Post-Baby Vacations

My husband and I love to travel and we have quite a long list of places we still want to go.  Some with Connor, some just us two.  We knew when we had a baby that traveling would take a back seat for awhile but we have started to get the itch.  The past few weeks we have started talking about where we want to go for our first trip (without Connor).... but we are waiting until sometime in the Spring or Summer 2014 to go probably. I know we will take some smaller trips before then but this will be our first big trip, just the 2 of us.  
We have decided on Banff in Canada and stay on Lake Louise!  My husband actually lived there for a Summer when he was younger.  His family moved there for his dad's work but they only stayed for a few months.  Ever since the day I met my husband he has told me he wanted to take me there one day.   After seeing pictures of it, hearing his stories and seeing it on Sean's season of The Bachelor I knew we had to go and had to go soon! 
I mean, does it get any better than this???

Living in Texas and growing up in the south means I don't do cold very well, so we know we want to go during the warmer months (although it is definitely not hot).  There are several national parks, tons of golf courses, canoeing and kayaking, hiking, beautiful resorts and so much more.  The water really is THAT blue and clear my husband said.  Yes, count me in!
For our first little vaca WITH Connor, we have talking about renting a little cabin/house a few hours from here in the Texas Hill Country, right on the Guadalupe River for a weekend.  We are thinking about going on a weekend when A&M isn't playing (of course) sometime in late September or October. I have a couple friends who did this over a weekend with their babies and had a great time.  It will be so nice to get away for a short weekend with our little family :) 

How soon did you travel with your baby and without your baby?
Where did you go?

We went over night to lake Charles for jasons company Xmas party when reed was 7 months. With breastfeeding it was too hard to leave him otherwise. Then at 8 months we flew to Colorado with drew for Xmas. First time to leave him for 3 nights was Santa Fe when drew was 15 months. We loved having a solo trip but I wasn't ready before that! Since we travelled with drew to Colorado again and la torretta in Conroe and gone solo without him to San Fran.
