So it’s fallen on you to plan the family reunion. On the stress and difficulty scale, organizing a family reunion falls somewhere between planning a wedding and throwing a birthday party for a loved one. By nature, family reunions are hard to plan because they involve reuniting people - many of whom live in different places with vastly different schedules and availability. The keys to planning a great family reunion, however, are to maximize attendance, stay true to your family when it comes to specifics, and make sure you have some help.

Visit Kansas City, Kansas sent me on a day of fun to discover art, food and drinks in places you may not think to look. If you're looking to take family or friends on a day of adventure then this agenda is for you. I went to a quaint but eccentric art gallery, saw some incredible murals, ate some amazing pizza and cozied up at a lounge to end the day. During the summer months, it’s hard to come up with a plan that everyone will enjoy but this adventure was one that could cater to many. 

Despite our children being young, travel is something our family is big on. There's something so special about experiencing new adventures as a family. The main thing we've learned about family travel is that it should involve RELAXATION! So many times, as parents, we embark on vacations overwhelmed, overbooked, and over­stressed... only to return home feeling the same way. I'm guilty of this. I vowed to do just the opposite on my family’s staycation to Kansas City, KS… and I succeeded! I picked up a few tricks along the way.
