This was my first trip with Dan and the first time traveling without my parents. In hind sight, I'm not sure why my parents let me travel to Mexico with my boyfriend and our friend when I was 19, but at the time it seemed like a fine idea. We stayed at the Dreams Resort in Cabo San Lucas. This is still one of my favorite trips and definitely a place I would love to go back to, especially with this view from our room!
Two: Caribbean Cruise
This was one of our married bucket list items that we wanted to do before having kids, and we did. We've gotten the opportunity to go on many fun trips, but we both wanted to see the Caribbean before starting a family. Add in the fact that we also fit in a spring training game to watch the Braves and it was the perfect vacation!
This is a summer trip we've taken to central Oregon several times with family. It's a sports weekend with different races taking place each day. The entire weekend is mostly spent outdoors either running, biking, swimming or kayaking and it makes me never want to leave! Just a 3 hour drive from home, it's definitely a trip we will take again and again as Harper gets older!
Four: Las Vegas
We've traveled here several times, some times with friends and sometimes just the two of us. No matter the group, it is always such a fun place to visit, and I'm always up for a return trip! Our Babymoon, and room upgrade on that trip probably top my list for favorite visits there though!
This trip was just the two of us! We snuck in some time at Disney, a bit of exploring around San Diego and Coronado, and of course a Braves baseball game! It was nice get away just the two of us, exploring new places and getting to visit a new stadium! My goal is to try to visit all of the active baseball stadiums, with most of the games being Braves games of course :)
This was a family trip and sort of family reunion of sorts. It was a week spent with some of our favorite people getting in lots of laughs and time outdoors. I'm so excited to travel back there in a couple months to do more of the same, but this time with Harper too!
Seven: Riviera Maya, Mexico
This was our honeymoon trip, and while it definitely didn't go as planned, we still loved visiting this area!
Eight: Mexican Cruise
My last spring break of college, Dan and I drove 18 hours down to San Diego and took a cruise from there to Mexico. It was my first time on a cruise and our second trip to Cabo San Lucas. This is the only real spring break trip I ever took and definitely one to remember!
Nine: Riviera Maya, Mexico - Again
This time we traveled with our good friend, who we also went to Cabo with on our first trip to Mexico together. We stayed at The Grand Mayan, a gorgeous resort, went snorkeling, saw the ruins and just had a great time in the sun in the middle of December. The perfect winter escape!
While this is probably the least glamorous of any of our top vacations, it was one of my favorites. I moved to Oregon at the beginning of my freshman year of high school so it was so fun to travel back to where I spent my first 15 years and get to show Dan around. From the food to my old schools and house, it was fun to be able to share all my memories of a place that is so special to me. Plus since I grew up just an hour from Niagara Falls, we were even able to sneak in a day trip there and a ride on the Maid of the Mist.
