In 2012 we were lucky and managed to take 3 different trips.
In May we went to Connecticut to watch The Princess graduate from design school - finally! We also got to meet the boy's parents and took a fabulously fun side trip to Mystic and Newport.
JB and I also took the train into New York and had dinner with Carolyn and managed to connect and go out for a drink with Bonnie.
It's an amazing place and if you've never been and nature amazes you - go. Please. You won't regret the time spent there.
One day in Wyoming at the Grand Tetons I finally saw a moose in the wild. This is a momma and she had a baby close by. Huge, huge animal. Incredibly beautiful. I'd still like to see a bull moose, but I can die a happy woman now. Check that off the bucket list.
Finally in October we took a birthday trip to Las Vegas. JB had bought a big bad car earlier in the year and it came with a driving class. He was quite excited about going and only a tiny bit disappointed. He wanted to just drive as fast as he could around the oval - a la nascar - and that wasn't this class. But he did have fun and we spent his birthday at the training school.
We also manage to take a couple of little weekend trips closer to home - I can finally say I've been to Snoqualmie Falls. Lived here all my life and never visit the big 'tourist sights'. Isn't that the way? Well we are slowly checking those off the list.
2012 was a good year for us and travel. Not sure what 2013 will hold - but there are rumors about something tropical and a 50th birthday.
