In what way is the South unique from other places you've lived or traveled?

Most people in the South have amazing hospitality. They are (usually) willing to help others out, friendly and go out of their way for others. I have always lived in the South, (born and raised in Texas, and now live in Florida) but when I have traveled to Northern states they have been way more busy and hectic then the laid back-ness of the true South. =)

What outdoor activity do you enjoy doing most with your kids?

I absolutely love and enjoy going on nature walks. The girls love to look at the random different things they see and find and I love just being outdoors exercising in fresh air. =) I have a list of outdoor activities on my 'must do list' that I will eventually be doing with my girls though like: water tubing, skiing, fishing, camping and so much more!

What's a great destination for a family vacation in the South?

Everyone loves going to Disney World in Orlando, which I think really is amazing but it is hard to go there with the park fairly dead...(my husband hates really crowded theme parks). I think Sea World, Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, and Universal are awesome family vacations as well if you are looking for theme parks. We took our girls to Adventure Island (its the water park part of Busch Gardens) and they had a blast. I'm a water park girl though. =) I an amazing family vacation spot is Gatlinburg, TN. It is beautiful and has tons to do for everyone!
