Big Adventure 2006 – Searchin’ for Snow

images8.jpegBecause we live in sunny Florida, hanging out in snow for a few days with the family is a big deal for us. It’s so expensive to fly 6 of us anywhere, so our destination is always within driving distance, somehow packed to the roof in our Yukon as we head north for our big adventure. Mom is in charge of all the important stuff like wardrobes, packing, and reservations. I have but only 2 responsibilities:

1. Drive us there safely
2. Lead the family into a Big Adventure.

I started this crazy idea on our very first family vacation – we will do something crazy-fun as a family on every vacation.

A few of our favorites:

– Midnight snow mobile runs through the Green Mountains of Vermont

– Swimming with dolphins

– Off Road Pink Jeep Tours

So Sunday we head north to Snowshoe West Virginia where The Weather Channel shows it a balmy high of 60 degrees. Mom is currently repacking our snow boots for flip flops, oh well. The real purpose of my Big Adventures is to (re)connect with my family to make lasting memories. Our time together is so short.

My girls are already asking what the Big Adventure will be this year – guess it depends on the weather. I’ll keep you posted.

Purpose to make some lasting memories with those that you love. Life is so short…

Now if I can just figure out how to coordinate potty breaks for 5 women over a 15 hour car ride…
