Gratituesday: Vacations!

Join us for Gratituesday at Heavenly Homemakers!

Vacations are such a wonderful blessing!

Time to just relax with family!

No schedule! No phone! No TV! No computer!

Just the family...together!

I love it!

My family was blessed with being able to take a vacation a few weeks back!

We started the week off camping with both my parents and my husband's parents! It was a wonderful experience! The kids had a great time!

We rented two small, rustic, cabins at a wonderful campground! We had campfires everynight as well as campfire coffee every morning! {Mmm! My favorite type of coffee to drink!}

We visited Gettysburg National Park. What an experience! I only hope to be able to return when my kids are older so they can truly appreciate what took place there!

Next, we headed to Idlewild Park! It is a great family park! The kids are able to ride many of the rides such as the Whip, Ferris Wheel, and Paratrooper! Plus, they also have a waterpark, so it is like you are getting two parks in one! {So very cool!}

My favorite part of Idlewild has to be Story Book Forest!

Here is the Land of Once Upon a Time...
Step through the pages of this big Story Book...
And visit the people an places every child knows...
...and Loves.
Here dreams are real...
...and so are your Story Book friends.

Revisiting favorite nursery rhymes with my kids such as Mother Goose, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Three Little Pigs, and Jack and Jill! Story Book Forest is a popular part of Idlewild. When you hear the mention of Idlewild Park, you can't help but think of Story Book Forest!

Our week ended with some fun times at my parents pool as well as a birthday cookout for my brother-in-law! {great way to end a vacation week with yummy cook-out food!}

Vacations, whether they are spent at some fancy beach-front resort, or in the comfort of your own home, are always a treat when they are spent with the ones God has blessed ya with!

I am so very thankful for the week I got to spend with my blessings!
