Spin Cycle--Spring Break

This week the Spin Cycle is about spring break.  spring Break has been happening at schools all over the country since mid March (when we had ours) and many are having their's right now.
Growing up, Spring Break never meant much.  I got a week off school until I hit sixth grade, but we never went anywhere.  By the time I was in sixth grade spring break had been down graded to a long 5 day weekend, not an entire week.  I didn't get a week long Spring Break until I went to college.  Those were almost always spent going home for laundry and sleep, not going some where fun (and expensive).
Nick and I have traveled for Spring Break on occasion. We went to exciting Omaha to see friends one year.  Another year we went to San Antonio to see friends.  That trip was more fun. We also spent one Spring Break trip in Deadwood, South Dakota (where I cleaned up at the slots).  And when Turbo was not quite two, we went to the Grand Canyon via Arches and also saw Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, and Dinosaur National Monument.  All in 5 days.   Lots of windshield time.
Actually, I think that about sums up our Spring Break trips.  We drive.  A lot.  But then, we really like to road trip.  I did a Spin Cycle not too long ago about our most recent Spring Break road trip.
So, with uncooperative weather for most of our Spring Breaks here at home, I think, as the boys get bigger, we will be going out of town more often for Spring Break.  Road trips most likely, that's just the way we roll.

So what are you doing for spring break?  Or what did you do for spring break?  Spin it up and link it up with Gretchen.

Seriously, I think that the thing that I most regret about my choice of Jimmy as a spouse is that he doesn't like car tripping. And yes, Spring Break is the perfect time for it. Sigh...

You will be linked momentarily.

I got married one year on spring break so we tend to celebrate, even if only for one night.

Road trips are our favorite also.

I don't think I've ever done anything for Spring break...

We already had our spring break a few weeks ago. We went on a weekend vacation and spent lots of family time together. Then we moved...boo!

Our Spring Breaks were not that exciting as kids either. :-)
