How to Take a Family Vacation in 15 “Easy” Steps


How to take a family vacation in 15 “easy” steps. Decide on a vacation spot everyone will love. Which is basically impossible. Until Mom figures it out. Pack everything for everyone. “Thanks for your help, guys.” Leave the house. “Time to go.” Leave the house… “It’s time to go!” Leave the house. “I’m trying! Come on guys! We’re going to miss our flight!” “Why didn’t you just say that, Mom?” Finally leave the house… 40 minutes late. Have your kid declare he’s bored Five minutes into a four-hour flight. Finally make it to the hotel. Watch the kids fight over who gets to plug in his or her device. Until you remind them that you didn’t fly all this way so that they can stare at screens. Head to the park. Get in line for your favorite ride. Make sure your kid waits until you reach the front of the line before declaring he has to pee. Have the time of your lives… until the hangries hit. Eat. Apologize to the other guests for your kids’… amazing manners. Vow to record each and every moment so you can show the kids what a great time they had when they complain that your family never does anything fun. Eat way too much sugar, stay at the park way too late, and then suffer the consequences. “Nooo! I don’t want to leave!” Wake up and do it all over again. After all… you’re going for Mom of the Year. Return home. Drag your kids kicking and screaming away from the hotel. Vow never to take the kids on another vacation ever again. You know you’re totally going to break that vow next year. Create memories that last a lifetime and a mountain of laundry.

  1. Love it! We just took a family cross country road trip and I have to say, we indeed followed a good couple of these steps, lol!

  2. 👏👏👏👏👏🎢🎢🎢🎡🎡⛱🏝🏖Best one yet after all they say it won't be fun then they NEVER want to LEAVE!🏖🏝⛱🎡🎡🎢🎢🎢👏👏👏👏👏

  3. ugh totally understand, we went camping for fourth of july and ufff getting everything packed and ready and getting there and setting up a pain but having fun in the river is the best to see kids enjoy their time. ugh next night our widows in the tent were open and our tent got rained on, our computer and my husbands cell got drenched and it wont work yea totally reason we should leave tablets and computers at home.. on our last morning when putting our new tent down it broke lol so we still managed to shove it inside the van and drive home and call it a great family camp out. lol

  4. @ 0:50 You two look so cute together. Just think. In a blink of an eye, 30 years will go by. You will have to record that walk as well and play them side by side.

  5. Hahahahaha!! ROTFL!!! I've been lucky – we've taken our Disneymoon Souvenir back to Disney World 6 times!!! 7th time will be next month!! Other than Hangry effects when we visit a theme park away from our hotel (yes, we go back to crap & nap), our trips have been, shall we say, less stressful than yours 🙂 – my head would explode otherwise!!!! And that would be messy. Yuck. Here's to family them park vacations!!!! BTW – Great job, as always!!! – OFD (Old Fart Dad)

  6. Our cab usually picks us up all yelling and screaming and LATE :). I get to repeat these 15 easy steps soon again :)!!!! Ooh, forgot to mention we lost Grandpa a few times last trip, cut trip short to come home early cu nobody was having fun, and husband just apparently learned what "hangry" means because of how many times the kids were hangry.

  7. Ahhh are you kidding if my child said they had to go to the bathroom when it's our turn to go on the ride I would ask 'can you wait until the ride is over' and if they say no I will say well I don't want you to have a temper tantrum when it's time to go home so no and just try to wait

  8. My mum asks me every night if you have any other “18 easy steps” she is a mother of three girls and she can relate to this so much x ps I loveeee you vids x
