Every family has probably had a family vacation once or twice, but they are nothing like the Whelans’ adventures. My family makes sure that we have family vacations chocked full of memories that we can talk about later in life.
Some of my best family vacation memories and traditions include:
- Hilarious family photos
What person doesn’t like food? Well, in the Whelan household, there is a rule that no one can break and that is that no matter where we go for vacation, we are not allowed to eat at a place that is also in St. Louis. Therefore we get to try little holes in the wall, the locals' favorites, or unique places that have claimed to have the “World’s Best _____.” Through us doing this, I have found my favorite restaurant in Kansas City, which sits on the KS/MO state line. Winstead’s Diner is one of the best diners I have been to with fully restored 1950s decor and jukebox. I can jam out while eating my chicken sandwich and ultimate brownie sundae. Calories don’t count on vacation.
I encourage you all to go make some memories with your family. It doesn’t have to be some fancy resort in the middle of the Maldives! Just enjoy each other’s company and try something new. You won’t regret it.
