FAMILY TRAVEL BUCKET LIST 2016
Last year we didn't have one single vacation. We were saving for our big move to Cali, however, the timing was not in our favor. My husband landed a new job and we decided to make Indiana our home. We used our money that we saved to buy our new house in 2015. In January, we decided that we will have one vacation every quarter.
Q1 - FAMILY VACATION - MARCH - FLORIDA/LOUISIANA/TEXAS
This was one of those family trips that would have been horrible if we had traveled by airplane. We decided to vacay in Florida for two days then visit New Orleans for the last two days, however, mother nature was like nah! Florida and New Orleans were having downpours daily and the vacation started off not pretty. We decided to leave Florida, travel through New Orleans for sightseeing (while there we visited my husband's old college campus in Lake Charles) & then made Houston, TX our vacation spot. Houston was nice and sunny! We had a great time hiding easter eggs in our hotel suite for the kids to find, adventures in Houston visiting local restaurants and museums.
Q2 - MR + MRS VACATION - JUNE - NEVADA
It's sad but real that my husband and I haven't had a honeymoon yet. When we married, I had just started my new job and didn't want to take the time off and we didn't have the money saved for a travel away honeymoon. With that said, we were so ready for this no kids allowed vacation in Las Vegas, NV! Airport travel delays and issues the trip was off to a bumpy start but FIVE days in Vegas will make up for that. We had a great time soaking up the sun, sightseeing (vegas has changed a lot since the last time we were there), visiting Old Vegas (they have a container park that is amazing!), eating good and my favorite the MJ Live show - it was so good! I shared many photos on Instagram.
Q3 - FAMILY REUNION VACATION - AUGUST - TENNESSEE
I guess we are really doing our trip every quarter! Up next, we plan to visit Tennessee for a weekend family reunion! Stay tune - I plan to vlog about our trip!
Q4 - WEEKEND FAMILY GETAWAY - AUGUST - OHIO
I would have preferred a trip during the last three months of the year but we couldn't work it out in our favor, budget and schedule. We have a family trip planned in Cincinnati, OH that we are excited about visiting old friends and new adventures in the city. Stay tune - I plan to vlog about this trip too!
What trips have your family taken this year? Do you have a family travel bucket list for this year? If, not make one now for next year and start saving up. I would love to hear what you have planned.
