20 Most Instagram-Worthy Roadside Attractions


There’s just something about road trips and stopping to take photos at fun and quirky roadside attractions, like Cadillac Ranch in Texas and Foamhenge in Virginia. One of my personal favorites is South of the Border, a road stop in South Carolina. You’ll see colorful billboards, like “Pedro’s Weather Report: Chili Today, Hot Tamale!,” for miles and miles (and miles). If […]

Summer is officially here and I imagine your vacation planning is in full swing. We’re going loads of places this summer from beaches to mountains to national parks to big cities. It’s both exciting and overwhelming at the same time. I know that the most exciting adventures are often the unplanned ones, but I just don’t want to miss one […]

We’re going to San Antonio this summer as part of our cross-country road trip. I’ve never been before, and really, I don’t know much about San Antonio beyond the scene from Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure when Pee-Wee takes a tour of The Alamo to see the basement and find his bicycle. I know, pretty sad, right? So, I’ve been doing a […]

10 Great KOA Campgrounds for Kids

I’ve mentioned several times that I am decidedly not a camper, at least not a “pitch your own tent” kind of camper. I don’t know how to pitch a tent, at least not yet, and I don’t own a sleeping bag. However, I do love a good campground. Three years, ago, we stayed in deluxe cabins at the Mystic KOA […]

Yup, You’re “Doin’ Good”

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Minute Maid®. All opinions are 100% mine. Like many other moms and dads, I struggle with whether I’m doing a good job. As a parent, that is. I think that’s one of the reasons why I’m piling the kids into the minivan and we’re spending seven weeks on the […]

10 Best Tips to Manage Car Sickness

road trip-car sickness

As excited as I am to hit the road this summer, there’s one thing I am very much not excited about: motion sickness. My 11 y.o. Clare, in particular, is very much prone to getting sick in the car. I’m hoping she outgrows this, but for now, it’s not much fun. We’ve tried Dramamine for Kids. It’s worked fine, but […]

Sleep in a Teepee: 8 Places to Do Just That


I really, really want to stay in a teepee during our road trip this summer. I know, that sounds random. But, seriously, how fun would that be? Unfortunately, that hasn’t worked out, at least not yet. Most teepees are better suited for a family of four, and those that do sleep five or six aren’t on our route. However, sleeping […]
