The Helser Family West Coast / Hawaii Excursion

So one of the beautiful parts of being in full-time ministry, doing home school, and being married to Jonathan is all the lovely traveling. Our kids are now getting old enough to travel and remember all the amazing sites, appreciate the good food and make it through long plane rides. We had the privilege of going to Washington, Oregon, and Hawaii this November. It was a 20 day trip...Super Fun, Super Long, Super Amazing.

Traveling with kids Tip #1
[invite them into loving the things you love]

Our kids love, love, love big cities, little cafes, amazing coffee shops (for hot chocolate...of course), good food, breathtaking views, nice hotels, quiet moments to savor the privilege of traveling, movies on airplanes, quality time in the midst of a crazy schedule, meeting new people and the list goes on.
