Have you ever felt like you needed a vacation from your vacation? My sister and I quickly learned that to four teenagers, vacation does not mean relax, kick your feet up, and enjoy some peace and quiet. No, to four teenagers, vacation means "what's the next thing we can do?", "where's the next place we can go?" and of course, "how soon until we eat again?"
In Florida the kids kept the adults busy with trips to paintball, water theme parks, shopping, canoeing, and movies. We also spent each day on the beach snorkeling, swimming, and competing to see who could find the best sea glass.
Back in Georgia, the mountains were also full of adventure -- we hiked over 400 steps to see the highest cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi, went whitewater rafting down the Ocoee River, and explored the rocky creek and water pools behind the cabin.
Finally, we rounded out the vacation with a trip to the Lake. Dad's house is always special to the grandkids. Between the pool, the lake, the golf course and movie theater they never got bored. Kim and I called it quits, however, and aside from one antique shopping trip, we did a whole lot of nothing -- perfect!
