  1. Time Together: Our fast-paced, busy lives make it hard enough to get everyone around the dinner table at night — forget a full week of uninterrupted family time. Sometimes taking off to a new place and leaving your own lives behind is the only way to really get a big chunk of family time.
  2. Making Memories: Sure, you can make memories without ever leaving your house, but the memories you can make while on vacation will have a special place in your heart — and your photo album.
  3. Ditching Technology: It’s a lot easier to convince your kiddos to put down the tablets when you have a new place to explore. Fill your day with plans for big adventures, and they’ll never touch their phones — except to take pictures.
  4. Reconnecting: Once you’ve all put away your phones, you’ll finally get that face-to-face time you’ve been missing. You might even get a chance to show your kids just how cool you really are.
  5. Trying New Things: From foods to challenges and activities, there’s no shortage of new things to try when you’re traveling. And the best part is, you’re there to see it all happen. For once, you’re guaranteed a chance to see their reaction and soak it all in first-hand.
  6. They Want To Hang Out With You: Dinner and shopping with Mom isn’t something you have to force on your kids. While you’re on a trip, there’s a good chance they’re going to want your company. What mom can ever get enough of that?
  7. They Want To Hang Out With One Another: Your kids haven’t all gotten along for more than five minutes in half a decade. That’s why it’s so amazing that, sans their school possess, they’re suddenly back to being BFFs. If you don’t do it for yourself, then take a trip to give your kids a chance to remember that their siblings are actually pretty OK.
