Why the guilt?

Holidays should be guilt-free zones!

Guilt? What for?

You're creating memories

Fourth trip in four years, leaving my baby business for three weeks, taking kids out of school. I get a little responsible every now and then. I could do this with that money.... but my girls are getting older and there are things that need to be done SO GUILT is subsiding.

We are going to have an amazing family holiday that even DH is excited about. Me maybe not so much about the cruise but gotta give it a go ONCE.

By the time September rolls around there will be no guilt

Ah, but think of the wonderful memories you will be creating! Family holidays like these are worth their weight in gold!

But....you're living life. And what's money anyway if you don't enjoy life?

So true. We do have a rule in our house, no living with what if's We just do.

We are very funny, we talk about doing things like this for ages and then one day we just go. DO IT. It always feels strange for 24 hours, like an impulse buy. It wears off. We get a lot of joy out of traveling with the kids and we love it as well. I promise guilt will be gone when I wake up tomorrow.

Absolutely. This year, all we've had is constant reminders that life is too short. Just. do. it. And enjoy!

Here's to a guilt-free morning after.

Too true! We have decided to live for the present as you have no idea what is around the corner (as shown by the recent passing of our friend, at a much too young age )

And impulse holidays are THE BEST!

Thanks PIO. It is his wife and 2 kids who are now coming with us on our holiday - a holiday to DL that they had planned to do together, but never got the chance (they were going to go last October, but he was diagnosed with cancer in Feb and passed away 2 months ago). I think it will be a rather bittersweet holiday for them, for that reason. But I will try to make it packed with as much fun as I can!

And this is why we have splashed out and booked GCH. My friend needs some of life's luxuries right now!

But enough - this is a FUN thread!

I have looked at the Super Shuttle for transfers in San Fran - anyone had any experience using them?

And has anyone booked a limo service (thinking of this for GCH to LAX)? Is there a particular company I should be looking at?

I booked a limo through Super Shuttle on our last trip. Price was good. No complaints.

Where did you use them? Anaheim to LAX? Can I ask the approx price you paid? Also, I'm not sure a standard limo will fit all of us, so we probably need a van or SUV (which to me defeats the whole reason for hiring a limo! I want something that looks the part! )

We leave on the 7th. and return on the 29th

We are taking the girls who will be 13 and 11. DD1 will turn 14 on the flight home. They have no idea and we wont be telling them until atleast the week before we go. They are missing 9 school days and I just dont care.

So
IOA
WDW at POFQ
Cape Canaveral
3 night Disney Dream cruise
Washington DC
New York

Very very excited.
AWIDY congrats on the booking! Your itinerary looks fab. Love that you're not going to tell the girls until 1 week before. At least you won't have to talk in code.

Had a look at your dates on another thread and your stay at POFQ will overlap with ours. I'll have to keep an eye out for you.

I want to say $165 from LAX to DLH. There was six of us with 8 bags and a set of golf clubs by this stage. Will find my notes to be sure.
