Stay-cation 2015

In February, our family has planned on going on vacation to CA. I had time off from work and so did Dad. We girls had all our summer clothes out and ready to be packed. Mom had even cooked all the food for our trip and froze most of it. And then because of family situations (that I have mentioned in past posts), we did not go. 

It was going to be a big vacation for the year, 10 days long. We were excited. We felt we had made the right choice by staying home, but it didn't make it much easier! Each passing day of our "vacation" was tough. So we pretended we were on vacation anyway! Even though we went back to normal life. We still did a couple fun things during that time. 

One of those days, we were out shopping and I happened across a keychain that I thought was cute. Mom said something along the lines of, "why not get it? We are on vacation". See it is my tradition to buy keychain a while on trips. They are my keepsake and it is a fun way to remember those times. So anyway, I thought this "trip" may not have turned out the way I wanted, but I want to remember this time and the events surrounding. So I bought the keychain!
