Family road trips are the BEST!

Your kids are only young once don’t squander your time with them.

When we first started our business, we weren’t making the progress as quickly as we wanted. We couldn’t figure out why either. We kept moving forward but it was at the speed of a snail. It didn’t feel like we were making any headway.

In the middle of this, we took an extended family vacation where we loaded up our 4 kids in the car and drove from Colorado to Red Lake Canada. If you’ve never been to Red Lake, I’ll give you a quick rundown on it. You go straight north from where Minnesota and Canada meet about 7 hours. It was an awesome drive. We spent 24 hours in the car and saw countless awe-inspiring things along the route.

It was on the drive where we really had time to reconnect with each other and talk. That’s one the reasons we love driving so much. All of the time to reconnect as a family is amazing. During those times we talked about the business and where we wanted it to go what we really wanted to be able to accomplish with it. Without ever writing a word, we made our business plan and set up goals.

We spent a week in Canada and enjoyed every second of the time. We rented a small fishing boat for a day and caught tons of fish. Our youngest son caught his first Pike! Our oldest caught a small mouth bass. Which we didn’t see as a huge accomplishment but after talking to the locals, they said that anyone who catches a bass in those lakes is truly blessed. We took a biplane tour of the lake, taking off and landing on the lake several times. In the air, we saw a couple of bears and even were blessed with the privilege of seeing two Bull Moose. What is the plural of moose, meese? Who knows.
