Happy NSD! We are planning a vacation (maybe to see a certain Floridian mouse, but that isn't in stone yet.)

Hi Mary,
I plan on going to my first fabulous CTMH convention!!! I also have a work trip planned to Rochester MN where I worked for many years. I guess I'm kind of excited cause these will be for ME and not worrying about keeping everyone else happy. As far as the family, we are planning a trip to Yosemite if we can afford it after convention....

This summer I will be spending some special time with my daughter and 5 month old grandson! She and my SIL live in St. Louis and I'm in Georgia and I don't get to see them often enough! I have been so spoiled having my other 4 grandchildren close by. So I really look forward to school being out so my teacher daughter can come home for a while!

Wow, plans you say...first off we have sold one of our houses...which leads to packing up all the stuff and consolidating 2 houses into one! This has to be out of the house by June 1st! The 20th of June we have a family wedding up north so we plan to do that then continue on a driving vacation to Colorado, Wyoming and back down heading back to Florida! That about sums up the major plans...then football [ractice starts for my son and we are planning on a lot of waterparks and fun this summer!
