2 Parents +1 Grandparent+ 2 kids+ 1 stroller+ trunk full of luggage = Family Vacation


June 20, 2012 by CassieCravings

The road trip.

It is cramped, long and full of off-key singing.

Last year was Eli’s very first road trip. It went really well, so we decided to make it a little more interesting this year. We added a mother-in-law and 11 year-old brother-in-law to the mix.

Interesting indeed.

we crammed all 5 of us, the luggage, the toys and books, the diapers, the snacks and the stroller into my Mazda 6.

Our way to San Antonio

We left before the sun rose that morning There were a few stops along to way for stretching legs and changing diapers. 6 hours later, we were there: San Antonio, TX.

I learned a few things on this 6 hour drive:

1. Mother-in-laws have the best gossip.

2. Little Eli isn’t fond of sitting for 6 hours, even with my fantastic repertoire of songs and his favorite toys.

3. Reading in a car with a toddler, a tween, a mother-in-law, a husband and a GPS will not happen.

All-in-all it was a great drive. The kids were patient with us. The GPS app got us to where we were going. The drive was beautiful and scenic.

A little sneak peak of a few of our adventures in San-Antonio (more to come!)

Sneak Peak: Sea World

Another Sea World shot (one of my favorites)
