Goodness. There are some incredibly hard things that come with raising teenagers and then there are some gorgeous moments that stun me and bring me so much joy.
Over Thanksgiving, we decided to take our family to the mountains. If we couldn’t see our family, we wanted to make memories in a new space.
It was perfect. We cooked all of our meals in our AirBNB, had a hot tub overlooking the mountains, and played hours and hours and hours of board games together. Bliss.
My 17 year old daughter made a VLOG about the trip and I squealed, cried, and laughed out loud while watching it.
Seeing the joy of that investment through the eyes of my children just makes me want to create more special experiences for them ASAP. (perhaps that was part of the strategy?)
Anyway, if you are curious what its like to travel with 5 teenagers + 2 of their significant others – well, check us out. I think its SPECTACULAR.
