AWAY IS HOME
In episode 3 of our family travel adventure, our six-year-old explains how to choose an appropriate family destination. Topping her list: warm weather (after all, it’s January) playgrounds, and shopping — lots of shopping!
Last week, our middle son tried to hit the road by himself. He didn’t make it very far. In episode two of our Away is Home family travel blog series, his big brother explains that it takes more to plan a trip. And he takes him everywhere while trying to explain it.

What will happen next? I’ll give you a clue: Our son Iden didn’t get very far.
Oh, and there were no cats in the bag in the final scene.
Here’s wishing you a very happy and adventure-filled 2013. We shot a little video of the Elliott family and our New Year’s travel wishes, and since our sites are undergoing some routine maintenance over the weekend, we wanted to share it with you now.
Greetings from Chattanooga, Tenn., our first stopover on our month-long road trip out to Oregon.

And today after we checked in at the Holiday Inn Express, Iden shared his road trip “rules.” We’re still laughing!
I hope you have as much fun watching these videos as we did making them.
Remember, you can always follow our family travel adventure at Away is Home.
It’s been another year — another awesome year — and we can’t believe it’s already over.
Here’s what happened to us in 2011:
