At this early I am already planning for the vacation activities for my family in time for my husband’s vacation. My husband who happens to work overseas has a yearly 40 days vacation. I want it to be really fun filled and memorable bonding time for us especially to our kids.
I have some destination and activities in mind. We really have to make the most out of the 40 days vacation that is allotted to dear hubby. Actually he can already take his vacation this coming September but I told him that it the kids will be more happy if he will be with us during the Christmas Season.
Since it is Christmas season, most of our time will be spent with family reunions and gatherings. Apart from the usual holiday fun fares – I am also thinking of other destination for our family. Though it is already cold season that time, going to the beach is not a bad idea. Since we are on a tight budget because of the anticipated house renovation, we are eyeing beach resorts in Batangas which is just several hours drive from Manila. But my husband told me that he will really save for a vacation in Subic, Hongkong Disneyland or a Summer Fun at Provo Beach Resort.
I appreciate my husband for this; I know that he always wants the best for me and my kids. But for me, no matter how we spend it, regardless if we are only at home, family bonding time will always be cherished. For the time being that my husband still has to work far from us, we have to adjust to our situation. Nevertheless being apart for the longest time, I am really determined to make this short vacation as memorable and as happy as it can be.
Having a place to go – is a home. Having someone to love – is a family. Having both – is a blessing. ~Donna Hedges
