Every year my family and I go to Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. It’s not the fanciest place in the world, or the most exotic place but it’s our place. We go this vacation every year because otherwise we will not see each other that year because all of us live in different places. To me, family is the most important thing so being able to see them at least once every year, means everything. Knowing that this may be the only time I get to see my family in that year, because traveling is so hard and expensive, makes this place that we all meet so special.
When we go to the lake, we go for awhile, about a week. Everybody tries to arrive on the same day. Once we arrive at the lake everybody settles in. We all make ourselves at home. While we are there, it is so drama free and relaxing. Every day we go out on the lake, we take a speed boat and pontoon. The speed boat allows people to go tubing and do other water sports. The pontoon allows people to just relax. Family members rent jet skies, so that we can ride those during the day too. People pretty much do just whatever they want.
This is my chosen trip because it was with my entire family. I think family is the most important thing in the world. You need family. Family is for everything. I believe that America today is lacking family reunion vacations much like the one I go on every year. Whether you are a traditional or non-traditional family, time together is what you need.
