Give Me Five Monday

The 'Give Me Five' Monday meme is designed to share fun information with each other in a simple short list! Here's how it works. Each week, she will put out a random topic from my list of topics and you share 5 answers of your choice on the given topic and link back here! You can add photos, links or stories or just a simple list of your own of 5 things that relate to the topic as it pertains to you and your life experiences. It doesn't have to be in any order of importance unless otherwise specified.

Our misson this week: Give Me Five vacation destinations you've already enjoyed or would like to some day.

Our best vacation to date is not the kind that appeals to most people. We went to the Huck Finn Jubilee in Victorville, CA. We camped in a tent right by the lake for 4 days. They had a huge craft show, more food than you can imagine, Music all day every day (Patty Loveless was there when we went), a car show, the CA state arm wrestling championship, dancing every evening, a circus, games for kids and adults, fishing and paddling in the lake, and it was just the best time of our lives. There wasn't a minute we didn't like. If you live in the Southern CA area, you should go. It's always on Fathers Day weekend.

Our #2 vacation would be Las Vegas. We got married there, honeymooned there, and lived there for over a year. It is awesome!

Our #3 would be the Reanaissance Plaesure Fair , also in southern CA. We again camped there for three days, and had a lot of fun.

We both want very badly to go to Hawaii. Photobucket

And also St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands.Photobucket

The camping vacation sounds like a blast! My husband has been to Las Vegas and loved it, and he says he would like to go back sometime with me. Hawaii and the Virgin Islands sound very warm and inviting right now!

My husband wants to go to Las Vegas, though he hasn't quite convinced me. I'd rather go to Hawaii or the Virgin Islands - anywhere with a beach.
