Memorial Day weekend is the official kickoff to summer and a time to remember those who fought for our freedom. It's almost over. As we eagerly anticipated it's arrival by planning the camping trip or opening of the cabin to the packing list and obsessing over the weekend forecast (Can it be true?? 80s all weekend without rain?!?!) It's almost over. This got me thinking....time is fleeting. What are you doing with your time? Are you spending it with family and friends or has the internet or XBox 1become your BFF? If you have children, you may have realized you only have 18 summers with them before they are gone. If you've lost a loved one you know all too well the time you had was precious, however, cut short nonetheless.
As we fill our summer calendars with soccer practice, baseball games, summer camps and whatever else we can find to busy ourselves and children with, I propose a challenge: Instead of forking over hundreds of dollars, if not thousands, for all these things to keep the kids busy this summer, why not plan a family vacation? You could even make it a family affair by getting everyone in on the fun! Decide as a family the budget, where to go and start planning! It doesn't have to be extravagant but it does need to happen. We are only here a short time but what we do while we are here is all that matters. Start making memories with the ones you love NOW! If you need some inspiration, give us a call or check out our website for some fun or unexpected destinations. Is this the year you finally take the kids to see Mount Rushmore or maybe swim with dolphins in the Caribbean? That is the question and therefore the challenge. Are you up for it?
