Summer is here and that means it’s time for some fun family weekend getaways! We’re heading north in a few weeks and I can’t wait to use our new Washington DC photo scavenger hunt printable with the boys to get some great photos together.
Growing up, my family always made a big deal out of vacations whether we traveled near or far, on a long trip or one of many family weekend getaways. I remember getting as excited to spend a couple days at a friends house on the beach as I did taking road trips to places far off. There’s just something about hitting the open road (or sky) and seeing where it takes you.
Now that I’m a mom, I hope that I can instill the same love of exploration in my kids. My husband and I both love trying new things and our list of destinations keeps getting longer with each place we visit!
The boys both get out of school at the end of May, which is earlier than most of the other schools around here. We thought it would be a great chance to take a few days in Washington DC for some sightseeing and good food. I’ve been to Washington DC twice in my life, but both of those visits were long before the days digital photo sharing. I had to dig around to find this pic and I’m hoping to find some from a childhood trip to share soon.

I’m the only one in our family who has ever been to our nation’s capital so I am really excited to experience as much as we can together. One way I plan to get the kids excited is to let them loose with one of our old phones so they can snap their own pictures. I think it will be a fun way for them to remember this family vacation and I can’t wait to see the trip through their eyes.
