We’re pretty much experts when it comes to taking road trips. Since it’s just us out here in Vegas, and both our families live in Northern California, we’ve put quite a few miles on the car.
Even our kids are pros. My daughter took her first road trip at just 8 days old.. Granted it wasn’t planned, she and her still recovering mommy both did excellent. And my son probably has close to 5,000 miles under his belt with the 2 trips he’s done.
Earlier this month we took a 2-week long road trip to Northern California. We managed to spend lots of quality time with family,
toured Alcatraz Island,
did a small hike at Mt. Tamalpais up in San Marin,
saw Pink Floyd at AT&T Park in San Francisco,
left the kids for a night with my mom and celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary at a quaint little B&B in Napa,
and even took the long way home down the Pacific Coast Highway stoping in Pismo Beach for the night.
With all the time spent in the car, we could have made it all the way to Disney World.
In order to have a successful road trip, we preplanned a tentative itinerary so that we could maximize our time spent with friends and family and minimize time spent in the car. This is especially important when you’ve got a 7 month old, 2.5 year old, and the family dog. I have to say it was our most successful one yet.
Now we’re preparing for a family vacation to Georgia and flying with kids for the first time in about a month. You can be sure that I’ll be blogging about that.
Love this blog Terri 🙂
Thanks Tris. There was so much I wanted to write, but I didn’t want a crazy long blog, so I just kept it simple. It was so nice hanging with you and little man during our trip 🙂
Great pics and sounds like you had an amazing time!
yes it was, and yes we did!
