Ask Edmond: What’s your favorite Spring Break memory?
Prairie Vale Elementary School
My favorite spring break was in 2019. My college daughter, Quinn, was studying abroad in Italy. It was amazing to be able to travel with her and see her favorite places. I love, love, loved Venice… and Capri was so amazing. Juliet’s balcony was probably my favorite, though.
Last year was our best! My wife, Leigh, and I took our 17-year-old son, Shawn, skiing with our best friends to Wolf Creek outside of Pagosa Springs, Colorado. The snow was amazing, and we had the best time together. It was our son’s first time to go, and he was a natural on the snowboard!

My best childhood spring break memories include trips to see my grandparents in Breese, Illinois. My family would travel and stay for a weeklong visit. I have wonderful memories of picking strawberries and staying up late to play bingo with them. I remember wanting to win that grand prize – a handmade quilt. Corny, but true.
Not long after getting engaged, my now wife, Amy, and I tested our relationship by taking a spring break road trip to Disney World, Memphis, Savannah, Cocoa Beach, Orlando, Destin, New Orleans… we survived! And it was unforgettable!
We spent last spring break whale and dolphin watching at Dana Point, CA. A passenger jumped off our boat to try and rescue his mother-in-law’s jacket containing a family diamond heirloom. “Man Overboard” was not appreciated by the sea captain.

My favorite spring break was this year. This February marked 10 years since my dad passed, so my mom and I went on a cruise to get away. We spent the week sight-seeing, relaxing, drinking fruity drinks and laughing. It was the perfect disconnect!
