I am starting to think about our next trip and our choices are May or July/August. If we go in May it will depend on snow days again and one or two would really cut our trip short. If we wait until my DH finishes his summer courses we would have 2 full weeks before we had to be back for him to start baseball practice.
Right now our May trip would start on 24th (resport card day–1/2 day of school) and end on June 3rd. It would be 11 days with a late arrival and an early flight out our last day so really 9 days in the parks. This would also be stressful planning because of snow days, I coudln’t buy airline tickets until at least March (and even that wasn’t late enough last year!!).
A July trip would start after my DH finishes giving his finals on July 23rd and we would have to be home no later than the August 5th. This trip could be 14 days if we used every day for the trip (fat chance of that getting by my DH!) but I’m sure my DH would want to be back a day early so he could have a day to rest before he had to start baseball practice.
We really liked going in May last year. The crowds were lower and it was cooler than July but if we wait until July we could have a longer trip. What would you do?
