Road Trip: Surprises
So, I have wrapped up some fun little surprises for my kids. My brother and my mother think that I'm a little over the top with my custom Road Trip labels for the gifts, wrapped in brown paper and blue ribbons. But, I'm hoping that I'm helping to create a fun memory for the kids.
Those of you who are practically minded, if you look closely you might see that each of the gifts is numbered. I have a master list of the items I've wrapped. I can check my list for an appropriate gift for the moment. Then I can cross it off my list, so I know what I still have left. I'm hoping this helps us to pace ourselves along the trip. It would be so sad if we got there and had opened ALL the gifts and we had nothing left for the return journey!
Post Road Trip Update: This was by far the BEST thing that I did. The kids LOVED, LOVED, LOVED getting to open up something new. Some things were a bigger hit than others, as you will see when you follow us along the trip. But this, in my mind, is a MUST for any road trip you are planning!
