Family Road Trip Vacation

A few years ago we took off on the road and traveled 7000 miles visiting numerous states, family, events, and also everything that caught our attention. The most special events were the ones that just happened and were not planned.

We had so much fun in the past, that we decided after 3 years of spending our summers in Guatemala, we would head to the road once again.
We will be spending a full month on the road again this summer, visiting all the southern states, 1 week at Catholic Family Land in Ohio, and then back to California via the Mid-Western states.
A month with my wife and kids, an experience and memories that lasts a lifetime.

I can hardly wait, Liz can hardly wait, and believe it or not, the kids as soooo excited as well.
God has blessed us beyond my expectations......
We have already experienced so much as a family:
The endless stories from Guatemala and the small villages,
Mount Rushmore,
Niagara Falls and Canada,
The Black Hills,
Yosemite,
Roosevelt Nation Park
Yellowstone
Washington DC
Gettysburg
Mexico,
Little Big Horn
Small Town (North Dakota) Parades
Butte Montana - Mary of the Rockies
Utah Salt Flats
The Great Salt Lake
Amusement Park after Amusement Park,
especially in Sandusky Ohio- with the world largest and fastest roller coasters.
And all the special and unexpected relationships and friends that we met and develop each and every day while on what I call "Our Cross Country Mission Adventure."
The list goes On and On....
And the adventures will just keep going, sharing it all with the people I love the most.
I will never take for granted what the Lord allows our simple and humble family to experience.....
