9 Destinations for a Spring Vacation

We leave bright and early tomorrow for our Stockholm adventure and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t feeling a bit nervous.  It’s the longest we’ve ever left Parker and it feels so strange to be going so very far away. (The furthest we’ve both been together from her before this was a five hour drive to Yosemite!)  I tend to get this way any time I leave her and then once we are on the plane, I usually feel better.
