YES, YOU SHOULD TAKE THEM WITH YOU
[Yes, they will eat the food.  Yes, they can sleep anywhere.]
Family can mean lots of things.  To me, it is anyone near and dear to your heart.  

What better way to celebrate the important relationships in your life than on a trip!  It could be somewhere brand new, or a treasured tradition that feels like coming home.
So many times, people will tell me that ā€œIā€™m going to do X when the kids get older.ā€  What are you waiting for? 

Traveling as a family creates lasting memories for each individual, but also for the family as a group.  It will change them; it will change you.  And always for the better.
