Summer time is a great chance to build the Assets of Family Communication and Support with a little something called the family vacation. After I write that sentence, in the back of my mind I hear, dun, dun, dun.
The family vacation, no matter how monotonous, can be memories that last a life time. If they do, as adults, we should try to make them as good as possible.
Now for those of you who don’t know me very well, I’m as cheap as the day is long, so I certainly don’t mean a trip where we indulge in every purchase the dears would enjoy.
I mean making it a trip they don’t spend crying, rolling their eyes at you or wishing they were home after you just spent all that money.
I think, or I should say, I hope that we all have at least one fond memory. Again, by fond, I don’t necessarily mean one that would need to be recreated.
A family trip for us always involved a car. Now, boys and girls, at one time we didn’t even have seat belts in cars, could fold down seats and even lay in the back of the car.
One of the trips I recall the most is when we were driving north from Florida. We didn’t have audio books, portable DVD players and there were no dollar menus at fast food restaurants.
