Because of my day job I have set holidays. I get 2 weeks at Christmas, 2 weeks at Spring Break and 2 months off during the summer.
When I have time off I like to take off with my family. Here are 6 Reasons to Take a Family Vacation.
1. The Memories
Your kids will talk about that camping trip or that visit to the zoo for years after you’ve done it. Most importantly, they will remember that they did it with YOU.
2. Life Experience
Yes, kids learn a lot from textbooks but there is no better to teach them about a culture then immersing them in it.
3. Transportation Fun
Who doesn’t like taking a road trip or flying somewhere? Getting there alone is part of the trip and can be so much fun.
There is no better time to re-connect as a family (and disconnect from computers, TVs and more) then when you are on holidays. Major family bonding happens when you’re away.
5. Pure Joy
I will never forget the first time my daughter saw Mickey Mouse or Princess Ariel in person. Seeing the expression on my children’s faces makes my heart feel so happy.
6. Change of Scenery
Yes, we all love our home but sometimes staying in a hotel or condo is just what you need to switch things up (and appreciate what you have). Waking up to a different view for a week is worth it’s weight in gold.
Taking a well planned family vacation can be a huge de-stresser! I’ve always said, everyone is happy when they are at the beach, relaxing, swimming and having fun. There is nothing better for the soul than experiencing this together as a family.
Wether it’s small trips or big adventures, family vacations are extremely important and valuable. Vacations can show your children amazing spots in our big world, create endless memories and make you feel closer than ever.
