Let them vote!

It is often the case that you already know* or don’t care** what your kids think you should do on a given day of your vacation. But sometimes you don’t know and you do care.

Perhaps you are trying to choose one of two options for the afternoon.  Or you are trying to decide to go out for an adventure of some kind or just stay at your cabin, hotel or campsite and relax.

So find out. Give them the opportunity to say what they think. Let them have some ownership of your itinerary. And they might surprise you with their answer.

* Hmmm, I wonder if the kids want to go to the swimming park today?

** What, the Star Trek Hall Of Fame is only three miles off our route? We’re so going!
