Her version of freedom includes sleeping till noon and then swimming the rest of the day; getting a pedicure; going shopping with grandma for those things that mom won't buy because they aren't 'needs'; eating whatever she wants whenever she wants and this includes ice cream for dinner (yeah, grandma, she told on you!) Fortunately, this is only the first week. The 2nd week is a bit more structured. It only takes me half of the remaining summer to re-program her.
Don't get me wrong. We love our daughter more than anything in the world! She's reallly a fantastic kid and we're very proud of her. Generally, she's a joy to have around. It's just that this two weeks is a very important time for her parents. We get to take a little time to 'reconnect' as a couple. We've made this a priority since our daughter was very young and like I've commented before in this post, she understands that this is important.
Our daughter has always been quite 'portable'. We've taken her with us just about everywhere except during the aforementioned vacation times. This year, vacation for mom & dad is going to include some of the following: Music and Wine on the Lawn at Waltz Vineyards; A Ghost Tour of Lancaster;
dining out at Greenfield Restaurant and/or The Orchard.
I think I need to make a list.

We've done our share of rack cards, print advertising in newspapers & magazines and social media like Facebook and Twitter. This year, we decided to pull out all the stops. At the end of April, we produced a commercial for our association. We would not have been able to do this without the help of our local CVB and a matching grant from the state. It was a long day and a lot of people worked very hard to turn out a great product. You can see it here:
Another very similar version of the commercial is airing this week and next on cable stations and WGAL. We had great participation from the association members. Thanks to Bob & Vivian Abel of the Pheasant Run B&B - they were so gracious in hosting the event.
Just wait to see what we do next!
