“Is it worth it to take kids on trips they won’t remember?”

    Honestly, we didn’t have to look back in hindsight to see if it was worth it. During those road trips, it was easy to see right then, in the joy and excitement in all of your faces, that the trips were overflowing with worth!

    I really enjoyed the “ride” through your story of your childhood travels. As someone who considers herself not very adventurous, I have to wonder if this would have been different had our family traveled & explored more of the country when I was a kid? This makes me want to pack up the van and go on a roadtripping adventure with our crew. 🙂

      Thank you Brandi! Reading through this one again gave me the same feels 😉 This post was actually written while we were on a 7-week road trip with our boys last year. Definitely not easy to do with young kids, and we were living in a small trailer while we traveled–but I would never take it back. Such an adventure! Thank you for reading 🙂
