Our very BIG vacation plans

Meet Carl & Ellie of Disney Pixar's UP!

If you have not seen this movie, you need to. It is a MUST see! Childhood adventure sweethearts, Carl & Ellie insprired us to take our dream vacation. Where is their's? Paradise Falls, in South America. These two adventure lovers had a little penny jar to save and everything.

Our Very BIG vacation plans.....
Our goal for next year is the South Pacific. We really want to go to Tahiti or Fiji. Beautiful, natural, warm and tropical islands half way around the world. Places where your rooms are out over the water in water bungelows.....literally.

Only problem.....VERY VERY expensive.
Fiji at Sunset


So, inspired by Carl & Ellie's attempt to save for their dream vacation, it also insprired me. Jack had a little surprise when he came home from work one night.....I had made something that day....

Our "Paradise Falls" fund. I'll be saving our pennies, because you can bet that I will be vacationing in the South Pacific next year!

Thank-you Carl & Ellie for your inspiration and love for adventure

Melissa, Just got a chance to look through your blog- looks like you guys have been busy and having lots of fun! I think the Tahiti/ Fiji idea sounds great, although of course I wish it was Uganda. You can be like the Up characters and take your house there on balloons...! Love to you and Jack. Gwyn
