Multi-Generation Travel – Making Family Memories

My husband and I met overseas in Macedonia doing humanitarian work. We have always loved to travel, and fortunately, we had kids who love exploring, too. But, if your family is anything like my family, multi-generational trips are few and far between. Busy schedules prevent us ALL from getting away together very often. To be honest, our family trips usually means traveling to each other’s house and maybe exploring one day, but most of the time we stay at home and “visit.”

My husband and I, my husband’s parents and our two kids, ages 2 and under, decided to jump in a car and take a road trip up north to Utah for a week long vacation. We rented a house, cooked at home, drove through Zion National Park, hiked Bryce Canyon and saw everything in between.

We shared many laughs and adventures on this vacation. We teased the overprotective grandparents as we hiked and look at the majestic of the canyon on the edge. Watching my daughter make “snow angels” in the dirt with her grandpa and my son babbling with his grandma with the gorgeous backdrop of Utah, these are memories I will cherish for the rest of my life.

I highly recommend you calling your parents and planning your next vacation together. This one means so much to us, especially since we are planning to move overseas shortly and will not easily have the opportunity to do it again. There’s no right or wrong when it comes to choosing a destination, only what works for your family. My in-laws love to camp, so touring national parks was a perfect fit.

Where would you like to travel with ALL your family? What would you like to do and to see?
