Sizzling Summer Vacation Spectacle Blog Carnival

Summer is just around the corner.  And I’m ready!  I can’t wait to don my swimming suit large coverup and get wet.  I’m also looking forward to our summer vacation:  7 days at Family Camp!  
I thought it would be fun to link up at the end of summer and share our Vacation adventures, blog carnival-style! Some of my best vacation memories are the unplanned, unexpected moments that had me pulling my hair out.  So, don’t be afraid to bare it all, well, keep the swim suit on, please, this is a family blog.  
If you have a 14 day World Tour planned, we want to turn green with envy.  If you aren’t planning a big vacation this summer, link up with a day trip post and pictures.  Whatever it is, share it!
Join the fun on Friday, August 29th.  (Mr. Linky will probably go up late, the night before).  
And, oh, I forgot to mention, every hour I will draw a random door prize winner from the Mr. Linky participants.  The door prizes will have a ‘vacation/travel’ theme to help you capture your memories or plan for your next trip (like a vacation journal, digital photo frame, picture frames, jewelry and more!  (If you’d like to get a little advertisement to your online store, contact me about donating a door prize.  I will link to all the donations.  Just email me if you’re interested.)

    Of Course I want to play! I have added the link to my side bar! We are going to FL in less than 2 weeks and away to DC and Ohio so our summer is full of Vacation fun!

    I’m going to be stupid for a second and ask for a little clarification. Are you wanting for us to do this ONLY on the 29th or are you wanting us to do this UP TO the 29th?? I have a tendency to forget my funny stuff if I have to hold it. haha!

    Also, I have a Disney World planning blog, its I would be HONORED if you’d consider putting something about it linked with the vacation thing. I know moms usually end up planning these WDW trips and most dont have the time to go all over the internet searching for tips. My goal is to try to make it easier to plan right there on my blog.

    Anyways, you dont have to, but I’d love for you to consider it. I’d respect it either way. :)

    Blessings, Krissy

    CLARIFICATION: This is just a ONE day link ’em carnival. I just wanted to get it out there to my readers so they could share it with their readers and so on. I also wanted you all to keep this little carnival in mind, so when the post-vacation blues set in, you’ll have something to remember your trip with!

    Count me in! This summer we are making the move from Asia to Europe! And while everything we own is in transit we will do 5 weeks stateside. From TX to KY to DC. Should be fun, but OH MY I am tired just thinking about it!
    I will have to remember to save some surprises when I blog this summer just for the sizzling spectacular. What a great idea!

    This is a new site for me, so I will join in the fun. Every July we go to Hilton Head for a week of sun, sun, sun + sunscreen. This year, we body boarded every day. If you have never tried it, you must. It will turn you into a kid again. Yeah!!
