On the Road, Making Memories

By Marie |

We LOVE going on road trips! We pile everything and everyone in the car, make sure we’ve got some snacks, and we’re off.

We head to a beach house, camping trip, even 12 hours to Grandma’s house.

But all the while, it’s quality family time. Yes, we live in a digital world. So there is time we let them watch a movie or two (sometimes three). But for the most part, we’re playing car games, listening to a book on tape, or singing our hearts out.

These are the times when taking video of the family is the best. We’re all at our most raw, off the cuff, memory making moments. We’ll go back and watch video from some of our road trips and pat ourselves on the back for getting out the video camera. Although we usually keep our video camera pretty handy knowing the kids will end up doing something silly or cute.

And we always have to film that classic shot of the driver. Every time!!

What do you love about road trips? What fun memories do you have from your family getting in the car and heading out on the road?

    This is a GREAT way to keep the kids occupied/entertained/not complaining when on a long road trip. And it’s something I never would have thought to do! Love it!

    Why have I never thought of this? I always remember to take a picture of the road in front of us, just for fun, but this is genius!

    The last road trip I took for fun (i.e. not for moving cross country) was when I was around 7 years old. I don’t remember much of it, but I know we stopped at some seriously cool places along the way. Hopefully we can use the latest and greatest technology should we ever get around to taking a trip with our kids!
