There are all sorts of reasons why traveling with kids is not easy. But there is nothing we love to do more, as a family, together, than to travel. We feel so grateful to have the privilege to prioritize travel the way we do. We only see a tiny slice of this great big world. But the tiny slice we get to see is one we feel so thankful for.
We are raising three little Travel Lovers. They are into it. In a big way. One of the things I always think about during our travels together is the fact that so much of the fun of it for us isn’t even in the actual experiences, but in the entire experience itself. It isn’t just what we go there for, but it is the going there itself too. Part of our Colorado Rocky Mountain High was the adventure and bonding of simply going somewhere, and doing something, together.
“Now his life is full of wonder…”
So, now we are home for awhile. And life resumes to our normalcy. Which is good too. But we have these trips in our memories and they live large in our family folklore and they sit in us and shape us and impact who we are in the world. This one was a really good one. We’re still feeling it. It feels wondrous.
