Ok! So we did it – our very first road trip. It’s not over yet — we are still here in Vermont, but all the anxiousness of starting it all is finally over. I was totally freaking out because of Caleb. I didn’t know how he would react being in a car seat for so long. Turns out… he didn’t like it very much. And when I say very much… I mean NOT AT ALL. More on that in a bit.  

Let’s start at the beginning. I didn’t pack up anything until the morning of which was a HUGE mistake because I was running around like a freaking animal trying to get everything in order until the kids came home from camp.



We all got in the car and made a little video. And then we were OFF. It all started off fine and dandy in the beginning. We watched movies. Caleb slept. It was awesome. But then my 5 month old woke up.

Turns out my boy HATES long rides. We had to stop about 6 times! OMG! It added a good 2 hours to our drive. I couldn’t believe it. I think it should have taken us something like 7 hours and it ended up taking us 9+ hours.


another reason to stop: stretch breaks

At one point, I started to lose it because I just couldn’t hear Caleb cry anymore. But there was NO OUT. We were HOURS AND HOURS AWAY FROM HOME. We just had to keep going.

Eventually we made it! Stay tuned. I seriously have a ba-billion (yes, that’s a word) posts to publish. I’m going to try to mix them up with beauty and fashion posts to not completely KILL you with travel write ups. But I can’t help it. We really did a lot so far on this trip!!
