Summer has officially arrived – and boy did it come in like a blaze of glory with the intense heat and humidity over the past few days. Needless to say, I’m happy that sometime early this morning we’ll be hitting the road and heading for cooler weather – not cold, but cooler and definitely not stifling.
Today is the first day of our vacation as we travel across the country in 2 cars with 2 kids, 2 dogs and 2 crazy adults. It’s finally here. Today.
Sure, I may not be looking forward to being behind the wheel for 11-13 hours today as we head West, but it is going to be nice to be unplugged for a bit, and let the kids see some of the country. I mapped out some fun and unique touristy places for our ‘to’ and ‘from’ routes, which will break up the monotony of the long drive.
The other day I did some last minute road trip snack shopping – things like baked chips, white cheddar Cheetos (you know, because the orange ones are way messier), beef jerky, Slim Jims (the hubby and Princess Nagger’s favorites) and even healthier snacks like nuts, cheese sticks, apple slices, baby carrots, snap peas and celery sticks.
I spent time slicing and portioning everything into Ziploc bags so they’ll be easy grab’n’go from coolers we’ll have in each car.
Which brings me to this week’s question:
What kinds of snacks do you bring on road trips?
Have a great weekend.
Happy Aloha Friday!
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So on Fridays let’s take it easy on posting, too. Ask a simple question…nothing that requires a lengthy response. It’s a great way to make new blogging friends!
