Planning your next travel trip
Okay, now that you've all filled out your questionnaires, are there any items that you ALL checked that you like to do?
If so, make a list of these common interests.
Then, sit together as a family and talk about which ones you all think are the most exciting and rate them starting with #1.
Then, get a calendar and start marking off days that are "HIT THE ROAD" days so you can get excited.
ROAD TRIP #1: Drive in country (day, time, place)
What if your family all checked off different things you like to do? Everybody sit down with a piece of paper and rank the things you checked that you like to do in order of importance. For example:
#2 - watch animals
#3 - splashing in waterfalls
Then, take your lists and combine them, writing down the top 3 favorite things each member of your family likes to do. For example:
#2 - Playing sports
#3 - Lying in a hammock
#2 - Eat
#3 - Sunbathe
#2 - Painting and Doing Arts & Crafts
#3 - Science Experiments
Baby Brother's List:
#2 - Play games
#3 - Fly kites
If you combine your favorite things, you need to find a place that has a way to watch sports, a place to shop, a place to watch animals, and a place to watch movies.
Maybe you could visit an aquarium or zoo with a gift shop in the morning - that would take care of Mom's #1 thing and your #1 thing. And then, for lunch you could go to a sports bar where Dad can watch some sports for his #1 choice. And, then you can all go to a matinee movie and take care of baby brother's #1 thing to do!
See how creative you can get in planning your family's ROAD TRIP!
