Family Vacations Create Special Memories – Our Trip To Washington

Amy and I met in Washington DC about 15 years ago and had the pleasure of taking our kids back to our old stomping ground for their first visit to the nations capital. Like most people, we had a hard time leaving our business as the spring market seems to be picking up, but the quality time spent with our family during this trip was priceless.

Although the weather wasn’t great, we still got to see the monuments, the zoo, a ton of museums, and the end of the cherry blossom festival. This was our first real family trip and our kids really enjoyed it. The one thing that has changed is the comfort in which kids today get to travel. Back in the day, I remember getting thrown in the back of the station wagon with my sisters and having nothing to do but listen to my father’s music and stare out the window. Now, my kids get to travel in a very spacious mini-van, play video games and watch movies on their DVD players, yet still manage to complain.

We walked the kids by our first home and our old neighborhood. It brought back great memories of when Amy and I were a newly engaged couple just starting out and although it was nostalgic for us, the kids could care less. Here are some photos that we took:

We had a great time in DC and highly recommend it as a place to take your family. Hopefully, our trip to Washington will have created great memories that our children will always remember.
