  • Interesting family vacations are no stranger to my family and I.  We have traveled all around the United States, Maine to Florida to Wyoming, and accumulated many great stories and memories along the way.  Like when we spent hours in the gift shop to avoid the 90 degree heat when we camped in the...

  • In the spring of 2009, on a beautiful Sunday in May and after church, my mom, dad and I put on our hunting clothes that would protect us as we wandered through the woods.

  •             Every year, my family and I take our annual, adventurous trip to Ocean City, Maryland. We stay at the Plim Plaza hotel, which is not a five-star hotel but its descent enough. Some amenities are an Olympic sized pool, three Jacuzzis, a bar with live music, and free parking. In my opinion...
