We can talk about what we see, what we have done, what we want to do – and of course we can eat good things and always have plenty to drink as traveling tends to dehydrate us.

In Maine, there are 32 state parks and we hope to visit them all eventually. 8 down- 24 to go! How many does your state have? My family is keeping a life list!

    We don’t very often get to travel as a family for my kids live in different areas of the country, so whenever we are able ti travel as a family it is quite an event. The most fun is to travel withmy 2 yr old grand daughters and see things a long the road through their eyes. What we as adults take for granted, they see in a brand new light and their excitement is contagious. And oh so much fun!!!

    Simply leave a comment on this post telling me what you love most about traveling with your family. You can get up to TEN entries total, just leave a separate comment for reach reason up to 10.

    What i love most about traveling with my family is that there are a lot of us, 1) so there is always something entertaining going on to witness or hear, 2) someone always has a joke/inside joke, 3) never a dull moment in the car rides, 4) good times and memorable memories to look back on, 5) i also love that we bring our craziness where ever we go, it doesn’t just stay at home, 6) i love the fun car rides games to buy time to our destination, 7) taking lots of pictures of random and silly moments, 8) getting lost, 9) site seeing, 10) eating the snacks.

    The memories that we make with one another. I promise you that these memories are not picture perfect by any means. There will be fighting, maybe some yelling, and chances are some tears shed. But none of that matters when it is out weighed by laughter, smiles, and family bonding that will make us all forget about the other things.
