When I was on leave with M we were able to make a summer trip down to southern Ontario [How We Spent our Summer Vacation: Part One, How We Spent our Summer Vacation: Part Two, How We Spent our Summer Vacation: Part Three] and we’re hoping to do it again this year. Matt calls it the tour de bebe.
That’s our largest travel and adventure goal for 2017 — with me off work, and him with more vacation time, plus M likely being out of preschool, we want to visit family and take some time for ourselves down south, too.
Goal two? More local adventures! This is enough of a goal that we’re considering buying a stupid expensive stroller so that we can get out with both kids more effectively, even in winter (think bike trailer/jogger/other optional configurations; well worth it if we use it for the next few years and always keeping great resale value on the local market!). I want to hit the beach more, because last summer was so busy we barely got out, but I also want to take M outside for fresh air year-round, and A, too.
Ideally we’ll be saying yes to more things, and jumping on opportunities whether it’s for travel, hobbies, classes, what have you — I want this to be a year of fun, trying new things, and heading back to our old favourites for some reconnection.
