There’s a funny saying I heard that goes, “I need to rest from my vacation.” I have always found this comical because it sounds so odd since vacations are supposed to be relaxing. However, as an adult, I have learned that after most vacations, you need about a week to get back into the swing of things.

As I return from the heels of a fantastic birthday trip, I must admit that the jetlag got me and that I will rest this entire weekend after my short vacation. This week is also the kickoff for the spring break season for schools. Although husbae and I do not currently have children, many of our friends are gearing up for the notorious week of “spring break fun” and either packing their bags, stocking their fridges, or mentally preparing themselves for the little people in their homes to gallivant in the delight that school is out.

Social media never fails me for a good laugh as parents post and comment about how eager they are for the school doors to open on Monday morning. What does the spring break season look like in your home? Is it a time of year for you to take solo or family trips? While some of us may be unaffected by spring break, I curated a list for you that should be fun for either the whole family or you and a few friends to enjoy.
