Family Fifty

Our road trip over the summer has inspired us to try for the Family Fifty!  We are going to try and visit all 50 states before Hailey graduates high school.  As a family we have visited 9 states thus far, we are going after our 10th state this weekend.  We have 7 years to conquer the remaining 40.  That means we will need to average 5 or 6 a year.  The kids are really excited about it.  We only hope their enthusiasm persists through the teen years.  We are looking forward to seeing all of beautiful American and learning a little about each of her states.  It will be a big challenge but a wonderful adventure that hopefully will leave the kids with memories to last a lifetime.
