14 Fun February Vacation Picks

family-day-decordova.jpgOh my word, is February vacation upon us already? Laurel is beyond excited to take it down a notch and spend the next nine days in her jammies. I kind of wish I could too! Also, I'm really hoping that this vacation period brings with it the release of our family from the plague -- after eight very long days, Violet finally perked up last night and started giggling and causing trouble again (I never thought I'd be so happy to see her make giant messes everywhere!). Anyway, today I wanted to round up a few picks for the weekend + several for next week so you can plan accordingly if you are, like us, enjoying a February staycation. Enjoy!
1. February 18: Explore color at this family day event. Click through on the link to see the image shown partially in the thumbnail above -- it is breathtaking (if you don't see it immediately, refresh your browser until you do as they have rotating images)!

2. February 18: Go on a folk art exploration.
