Are you going to, or did you already, take a summer vacation this year... to where?
We are not planning a trip this summer. Our boy is 2 1/2 and we just started potty training. That is one of the reasons why we aren't going anywhere. I think a trip would get in the way on constant monitoring of the potty situation. Plus, it's just not in the budget. I also think he wouldn't get much from going on an actual vacation, may be more work then vacation. Know what I mean?
We did go to the Tulip Festival this year. It's in Orange City, IA. The town is primarly Dutch and every May, they have a three day festival with parades, authentic Dutch clothing, AWESOME food, and of course, tulips!
We also we went to the Sioux Falls Zoo for the day. It was Jack's first time to a zoo and he loved it. We are lucky enough to be within a hours distance to two great zoos. The Sioux Falls is smaller, so it was perfect for his first trip. I'm hoping we can squeeze a trip to the Omaha Zoo when it starts to cool down. It's huge and it would take hours to see every single thing.
