First Family Vacation

20140506-074213.jpg

I’ve traveled often with my dad’s side of the family, so I have so many childhood memories of packing into a minivan with my cousins and driving to faraway places with no air conditioning but plenty of snacks. My dad has always said, “You’ll get many opportunities to travel with your friends, but as you get older, it’s more rare to travel with family, so take advantage of it while you can.”
Today, we’re taking our first family vacation ever with my mom’s side of the family. They actually thought it was a bizarre suggestion when we first brought up the trip, because it’s something they have never done.
This morning, I asked my grandpa when the last time he traveled with his kids was. His answer: “30 years ago.”
