One of the things I like best about summer is the lack of a schedule. During the summer months, the kids and I are pretty much on our own schedule as my husband works long days on the farm. I become the runner, with things like basketball camp and summer rec and swimming lessons filling in the calendar between dentist appointments and trips to the grocery store.
Somewhere in there, I attempt to keep up with laundry and housework and my favorite summer activity: planning our vacation.
Soon, we’ll be off for a family gathering in the South Dakota’s Black Hills, followed by our Twizzlers trip to Pikes Peak, Colorado. The past few weeks have seen me making lists and checking them twice, preparing the kids’ vacation books, and making sure we have all our ducks in a row before heading out on the open highway.
We’re especially excited about our sponsored Twizzlers trip that will take us through Nebraska, Colorado, and Wyoming. Remember that Twizzlers is not only hosting ten traveling families as they visit America’s landmarks this summer, but you also could win a family roadtrip and other prizes by visiting the Twizzlers website. You can enter every day.
And now, back to packing . . .
Do you have any roadtrips, short or long, planned for your summer vacation?
