The drive from Lexington, Kentucky is about 9 hours. With two kids in tow, it can take a little longer. :) So, the most essential part of the packing process includes road trip survival kits.
|The math workbooks were a nice thought in theory :)|
The kids aren't the only ones that need a little help making it through about 9 hours on the road. Momma needs to survive too!
I learned to crochet a few years ago. It keeps me busy so the time flies by. I did help drive (a little) - thank goodness the hubs was back to driving a week before we left. His ankle is almost completely back to normal.
All the time spent traveling was so worthwhile. Watching my little peeps play on the beach was priceless.
I taught the boy how to boogie board this time. He was pretty impressed with his momma. I don't know how to surf, but I can boogie with the best of them. :) Just sayin'.
All in all we had a great time! The icing on the cake was meeting up with a blog friend. There's something magical about the beach, and Kiawah Island never disappoints.
Where do you like to vacation with your family? Do you like to beach bum it as much as we do? Anyone have any road trip survival skills they'd like to share?
On another note, I'm guest posting over at Living Savvy today! Tiffany invited me over to join her spray painters anonymous support group. :) Clearly she knows I'm obsessed.
