Conkling Christmas Vacation


It's not a Conkling vacation without the famous chalkboard list that we gleefully make the week before, as we anticipate a few days off and family time. This year's Conkling Christmas vacation included in-town outings, out-of-town outings, and special treats that we enjoy more when there's no morning alarm clock. 

It took us a few days after vacation, but we did it...we checked off every thing we wanted to do on our Christmas vacation list! 

Brax mustered up the courage to look at the big rocket outside the Cosmosphere doors...


We picked a not-so-busy night to look at Christmas lights...


Mama only endured a mini headache while playing games with the kidlets at the arcade...


We rang in the New Year on New Year's Eve at noon at the Firehouse Cafe over pancakes, eggs, and bacon...


And we rang in the New Year on New Year's Eve at 10 p.m. (Mackie and Brax) and 11 p.m. (mama and daddy)...because it's always midnight somewhere!


We wrapped up our final to-do last weekend as the kidlets gleefully watched John Wayne's "Comencheros" with daddy in the tent they made and actually slept in (all night long! in the basement! by themselves!)

What a joyous break, filled with memories and giggles to last us through our next adventures during Spring Break!
