Instead of dream vacations to Disney World and hotels with swimming pools and water slides, the parents in "e;Travels with My Family"e; insist on obscure destinations in the middle of nowhere. They're determined to go, even if it means hours of dull driving filled with countless back-seat, argument-inducing games of Twenty Questions and out-loud readings of the How to Change a Tire chapter from the owner s manual. But bad as the travel is, it's nothing compared to what happens when they arrive: eating grasshoppers in Mexico, forgetting the tide schedule while collecting sand dollars off the coast of Georgia, and mistaking alligators for logs in the middle of Okefenokee Swamp.
"e;Travels with My Family"e; is told from the point of view of a long-suffering big brother who must attend to many responsibilities in this eccentric family keep little brother out of trouble; humor artistic Mom while she seeks out beauty and inspiration in the least likely places; and discourage nearsighted, tone-deaf Dad from pulling out the road map to search for yet another strange destination."e;
