Family Trips Bring Joy & Unity

I’m back!

Anyone miss me last week?

We took the kids out of school a week early {spring break} for a very special family reunion.  Most of my extended family lives in Texas.  Texas had their spring break last week.  My Dad initiated a family ski trip in Pagosa Springs, Colorado.  This trip/reunion was the first of it’s kind for our family since my Dad’s parents, my Grandparents, passed away.  The last time we did something like this was back when my cousin was married about 10 years ago.  It was also in Colorado, but in Boulder where they lived.

Stay tuned this week as I will share some of the things we did to create a memorable family reunion.  This includes menu items, family song, other activities besides skiing, memory book ideas, rental options and a wonderful phone app.  If you ever plan to attend or help coordinate a family reunion in the future, you will not want to miss these upcoming posts. ;)

  2. Welcome back! Looks like a great time was had by all. Multiple family vacations are the best. We’re having one in May so I look forward to your future posts. Great job on the photo collages, btw.
