Epic Road Trip

We're leaving on an epic road trip.
We will be gone a little over a month! Covering several states, mostly the east coast.
It is going to be Griswold-esque!

You know, David, me, our newborn, our one year old, our three year old, our four year old, our five year old, and yes, the dog too! There will be eight of us in the mini van... who am I kidding it will be way more intense than the sweet family of four known as the Griswolds!

On top of our car will be Big Bertha, the enormous suitcase we own, our trusty red wagon, a pack-n-play, and of course, our six beach chairs:) Inside, will be everything we need for on the road...

It should be a blast.

And while on this epic journey, Laila will turn three, my best friend will get married, we will celebrate Mother's Day for the first time as a complete family, I will turn 28, we will see all grandparents, most great-grandparents, all cousins, all aunts and uncles, four of the seven will get to see the ocean for the first time, six of the seven will see our nations capitol for the first time, and it WILL be fun!

I will surely be updating as we make our way across, down, up, around, and back up through our nation:)
And surely it will be entertaining!


  1. That sounds awesome and maybe a tad chaotic! Hope its a blast : )

  2. How is it going? We were thinking of doing a much brief road trip with our 3 y/o but he seems to have so many meltdowns in the car that we thought better of it. I wish I knew how to make a road trip work at this potty-training, oppositional phase he's in!
