Family Trails


On March 23rd, a mysterious locked crate appeared on our doorstep. In an attached note, we were instructed to keep an eye on our inbox to receive our unlock code on March 27th. In order to keep suspense at bay, we hid the box so we could sort of kind of forget about it. The mystery code was delivered in the form of a fun personalized video. Once we entered the code and unlocked the box (hadn’t done this since high school!), we discovered a personalized map, travel goodies, and an invitation to become a Family Trails blogging family. It didn’t take long for us to say, “Yes!”


Family Trails is an engaging program sponsored by Toyota and the National Center for Families Learning. By partnering with Family Trails, I’ll be sharing our summer adventures on the Family Trails blog and via the #FamilyTrails hashtag. You can share your stories via the hashtag too! We are so excited to be official Family Trails guides and can’t wait to share our explorations with you! Stay tuned!
