"There's no place like home," and by that I mean your home state. Have you ever vacationed in your home state? It's a pretty awesome feeling because you get to experience everything at leisure rather than the usual business of responsibilities and work.
The last week in August, we took a family trip to the Connecticut shoreline and although I have done day trips and camping in the area as a kid, it was an awesome trip to see how beautiful CT really is. As a mom, the plus was that I could pack all Gavin's toys (unlike our last trip to Florida) and Gavin felt a little more at home with all his own toys and items.
I am thinking since this trip was so low stress and an absolute blast, we can make it a family tradition on the summer. Do you have any family trips that have turned into a family tradition?
