I don't remember the exact year we did this. We had all 4 children at home, and it was a tight time (financially) for us. Vacation time was rolling around and we did not have the funds to take a vacation as we normally did.
We've always been one who sees the glass half full & not half empty, and we believe in making Lemonade out of Lemons. SO..........
We decided to vacation at home in Tulsa!!!
- We would get up every morning and go out to breakfast and then begin the sightseeing and activities we had chosen for the day.
- We ate lunch and dinner out each day.
- We would return home at the end of the day and fall into our own beds to sleep.
- The next day we would do the same and so on.
Even though we had lived in Tulsa a number of years there were a lot of places and things to see that we had never taken the time, or had the time, to visit. This was our time to do just that.
We had a wonderful time and now that all our children are adults they will all tell you this is one vacation that they remember along with the trips to Disney World , Grand Canyon and various other trips we took during those years.
I posted about this and the places we visited that year in Tulsa back on June 6, 2007.Go here if you'd like to read that post: http://penlesswriter.blogspot.com/2007/06/vacation-memories.html/
