Ol' Griswold Family Fun

May 4, 2015

In the age of iPads, Snagriswolds1.jpgpChat, Twitter and iPhones it can be difficult to connect with your tweens and teens.  They want to hole themselves up in their rooms connecting with friends over digital mediums pretending their life is “so lame” rather than spending quality time with their family. 

Well Mom and Dad, it is time to take that stuff, hide it in a closet and force some good ol’ Griswold family vacation on them!

We have 5 bus trips this summer that will connect you with your kid again and *gasp!* you’ll all have fun doing it!  The deadlines are fast approaching so don’t miss out and register online!
