I dreamed of this exact same scenario when we first got married in 1994: to make our own family tradition and we did just that. This is our 2nd decennial family celebration and the whole thing went without a hitch. Well, ok - except with the constant arguing with the kids that I never imagined. But all in all...it was mission accomplished!
We decided that every 10 years on our anniversary year that we would take the exact same trip visiting same spots from our honeymoon with our growing family and we recently came back from our 20th anniversary trip. We started in Los Angeles, Hawaii, and then San Francisco before we head back home to Chicago for an almost month-long trip. We were exhausted but content. This trip is even much more meaningful because the kids are in on making sure we hit certain marks. And you know, we're really just beginning because 2024, 2034, 2044 are still coming adding on grandkids in those future pictures, too. I'm giggling as I think of it all.
