You bet, Every February as it is a slow time of winter and a great time to escape the snow and cold. During the rest of the year it is tough to get away for a week, so a couple of days here or there is all that is needed t o recharge.

I used to go several times per year and now not so much. That has a little to do with the age of our girls too however. Once they get a bid older we'll be going away more often.
