a) drive to (no more than 4-5 hrs away max)I'd also love to add e) is warm to the list, but I just don't think there's anywhere in driving range that we can expect to be warm by mid-March. Sigh. My sister and her husband are on a beach in Mexico even as we speak...
b) take Kavi (ideally would be if they had some sort of toddler entertainment/childcare, but that's not a requirement)
c) take Ellie (both because we'd miss her, and because doggie daycare would add another chunk of money to the whole project)
d) be nice and relaxing -- being off the grid in terms of internet might actually be a plus
All I can think of so far are B&B's in the Wisconsin area (would any allow dogs?), but there must be other types of options, no?
Alternately, Kev and I could just go away for two days and leave Kavi with Jarmila; the costs would work out about even, I think. So I suppose that's another possibility, and might be more relaxing.
