Today I am thankful for family vacations. It has always been important to me to make memories for our family. One way we have been able to do this, is by taking regular family vacations. We are lucky to live by our family, so we see them a lot. But there is something magical that happens when you experience new things in new places, together!!! The Clyde's always take an annual Disneyland trip all together. It's a place where we get to experience some of our favorite things that would never happen at home. We've gone to the San Diego Temple, Sea World, Magic Mountain and the beach on those trips. I can think of fun memories for all those locations!!!
Here is a once-in-a-lifetime family trip with the Albrecht's!!!! A few years ago, we decided instead of buying Christmas presents for each other, we would save up and go to Disneyland together!!!! It was such a memorable time, one that we will never forget!!!
And this time with the Clyde's, we talked my mom and dad into going with us. It was their first time to D'land in over 27 years!!!! I can't tell you how fun it was to have my parents and Randy's parents on a family vacation together!!! My kids got BOTH sets of grandparents for a full week trip!!!! How lucky are we?
Then, this summer, my family went to SLC for a temple open house, this is my older kids with my parents on the train at Hogle Zoo!!! We had a blast!!!!
There are times in life when we make memories, some for our kids and some for us. I will cherish the times I have had in those moments because I know they will never happen again. So, that is why today, I am grateful for family vacations!!!
