Road trips are our happy place. If I say “road trip” my kid jumps. He equally loves the unknown adventures that lie ahead. I think he also loves the actual traveling – a car full of snacks and sandwiches, drawing activities, books, music and a slew of Magic Treehouse audio books. Audio books are my secret to happy long trips, making the “are we there yet” questions further apart. The spontaneous stops are always a must and always require a change of clothes as I seem to find the wettest and muddiest of places.

Ninja kung fu battles are wild child’s favorite activity to do with his dad, no matter where we’re at.
Gotta love this California light!
Tag is our favorite game and it never gets old.
