So we currently have two trips booked - Saturday February 19 to Sunday, February 27, 2022 (Presidents week) and Tuesday, April 19, to Wednesday, April 27, 2022. We are reaching a point when we will have to decide on which dates to take - as flights for Southwest open in a few weeks.
Part of our calculus is when our kids, DS11 and DS4 can be vaccinated, so holding off to April might be the safe choice there. But otherwise,
- Feb would be sooner, and no school would be missed.
- April will have later park openings, Flower and Garden (our favorite festival), and possibly lower crowds, although we would be arriving two days after a late Easter.
- The April trip would require missing 3 days of school on the tail end - which used to bother me but does less after two years of a pandemic.
So, decisions, decisions. I hate having to push off our trip (originally postponed from 2020) another two months, but it kind of seems like that may be the better choice for us.
Anyways, just what’s going through my head on a Sunday morning as we wait for Tropical Storm Henri to hit…
