Family visits all 50 states in one year

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (WCCO/CNN) – A Florida family took a break their busy schedules to visit all of the 50 states.

"We all know each other really well, more than we did," Kathi Belcher said. "Which you would think you know family really well, until you spend a year in a tiny tin box."

Kathi and John Belcher wanted to escape the busyness of life, so with their four kids they left home in their RV 11-months ago to tour the country. Kathi has been home-schooling her children while they are on the road.

"Getting out having them be outside and play with sticks and rocks, being in nature is one of the best parts of this trip," John Belcher said.

Their last stop on the tour is in the land of 10,000 lakes at the "Mall of America" in Minneapolis.
