Peaceful and relaxed vacation where everything seems to go perfectly aren’t always the ones that are the most memorable. We all sure discovered that as we stepped off our flight in British Colombia, Canada for an unforgettable family Christmas. The airport is the last place you want to spend your...Tags:

Traveling is something that my family has had the luxury of doing my whole life. I have been to twenty-three states and three different countries. My family and I have done everything from snow skiing on the majestic mountains of Colorado to touring the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington D.C. The...Tags:
