Places We’ve Been

As we’re getting off the ground, I’m working fast and furiously to add content about the places we’ve been.  We’ve got a solid 10 years of family travel under our belt, and we’ve been to a lot of places throughout the United States, thanks to some epic road trips.  Here’s a taste of the places we’ve been and will be detailing in upcoming posts:

2016 Epic Road Trip

Ready to Go!

This is the absolute most fun road trip we’ve ever taken. It was a long 10 days, but we saw everything  from bears in Shenandoah National Park to Broadway shows in New York City , to a private tour of The Great Library in Toronto, to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland

2014 Epic Road Trip

Heading to Dauphin Island

This trip wasn’t quite as much fun as 2016.  Becca had stitches in her foot, so we had to cut out all of the beach and water activities that we had planned for the Keys, and we added time at Disney–which is great for a wheelchair bound kid. It was still a fun trip–just not quite what we planned.

  • Disney
  • Key West
  • Universal Studios
  • Savannah

Cruising

I’m the King of he World?

Kenny and I have been on two cruises.  Cruising is one of those things that people either love or hate. We love it! We had the same itinerary on both trips (the second one was only booked spur-of-the moment because we got a great deal on a last minute cruise, and it seemed like a darn good way to ease the pain of my 40th birthday). On our cruises we visited:

  • Belize
  • Cozumel
  • Roatan

Other International Trips

Paris
Paris from Notre Dame

This was our first trip abroad and was supposed to be an awesome family trip.  Unfortunately, health issues turned it into a girls trip when Christine and Kenny had to stay behind.  The City of Lights absolutely lived up to expectations, though.

Other U.S. Cities

New Orleans

We’ve also visited several other cities on vacations, school trips, and work trips. We love getting to know new cities! New Orleans is one of our absolute favorites, and we seem to be making an annual pilgrimage to NYC now that the girls are older.

Other Texas Cities

Since we’re based in Dallas, we’ve taken plenty of road trips across Texas. There’s not a whole lot left that we haven’t seen!

  • Dallas (Of course!  We live here!)

  • Amarillo
  • Houston
  • Austin
  • San Antonio
  • La Grange/Brenham
  • Lubbock

If you have any questions about any of these places, please feel free to leave a comment.  And if you would like me to add a place to the top of my to-post list, just let me know!

I am a 40-something lawyer and mom of 3 teenage girls. I love exploring new places, and when I can't be on the road, I'm planning my next trip. Over the years, I've learned a lot about how to travel in a pack of five. Our trips range from budget-friendly road trips with the family, to more luxurious trips for work, either solo or with my husband, Kenny.
