Sharing Memories - Winter Vacations (Week 3)

Last week we wrote about Winter Events and Activities in our Sharing Memories - A Genealogy Journey Journal. I hope everyone will join me this week to talk about memories of Winter Holidays and Vacations.

Did you and your family visit other family members or friends over the winter? Did you take trips to somewhere warm and sunny (remember I live in cold snowy climate so going south each winter was something that was a special treat!)

Tell us who you visited, where you went, what you liked best (or least!) about these winter trips. Perhaps you went skiing in Colorado or Utah or Quebec (or Europe), or joined a cruise ship sailing in the Caribean. Share your memories for future descendants to enjoy.

What was the best or the funniest or the worst winter vacation you ever went on - either as a child or as a grown adult with children of your own.

We didn't take any winter holidays when I was a child, so I'm going to write about driving south to Florida and Disneyworld with my 4 year old and 11 year old sons, and ending up spending more time in an Orlando hospital with my youngest, than seeing Mickey Mouse!

Definitely a winter holiday to remember and put on paper for future descendants!

Ah...My Mamaw's house. There were pies and cakes galore along with a turkey and ham. The ceiling fans were always on high because the whole family smoked so I remember always standing next to the gas heater to stay warm. I miss those family gatherings! It's hard to make and keep new traditions when the older generations pass away but still you try and I can't help but wonder what my kids will remember.
