My men and I have been blessed to go on some fabulous vacations. However, of all the trips we have ever taken as a family, an RV road trip has been the most fun and memorable out of all of them.
You may remember we did an RV trip two years ago with Access RV Rentals here in Salt Lake City, UT. Before that trip I was not looking forward to it. The high-maintenance side of me had a pre-judgement that RV-ing was the complete opposite of luxury. I couldn’t fathom sitting on an bumpy RV for a week listening to my kids bicker with each other and complain “are we there yet”? To my surprise, they (and I) loved it.
When the opportunity arose to do another Access RV Trip there was no question the answer was “ABSOLUTELY”. We picked up the RV in Indiana and started our way back to Salt Lake City, UT in a week’s time.
What is great about RV’ing is you can cover a lot of sites in a short amount of time. Plus, kids have much more space to stretch out unlike sitting in a car for a week.
I cannot describe how valuable a week on an RV is for a family.
It’s fun to brag about all the places we went on our trip but Henry David Thoreau said, “It’s not what you look at that matters, It’s what you see.”
Seeing pictures in a text book is one thing. Seeing those places first hand is priceless.
Have you ever had your children attend a different religious services other than their own? That one experience alone made a huge impression these three.
These men also learned about the great leaders of our country and what they contributed to society.
The beauty of being on an RV is that all the distractions at home are eliminated and you’re forced to spend time together…like it or not.
Let’s just say, we never knew 10 rounds of UNO could be so comical.
You never realize how big the world is until you leave home.
Having been on 2 RV trips now I can say it’s definitely you should put on your bucket list. These boys still talk about our RV trip from 2 years ago and I know they’ll talk about this last trip for years to come.
Here’s our home-away-from-home… Mannequin Challenge style…
