Ultimate Family Vacation

Cheerios is giving you the chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, your ultimate family vacation. As part of a paid promotion for their “Do What You Love” Sweepstakes, Cheerios is sponsoring my post today about what my ultimate family vacation would be. Read mine, Enter the Sweepstakes for a chance to actually win your own fantasy family trip or one of a bunch of other great prizes.

If I could have my ultimate family vacation, it would be a trip to Europe with my husband and four kids.  My husband and I had the chance to backpack Europe when we were first married.  It was a magical trip.  We were young and adventurous.  We spend about two months going from country to country, staying in hostels and seeing the things we had only read about in the history books. 

I remember meeting a young family on that trip – a mom and dad backpacking with two of their children, who looked to be about 8 and 10.  We talked with them for some time, asking about how they were managing the trip with children.  They were very enthusiastic about the experience, and seemed to be having a great time.

When my kids are a bit older, I would love to take that trip with them.  It is such a special memory for me.  I would love to expose them not only to the historical sights, but to engage them in the sense of adventure and living in the moment that backpacking can provide.  I think it would be hard, but I think it would be something they would value for the rest of their lives.

How about you?  What would be your ultimate family vacation?
Don't forget to enter the “Do What You Love” Sweepstakes, for a chance to win your own ultimate family vacation. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.
