We’re headed to Palm Springs later this month. We can hardly wait! Last time I checked (five minutes ago) the weather was forecast to be in the nineties! Woo hoo!
We’re meeting two sets of friends there. We had a moment when we were all going to rent a house together, but I decided that maybe it wasn’t the best idea. I mean, I love my friends. Love them. But I kind of want to keep it that way.
Between our three families, we’ve got six adults and six kids. That’s a lot of people for one house, right? Also – the kids range in age from kindergarten to middle school. There’s a lot that happens between kindergarten and middle school.
So we compromised by all staying at the same hotel. I just think that is a much better plan. I got trained by family camp, where we all had our own cabins but shared common spaces. We’ll meet up – all three families – at the pool, or take day trips together, but then we can also have the space for our family to just chill and watch Modern Family episodes if we want and make all of our stupid inside jokes without having to explain them to anyone.
Do you go on vacation with friends? How does it work out for you? Anyone have any tried and true advice for making sure things stay fun?
