I assume you mean that you have received DACA as the Dream Act was not passed. You may travel within the United States with approved DACA. You would need to contact the airline you are traveling for specific information about traveling as a minor.

If you are traveling by automobile, you will be subject to inspection at Sarita, Texas just south of Corpus Christi, Texas on your return trip. You should be prepared to present your DACA approval and your unexpired EAD. You also should obtain a letter of consent from your parents in order to travel with your boyfriend's family. Good luck to you.
