Hi there!! [[internet wave]] We’re the Spring Break Family – a normal, busy, working family of four (sometimes 5) that happens to be wonderfully blended and also happens to love travel.
Have you heard of the term “just 18 summers”? It refers to the limited amount of time you get with your kids before they grow and venture into other things. We apply that philosophy to our kids except we utilize spring break- hence the name 🙂. Every spring break we take our kids – affectionately referred to as “the girls” – on a week long trip where we learn, grow, and experience new things TOGETHER. Time, even when it is well spent, can sometimes feel so finite. This page, this little slice of Internet heaven, is where we will journal what we do to make the most of it all.
The main contributor to this site — the unparalleled Montoya — is the matriarch of our madness, the regulator of our recreation, the generator of our games…. and obviously a huge fan of alliteration 🙂 She loves technology, home DIY projects, finessing our budget, and traveling.
Her partner in crime — the dashing Phillip — is Montoya’s knight in shining armor and the girls’ favorite parent 🙂 While he initially wasn’t hip to the travel game, he’s finally come to his senses and is a self proclaimed travel king.
Together with our girls — two daughters and a niece — we manage life, make memories, and try to have as much fun as we can along the way.
Glad to have you along for the journey!
