Some of our most memorable family vacations were Disney Vacations. One such vacation we took was to attend a church conference in Anaheim, California.
That Disneyland was a part of the travel package qualified it as being included in our list of best vacations, according to our kids. My favorite pastor family vacations involved fishing and camping but for the kids, Disney in the destination made it their favorite.
We took family camping trips and family beach vacations too, yet for any of these family favorites to be considered for our best vacation list, it had to involve more than great destinations or fun places to go.
The vacation travels I consider best were often given to us as pastor appreciation gifts and helped us bond as a family.
Now it takes more than a father's opinion to qualify as our best travel excursions. For us, to be classified as best meant that they were family friendly vacations.
We learned that vacations for kids needed to be fun
to get their vote as to being best. Of course, for mom and dad, the
best trips were those where our family bonded together, and the many
Disney vacations we have taken over the years qualified too.
Many of our favorite family trips were given as gifts of travel, which added to their being special.
Reflecting back on what we consider family fun vacations, some of our best family trips were given as expressions of pastor appreciation. These gifts of travel often made it possible to take trips otherwise unaffordable on a pastor's salary.

Travel gifts given to us as a pastor appreciation gift were considered best when we realized that our church family recognized our need to get away and get refreshed in body and spirit.
