Before we get to today's business - today is the very last day to order a Light and Momentary shirt in support of Ashleigh Range and her family. (click here to read all about Ashleigh's story, how we came up with the shirt design and why this is so important to her).
I won't be ordering any extra shirts, so get on it and order NOW! (and then tell your friends, family, co-workers and strangers) ;)
Well, we're off! We left for Colorado yesterday afternoon and should be arriving in Vail late this afternoon.
This is our first family road trip and I decided to keep it simple as far as in-car-entertainment was concerned. Wireless headphones and new movies from the library, comfy blankets and lots of snacks. I nixed toys and puzzles and all of that because the thought of the arguing over who had what and the "I just dropped the most important piece of my toy underneath the second row to never be seen again" tears were just too much ;)
I did make each of the kids a binder...
I googled road trip printables and came across this great "Are We There Yet" page. He has to identify something that begins with each letter of the alphabet and write it on the lines.
I also included word searches,
Mad Libs and Math worksheets :)
I made sure to give him lots of variety and mixed up all the pages.
Mason's is similar, but is mainly coloring pages.
I did find a cute scavenge hunt.
I made sure to include lots of his favorites...
Griffin's book includes all coloring pages - the same ones as her brothers (a girls gotta have her Ninja Turtles!) as well as lots of princesses and alphabet pages.
I'll report back later and let you know whether or not the binders were a success.
Luke has been really into photography lately and so I thought it would be fun to put him in charge of "Flat Stanley-esque" assignment while we are out of town. I thought about making our own Flat Stanley, but instead I ordered this puppy for us to take along. Her name is Chloe O'Brien (Jack Bauer's right hand girl!) and she's coming with us since Jack can't. Luke is in charge of taking her with us and photographing her along the way. ;)
My parents came by on Monday night because they had a surprise for Luke to go along with Chloe...
His own GoPro!!! He's officially cooler than me :)
I'm currently in the car reading up on how to use it, but he's going to have so much fun!
And if you're wondering why I picked this puppy, here's why :)
We are so excited to escape the heat and enjoy some quality family time (while wearing hoodies).
Be sure to keep up with our trip on Instagram and THANK YOU to everyone for the hashtag suggestions. I decided to go with #roadfessionals , although #crazytowndoescolorado was a close second :) hahaha
