We’re getting set to embark on our first vacation as a family of four. I’m looking forward to it as much as I’m dreading the fact that I’m gonna need like a week vacation from the vacation to recover. When I was a kid, going on vacation was the best thing ever. I mean, we got to pack in the car, drive to some far away land, and run wild for a week or two. Play on the beach, hike in the mountains, swim in the ocean or a lake. It was paradise.
Now? It takes a week to just prepare to go on vacation for a week. Budgeting our money, planning meals, planning outings, and making sure we have enough room to in the car for the over-packing we’re sure to do. Oh, and of course there’s the packing for ourselves and the kids.
So, with that beings said, I present to you: Ways vacation differs as a kid vs. with kids.How I feel at the end of a day on vacation

Now those aren’t the only examples. There are tons more ways that vacation can be different when you have kids and when you were a kid. These were just some of my immediate favorites. How about you–what differences do you see in your vacations now with your kids compared to when you went on vacation as a kid? Feel free to share some .gifs to illustrate!

Wow – excellent videos of excellent times!
Wonder what videos you’ll betaking on your holiday! Hope you all have a great time!
Oh there are differences but both seem to be just as stressful and fun. My kids seem to do some of the crazy things that I enjoyed getting into.
They’re definitely both stressful and fun. Hopefully more fun-filled than stress-filled. Seeing our kids do the crazy stuff we did is fun, I have to admit.
