finding skillz are quite rusty and I need some help!

Hubby's vacation requests were a)somewhere warm (Kansas still hasn't gotten the memo that it's spring) and b) somewhere fun, lol. I'm tacking on c) somewhere with lots of family fun options that are 4 yr old who doesn't sit still very well appropriate! lol I was thinking maybe somewhere with a beach, as James has never seen the ocean and would go kookoo for all that fun sand!

We are open to anything and anywhere. Some of our ideas were, Hawaii, Virginia Beach and Orlando/Disney.... so advice on those places would be great also.

PLEASE HELP!! I'm begging you!!
