Road Trip Ramblings

Family road trips can either scar you or get into your veins. For me, it's in my blood. I love road trips. There is nothing like getting into the car and taking off knowing that you have an adventure ahead of you....more

American Adventure- World Records & Wine

So on Monday, after 5 full days in Wilmington we headed back to Lexington. This post might be quite short. The very first bit of the trip was brilliant, after that it got a little tough and not that much fun!...more

Road Trip to Florida day 1

June 8th, 5:00 am we pulled out of our driveway to begin our road trip!  I had high hopes of leaving then, but with two kids and my hatred of waking up before dawn, I was not that optimistic.  Thankfully the stars aligned and we headed out! Our plan was to drive all the way to Savannah that day.  The drive is about 14 hours.  We would then only have about 4 hours onto Orlando the next day.  It is so much better to push and do the majority of the driving one day....more

Back from Disney!!

We're home from Florida!!  11 days...10 nights...5 different hotels....over 2,000 miles...two five year three year old...and we all survived.  More than that actually, I would turn around and do it all again in a heartbeat {waking up to 68* here in Jersey didn't help either...I miss the heat}  I will have lots of posts coming up in the next few days....more

Lessons from a Road Trip

Something about road trips that takes me back to my single days. I loved getting in the car with my music, my snacks (never forget the snacks), my itinerary and hitting the open road. There was something about the idea of being alone with my thoughts, with God, that just made me feel brave and excited and adventurous....more

Breastfeeding on the Go: Taking a Road Trip with a Breastfed Baby

We took a 6-day road trip at the end of December with our four boys, ages 7, 5, 2, and 2 months. We traveled from the Bay Area, California, to Las Vegas via Yosemite and Death Valley, then from Vegas on to our old stomping grounds near San Diego, and from there back home to the Bay Area. It was a great trip, and the boys did very well in the car....more

Worst Road Trip Mom Ever

My family recently drove from Fort Worth, TX to North Dakota.  Like, almost to Canada, North Dakota.  I’m not going to lie, on the way TO our destination, I rocked.  We were ready to go early.  We had nutritious snacks and beverages waiting for us in the car.  We read stories and played games.  It was awesome.  ...more

Day 21 - Road Tunes... AKA Singing Alone in the Car and Not Caring

Planning a Road Trip with Kids

Planning a road trip can be a big challenge and often requires a lot of thought. I for one, spent weeks writing lists and planning so I didn't forget anything. The biggest tip I can give you is, BE ORGANISED. There is nothing worse than getting on the road and realizing you forgot something. You then end up stopping at a roadhouse in the middle of no where to buy the forgotten item (in my case - spoons) and quite often its 5 times the usual price you would pay at home....more
