My husband woke up this morning and said, "I got vacation time that needs to be used. Want to go to Wyoming or Canada?" My reaction - HECK YES - I'd love to take a trip! So it's been a long while since I've been to either place, but today, I'm going to Google what's out in those regions for fun things to do as a family. We'll have 4 days (including travel) to sightsee and explore either Wyoming or Canada with a toddler in tow! We plan to take-off a month from now. So, any recommendations? I'd like to do a B&B type thing, and then be able to drive within reasonable distance to historic sights, etc. Something along those lines would be great. My DH is wanting to do more active stuff like rock climbing but I think he's gonna lose out because (i) we have our daughter and (ii) that isn't sounding very exciting to me. But if there's an outdoorsy activity that is family friendly, I'm all ears for that.
I will try to keep this as brief as possible! Ok, so my husband and I are going to the Dominican Republic for our honeymoon when he gets back from Afghanistan. His block leave is in AUGUST (talk about killer heat in the DR!). While we are there we are basically going to be living on the beach or out on a boat or river or water of some kind! Our hiking trip is even canyoning, so we'll be jumping off of cliffs into water that whole time too!! So what I wondered is how frowned upon it would be to wear shorts and a t shirt or whatever over my bathing suit while we were there? I know how sacred garments are and what they represent. Obviously on Sunday we are going to church and I'll wear my garments (he served his mission there and knows some people, so that will be neat!!) and if we aren't going to be at the beach all day or out on the boat I plan on wearing them, but on the days where we are going to go get breakfast then drive to where our boat is or whatever, am I doing a big no no wearing shorts over my bathing suit rather than changing out of my garments? Basically I'd hardly be wearing them. I am not trying to sound like I'm finding excuses not to wear them, but the heat is also an obvious factor, and as I am not really used to it, if there is an issue with that (not just getting sweaty, but like...heat stroke kinda thing) is it bad not to wear them? I know it's one of those things that is a personal decision between you and Heavenly Father, but I wanted to hear your opinions.
I hope I'm posting this in the correct forum... I'm new here, this is my very first post. My husband and I have been married for 1 year, and are ready to be sealed in the temple! We live in Arizona, and our families live in Utah and California. We want to make a big deal about this (obviously its a big deal) and invite our families to join us in Hawaii. But I have never been there before and don't know where we should stay. Does anyone have any tips on where to stay and what to do??? Thanks in advance for any responses :)
