I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately – about going to visit my parents. But you see, they live in Northern Washington, and we live in Northern California. Which is not exactly a hop skip and a jump away…
Which leads me down the path of thinking…. road trip?!?
I’ll be honest I haven’t yet attempted a long haul road trip with all three littles, and this adventure would most likely be just me and them, but here are my thoughts on the matter. I think that all kiddos should have to endure a long road trip, if only for the sake of learning some kind of patience and how to endure to the end. You might be laughing, but I am 100% serious. In this day and age of instant gratification, fast food, and a fast pace life, it’s often so much easier to just give in to my littles whims than to argue or explain a better way with them. But a road trip… 3 days in the car with minimal stops teaches you something. Even if that ‘something’ is simply the best way to annoy your sister, I still feel that it’s important to learn to stick it out and keep going. Since that’s what real life is all about. Enduring to the end, and doing it in style.
So naturally, while thinking about this road trip my mind started thinking about the types of snacks I should think about brining to help keep everyone’s belly’s happy. Here are my top 10 tasty road trip treats for the whole family:
