This iReport is part of an assignment:
Visited all 50 states?
family with 40 states (so far)
In order for the family to check a state off their list, they have to actually leave the airport. "We don't have criteria beyond that," she said. "We let the kids pick the destination. Each year they take turns."
"We're not competitive, but we do intentionally visit as many states as possible when we're on a road trip."
