Ah, 2016. A brand new year. A fresh start.
I am always looking for new adventures for my family. I want my kids to be able to have amazing experiences. When my boys are all grown up, I want them to look back and have tons of great memories from their childhood.
One of the reasons I try to travel with my kids as much as possible is that I rarely went anywhere when I was a kid. My mom wouldn’t fly, so we always stayed local. I didn’t fly anywhere until I was an adult, but I am happy to be able to say that my kids have flown over a dozen times (at least) and each of them have been flying since they were under a year old.
Our family traveled to a couple of new places last year (Philadelphia and Washington DC, which was new for the kids) and while we don’t have anyplace new slated to visit this year, yet, we are planning on taking a few return trips to a couple of our favorite destinations in 2016!
First up is San Diego. This will be our third visit and although, Disneyland is not in San Diego, it’s only a 90 minute drive and we will most definitely be getting our Disney fix while we’re out on the west coast.
We are also planning on taking a road trip back to DC this summer. Last year we spent a week there and only got a chance to see a fraction of the sights – so we’re going back. We actually stay with family in Bethesda, MD whenever we are down there, so we might explore a little more of Maryland while we’re there (I’m thinking Baltimore).
I’m sure there will be a lot more travel this year, but those are the things that are a definite as of right now. I am looking forward to making lots of new memories with my family in 2016. And speaking of family, there’s no other family that can relate more to this than the Croods – you know, the prehistoric crew whose every day is a new adventure (or disaster) – because while our stories may differ from the dark ages, the family hijinks remain the same.
The Croods’ Best Family Adventures!
Every step out of the cave is a new adventure for The Croods, but we’ve compiled a few of our favorites. You can watch all of their pre-hysterical adventures now on Netflix.
We’re definitely going to be having a Croods marathon in our house soon!
What adventures are you looking forward to in 2016?
