My Travel Story

by: Stephanie Dodson Start Date: Jun 8, 2016 - End Date: Jun 7, 2017
I've thought long and hard about what I wanted to say here. We have talked about taking a trip to NY and DC for years now. Tristin has such a strong love for history it just fits. Everything about it captures his attention. It always has. Last year, he was offered an opprotunity to go on a school trip overseas (March 2017). After sitting down as a family we decided that trip would not be best. Thats when we started talking about what to do for his graduation and this trip came up. He's not really big into parties, never has been. (Unless we are talking about bowling for his birthday! He's always down for that) This trip has always been something he's wanted to do. We are going to give it to him! This kid is AMAZING. He is quiet, polite, a hard worker and he loves his family something firece! I said he was a hard worker... He goes to school and works 2 jobs. (one of which is seasonal, but he still does it.)

We thought that, instead of people sending him graduation gifts, donations towards his trip would be amazing! Any donation we receive will go towards his part of the trip, and any extra things he may want to do, extra nights, souviners, etc. We started this campaign early so we'd have time to work everything out. We have a year!!! (YAY!)

If you are able to send him some money, we thank you. If you are able to just send congratulations and well wishes, we thank you for that too. We appreciate each and every one of you and thank you for being in our lives!!

  • The Countdown Is On!

    The countdown is on!
    That's right folks! We are in the home stretch. To say I am baffled is an understatement. LOL Who KNEW paying for all the graduation things needed would add up so quickly! S'all good. We've got this. Tristin is getting more and more excited about our trip! We are trying to plan New York as well as DC. Time is always a major factor. We know when we are leaving now, so at least that's helpful. (and nerve wrecking. Am I running out of time? Maybe. Haha.) At any rate. I could ramble on forever. The excitement is growing! Thank you for looking and following along with all of this. If anything we are also looking for IDEAS! Shortcuts, MUST SEE's, best places to eat (NY and DC) Just let us know! Thanks so much everyone!
