The family vacation debate is on!

Decisions are never terribly easy when it comes to appeasing the Kirkpatrick (and now Howard) families. We desperately want to go to Australia and New Zealand. We know that when we enter into baby-land, those two countries will be completely out of the question (14-16 hour flights with little ones are not on my top list of situations to experience). Dad is against it because of the weather (our summer is their winter). This, however, is not a problem for me! In fact, the idea of taking a winter vacatation to escape the Sacramento heat, sounds like a phenomenal plan.

Dad's vote originally was for Switzerland. Then, somehow he switched to Machu Picchu. And tonight, my mom informed me that he's now voting for Egypt. In the past four weeks, he's voted for three out of the seven continents: Europe, South America, and Africa. Before our debates are over, he will have come up with countries located on the three remaining continents: Antartica, Asia, and North America - all in a desperate attempt to avoid having to go to Australia.

Come on! Who doesn't want to see one of the most famous buildings in the world: the Sydney Opera House?!? Anyone have any "two cents" to add to the debate, feel free to join in!

I say you press on towards your vision of visiting Australia and New Zealand. Now, I don't know how you'll convince your dad, but that's my two cents.

Absolutely, don't give up!! My mom says New Zealand is beautiful, and I for one, can't wait to see it in the future. My goal is Europe next summer...my dream so don't let go of yours! (sounds much more exciting than Egypt...)
