We try to get out at least every other month even if it's just for a short quick getaway. We usually do 2 big/long trips a year. One at the end of summer and one over Thanksgiving week.
This past Thanksgiving we spent a week in the Davis Mountains in West Texas.
This summer we plan on hitting SanAntonio for SeaWorld and Fiesta Texas for a few days and then head down to Corpus Christi for a week at the coast.
Coming Thanksgiving hasn't been planned yet. It's a tossup between Davis Mountains again (I love that place) and Palo Duro Canyon in the Texas Panhandle. Guess we'll see where the little bosses want to go.
