Our July Vacation is starting to shape up.

I just need to find a map and figure out how was are going to drive it. So far I believe that we are going to leave around 5pm from our house on Friday and drive to Cleveland, OH. (About 5h 5 minutes) This will give us a good start for the next day. Maybe we will see the Fleabs for brunch.

Saturday we are leaving from Cleveland to drive to Hershey PA. Another 5 hours. We are planning that day/evening to tour Hershey's Chocolate World. Then head out to the Bangor/Easton area and get a hotel for the night. Sunday we will be visiting the Crayola Factory and maybe some people who live in that area. :) Monday we are planning to drive to Middletown, CT for a day stop there and stay over night there. We will then be heading to the Boston/Plymouth area on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday we are unsure of where and what we are doing. It might be a hang at the hotel and let the kids swim day. Friday we will start our 13-15 hour drive home. I am thinking that we will plan to do it in 2 days. We drive to FL in 1 day, but I just an not up to doing that this time.

If there is anywhere else about in that area that you think would be awesome to see (primarily for the kids) please link me and I will take that into consideration. Once I told Darren about the Crayola Factory, he told me that he had never been to hershey, pa and he would LOVE to go there. So those 2 and plymouth are the big ones that he wants to do.

A little out of your way, but Sesame street place looks like a lot of fun for kids. I think it's about and hour and 1/2 outside of Philly.

We drove from Chicago, through Cleveland and onto Buffalo in one day. It was a very easy ride. Cleveland is a good stopping place, we stopped there on the way home.

I hope you have an AWESOME vacation!

*Waving my hands wildly* We are in the Bangor area, we are in the Bangor area!!!!! We think a stop at Casa de Lee may be in order!!! It's a friendly place that feels like home, lol. And it can even be a traveling circus if you need us to be mobile. :) Let me know the exact date you plan for Bangor and everything else will be off the schedule. :)

I have an idea! At-freaking-lanta!

ok, so there is nothing worth seeing in at-freaking-lanta, but I hear there is this crazy gal there who wants to see you!

'Scuse me but I need to point this out. It will take you FOREVER to get to Montana if you travel east.

LOL Wendi! We were suppose to go out East the Spring 2005. But then I got pregnant, Gabe needed surgery and my step dad got hit while on his motorcycle. We were planning on 2 weeks in a motorhome hitting all the neat places out West like the Black Hills, Yosemite, and about anything else we could fit in. Grand Cayon and Old Tuscon were also on our list.

Maybe in the next few years we will make it out that way. :)

I would visit the Cape if you have time. It has been a million years since I have been there but I always remembered it as being beautiful. Boston, there is just a ton of stuff to do there but I am sure Amy and Lina can fill you in on all that.
