At about eighteen or so, family vacations pause. You go off to college and there is only time for friends and your boyfriend/girlfriend. I have not been on a family vacation with MY family in over a decade. This statistic will change this week. My mom, dad, and one sister, as well as her husband their four kids and last but not least, The Max will be loading up in two vehicles and driving out West. They are driving out FROM the West to Minnesota and I will be heading back with them…on a family vacation with more people than ever before. Here’s a shot of them at some prison in Montana a couple days ago.
Yup. Add two more people and it’s going to be loud. I thought I was going to have to skip the road trip this year, but I am going to end the summer with the fun this year. There will be tears from little kids about everything from spilled milk to toy sharing. It’s gonna be awesome. Usually I treasure the solitude of driving all alone for three days. While I will miss that, I will be with family…a whole lot of it!
