Following up on my earlier post, Clues to a Great family vacation, here are some highlights of the rest of our week:
Day 4: Read!
We got a chance to meet many of the children of the Half Moon staff at the beautiful Children’s Annecy Village.
I talked with the parents about my vision for creating educational preschool television shows and then read one of our Super Why books to the children. They even read & acted out the story with me. I was able to sign and give away books to each child. They were smart, funny, sweet and beautiful. It was a highlight of the trip.
Day 5: Family Time
The best part of vacation for me, is when I can unplug (within reason, of course) and spend the majority of the day with my favorite people. Sure, hustling around the streets of Paris is fun, but to slow down the often frenetic pace of my day to come to a place like Half Moon with my husband & girls and just chilllllllll…it’s what the doctor ordered.
We’ve been searching for a resort that has the right mix of luxurious elegance, fun for the kids, friendly staff, good food & beautiful accommodations. We found it and would love to stay!
Fave quotes from the trip:
