Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love to travel with my boys. Over the last four years, we have visited 48 out of 50 states, and next month we will fly away on our first international trip! As much as I love to travel with them, I am not silly enough to believe it will last forever. I already see a huge difference in the boys they were four years ago versus now, and looking back at all our memories, there is nothing I wish for more than to be able to stop and freeze time.
I have been incredibly blessed to have been able to travel more than 365 days with my boys over the course of the last four years, and to have shared the laughter and yes, sometimes tears that we have in destinations all across this country. It is by far my favorite way to spend time with the boys, and I find myself wishing it could all just slow down a bit. My oldest turned 16 this year, and I found myself wondering “Where has the time gone.” I though it would be fun to share some of our favorite photos from our travels over the last few years.
The first time the boys ever say snow!
Not so sure if they like tube sledding.
Taking in the incredibly beauty of Yellowstone National Park.
Running free into the Snake River in Idaho.
Mining for diamonds in Arkansas.
Playing with a jazz band in New Orleans.
Making wishes in the Bandlands.
Taking a giant leap of faith. Yes, mom did it too.
Witnessing the sheer power of Niagara Falls.
Visiting the Nation’s capital.
Being curious in Texas.
Hiking the Grand Canyon.
Endless fun in theme parks.
Sledding on sand.
Experiencing a true sense of freedom.
Forever frozen in the sunset as my little boys.
Hug your kids a little closer tonight moms and dads. Cherish each and every one of those “firsts,” because they all seem to pass way to fast. Better yet, look for ways to freeze those moments today. To slow down time and enjoy every opportunity to spend quality time with your kids. Like today, the boys and I have a huge love for Pokemon Go. I know, I know, but we really do love it. So, we headed to the park with some Klondike bars for treats, and used some of the last moments of this summer to laugh, giggle and tried to catch them all!
