Road Trip!!

Parent Bloggers Network asked folks to think about vacations, past and future. I don't get out much, but I must say our family enjoys road trips. So...should I chronicle the business trip when Amigo rode along with his dad in a brand new live truck for the television station? Recent trips to Chicago to see Wicked and later to cheer on the White Sox? The stop on the way there at the Converse outlet store? (Breathe, daughter, breathe) How about the journeys of Flat Stanley?

One of the fun parts of traveling with older teens is (gasp) sharing the driving. I'm a morning person, and La Petite is a night owl. On a long trip, my coffee and I will get us going, and she'll get us to the destination courtesy of her Mt. Dew. In a big city or an unfamiliar area, one can drive while the other navigates.

Amigo really enjoys the radio on long trips. He will tune in a local station and enjoy the accents. He has it in his head that we need to take a trip to Canton, Ohio, and Cooperstown, New York to visit their respective halls of fame. I could be talked into it...well, it's a strong possible maybe.

If part of the adventure is finding a place to stay, I could look into, a place that helps find quality lodgings in a variety of locales. And maybe, just maybe, we'll be singing "On the road again" or "Movin' right along" as we hit the highway.

Pick the Place, Pack Your Bags, and Let's Go!

Mother/daughter shoe shopping. Now that is MY kinda road trip!

Thanks for stopping by my blog :) I LOVE your name, makes me think of spring.

And 'Compost Happens' sounds much better than the tagline of my life which is 'sh#t and toothpaste' thanks to my little 'painter' Boo. Might have to steal that tag line from you. Mwaaaa Haaa Haaaa

Our family loves road trips too! My son is only 12, but for now, he does make a good navigator. Having some help with the driving would be nice, but the thought of him ever being old enough to drive - I'm just not ready for! :)
