Hi friends! Wasn’t that a weird 4th of July being on a Tuesday this year?! It made me feel all out of whack, constantly forgetting what day of the week it was since Friday, but I guess that’s a good thing, right?! We took an impromptu family trip to Lost Pines in Bastrop, Texas and it was so much fun! We’ve been before with just James, but this trip was even better with two kiddos and so much to do that we got to take advantage of this time.
We went Saturday morning and came back Monday morning, but I wish we had stayed one more day. The typical two-hour car trip took 4 hours with traffic (we left at 11 am), a stop at Subway and, of course, the obligatory pitstop at Buccee’s. If you road trip in Texas, you have to stop at Buccee’s. James got a pair of realistic handcuffs and played with them all weekend and I got a bag of caramel popcorn and ate 3/4 of it on the trip, then felt sick! Ahh, vacation life! But, I really recommend a two-night stay if you visit Lost Pines because, once you get there, it takes some time to actually relax, so one more day would’ve been even better! For us, once we were really getting into the vacation groove, it was time to come home!
ROAD TRIPS WITH KIDS
Because the trip was planned last minute, we packed the morning of and just threw everything in the car. I kept my road trip outfit comfy and casual, and because I get cold in the car, wore a longer sleeve top. It’s so comfy I actually wore it home too.
