I do have lots of things to share and pictures too, of course! We'll start with our first family road trip for Spring Break. Wow, what a success!! It was a great and memorable trip. We traveled through 9 states and visited family in 3 different cities. A lot of time was spent in the car for sure, but I made these cute entertainment baskets to keep the kiddos busy! They worked...we only watched about 4 movies the whole trip (22 hours there, 18 hours home). Our first stop was Gibson, Georgia to visit John's brother Eddie and his wife, Lori and their kids, Hagan, Emma and Alyssa. It was a lot of fun and the kids were instant friends.
|Car activity baskets, made with Dollar Tree finds. The metal cookie sheets worked as lap desk, magnet boards and dry erase too!|
|Ready to go...we left at 10:00 p.m. Friday night, March 8. Everyone was freshly bathed and in comfy jammies/clothes.|
|Our first stop was Gibson Georgia! We spent the weekend with Uncle Eddie, Aunt Lori and all the kids!|
|The Boyen cousins! Lorelei was mad because we couldn't stay longer.|
|Bored at the car shop!|
We had some lunch in the area, and then headed to the lake.
|She loved her "dog rolls"...AKA Hush puppies!|
|Lake Wylie, SC.|
|A great little park on the lake.|
|Jonas and Savannah couldn't resist putting their feet in even though it was quite chilly!|
Our next part of the trip was to head into North Carolina to see John's mom and dad. We made a stop at one our favorite mountain areas...Chimney Rock.
|Daffodils on the side of the road!|
|Beautiful mountain stream.|
