  1. oh my goones, those are some cute photos! (Little Josh looks soo much like Micah, and David looks soo much like Big Josh…) Fun! you 8 people in one car!!!!?? wow!

  2. What a beautiful post!! I felt like I was taking that journey with you! Yes, I remember some of our family trips: some were good, some were bad, but mostly, they were unforgettable! We once had 16 people pile up into a van for a road trip down to Florida…Insanity!! But nonetheless, an adventure!

      Sixteen people in one van, on the road to Florida? I bet you could tell a story or two! 🙂

    Love this–it totally took me back to my own family vacations every summer, crammed into the backseat (in shorts, sitting on hot vinyl) of an old station wagon (with no functioning air conditioner) between my two sisters. All of these pictures could have been our pictures, right down to the outfits. And I have to add that it is strangely comforting to me that every person I know that grew up in the 70s& 80s has that same picture of themselves lined up with their cousins, sitting on a step, eating ice cream cones. What a nice trip down memory lane. 🙂

      We had a Chevy Malibu wagon growing up … so I can totally relate to the skin sticking to hot vinyl. And the outfits … did you notice the knee socks and sandals?! Good times…

  4. What a fun adventure! You are so adorable! I mostly remember moving as an adventure {military family}. But oh gosh, this makes me want to dig through old family photos! 🙂

      Yes, I think you must–it’s some good times … then share them, so we can join the fun! 🙂

  5. We took a family trip (including Grandma, the perennial back seat driver) to New England from Indianapolis one summer that all three kids refer to now as simply The Vacation From Hell. I am glad that yours has happy memories! – Mindi

      HA! I can only imagine! I have my own Vacation from Hell … but it was as an adult. Oh my word! I get a nervous tick and started mumbling to myself just thinking about it…
