My most brilliant of brilliant ideas usually come to me when I’m doing housework. I try not to do too much housework, because really, y’all couldn’t handle my constant brilliance. Trust me on this one.
Anyhoo, as I was slaving away ironing clothes the other day it struck me – I should take LG on a road trip this summer! A good old-fashioned, throwback to .78/gallon gasoline road trip.
Why? Because I want to go home and the thought of paying more than a grand to fly to Cali just pisses me off. So I decided I could take a couple weeks off, rent a itty bitty gas conscious something, pack a bag or two, throw LG in the back, and hit the open road. We’d save a couple hundred bucks (maybe), she’d see parts of the U.S. she’s not yet seen, and we could spend hour upon endless hour together. I’ve even thought about swinging by and picking up my niece and nephew so they could join us for this epic adventure.
Clearly, I’ve lost my mind.
But the more I think about it, the more excited I am about the possibility of making it happen 🙂
If I were coming through your neck of the woods, what sights, restaurants, experiences would you recommend? Have you taken a road trip with your child(ren) before? How’d that work out for ya? Any recommendations or tips?
