As a kid I loved getting in the car and going for drives. They were mini-adventures. Often stopping for ice cream along the way or at a park. 

It was the feeling of togetherness and family bonding. We connected. 

Now more than ever that connection needs to be nurtured. Families are busy and prioritizing family time is so important.

I started Five for the Road to encourage families to embrace their own family adventures. 

It could be a day trip, a mountain climb, or playing baseball in your backyard. 

It is about creating family connections and memories

Family Traditions Are Important to US! 

The moments I remember most about growing up are the traditions we made as a family.

Movie nights and vacations are some of the best memories from my childhood.  I value these moments for my own family and want to inspire you to create special family traditions of your own.
