We are planning to do some fun traveling this summer. Now, our families are very spread out, so all our family vacations revolve around visiting relatives! Thankfully, we like our relatives!
To keep traveling affordable, we use our Southwest Airlines Visa for most of our purchases. The Engineer travels for work too, so we link our Visa to his Southwest Rapid Rewards account. Currently we have four free round trip tickets--yippee! (By the way, Southwest recently sent me a special offer to pass along to my friends. If you get a Southwest Visa card, you get a free round trip ticket after you use it for the first time, and I'll be given 25% of the required credits for a round trip. So if you're interested, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll get you hooked up.)
In August we'll head to Arizona to visit my parents. The kids will be in heaven--a week to play with Grammy and Sampa!
We'll leave from there and immediately fly up north to visit The Engineer's parents in northern California. The kids will love seeing Grandma, Grandpa, and Gigi!
And at some point we're going to take a road trip to visit my dad's mom. I haven't seen Grandma since Chickie was 15 months old. (And I can't even find a photo from that trip!) I definitely want to introduce Grandma (and various cousins, aunts, and uncles) to Zoodle, and to let Chickie get reacquainted with them. The drive is 12 hours without kids (so probably a few hours longer than that for us!) but it'll be worth it!
Are you planning to travel this summer? If so, I'd love to hear about it!
