Travel with family is a wonderful exciting adventure for sure. We have loved having this ti
me together, every moment has been fantastic.

Kids love vacations with extended family. They follow the older co

We have also found out that they also need the security of familiar routines
. They’re stressed by unfamiliar even

This will be a time that most of my family will never forget. Both the young and the old have had great times together.

You're never too old to have a summer vacation you'll always remember.

Have a Fantastic Friday everyone

Sounds like a great vacation. I love to see the horses and carriages even when I don't take a ride in them.
They remind me of slower times. I never traveled by horse and wagon but my parents did. I was 15 when the last horse and wagon left Belmont, our home town.

So enjoy and yes of course we make memories until we cross the great divide.
Love from over in Georgia.
