What is the importance of a family vacation?

Growing up I longed for the special time we spent together on our tips as a family. There are several times that as an adult I reflect on those times away from our busy schedules. No school. No work. No chores. No distractions. Just spending time together! Those memories with my parents and siblings will forever be close to my heart.

Now, having children of my own, I strongly desire to create new memories with my boys so that one day they will look back at the wonderful adventures we all took together! The time we spend together as a family is so vital, cultivating friendships and bonds between one another, and it's just so much more fun when you are away from home! My kids will only be young once. I really look forward to traveling and seeing the world through the eyes of little ones! The Lord has Created a beautiful World and I love seeing and admiring his amazing Handiwork! There truly is so much to see!

Our traveling budget is next to nothing, but here are some of the places that we currently have on our wish list for this year (note all the camping, hehe).

Denver, Colorado

Camping in Santa Cruz, California

South Lake Tahoe

...And of course, camping and exploring right in Mimi and Poppys backyard!

  1. There is nothing quite like a family vacation... traveling together - whether it's a day trip or a week of camping - is such a great way to spend time together as a family. (Let's plan that camp night at Mom and Dad's soon!)

  2. Sara,
    I hope you win this contest!! How fun that you included our "park" as one of your family camping adventures! We so look forward to ALL the grandkids pitching tents in our "campsites"! I love you.
    Love, me.
