Greg Anderson and his sweet wife Amy are a family of 5. They like to travel but having 3 small kids, it’s hard to enjoy a vacation with everyone constantly on top of one another.
He recently guest posted for another blog and shared his experience staying in a hotel instead of a vacation home. As you will read here, it was not a fun experience.
A Dad’s view on Hotel Divorce – Vacationing with a Family
It was 5:00 a.m. I was in a hotel “suite” with six other people in upstate New York and nobody was sleeping. I had just spoken to my daughters – who were sharing a bed on the far side of the room – for the third time, telling them to keep their hands off one another. My son, in a Pack ‘n Play at the foot of my pull-out sofa bed, was awake and acting as if it were 2:00 in the afternoon. He’d heard my bed squeaking repeatedly as I got in and out to tell the girls to quiet down, and he was up for the day. My in-laws groaned, praying that the kids would simmer down long enough for a few more minutes of sleep, but it wasn’t happening. This isn’t how Amy and I had pictured this “relaxing” hotel stay playing out. Has this ever happened to you?
Imagine coming back from a long day at the theme parks in central Florida and – after you put the kids to bed, of course – taking a dip in your private pool to cool off, or enjoying a glass of wine with your spouse on the veranda. I’m not joking. You can have a vacation like that. I know because I stayed with Global last summer and I’ll be staying with them again in about three weeks.
Greg, Amy, Cailin, Kylie and Parker will be staying with us in a few weeks. They are allowing us to film them while on vacation to share with you how much fun it is to stay in a vacation home over a hotel while doing a Disney vacation. We are excited to be hosting them, and you can see for yourself how a family of five plus grandparents, make vacationing not stressful, a money saver, and truly the best possible vacation you and your family may ever have.
