I love summer. I love surprises. I love making plans (even indefinite ones. They may be the best kind!). So when my super cool sister-in-law pinned this on Pinterest, with the idea to make it a summer passport for kiddos, I was all over it.
|Have Cuisinart, will travel!|
Since I had to put a few hours of work in that morning, the Mr. packed the car and got us ready to hit the road. The greatest part of the plan was picking Homey up and just driving East without telling her where she was going. So far, her biggest excitement was being a car-rider as opposed to going to after school camp.
|Hello! I am now a 2nd Grader!|
So she hops in the car (filled to the gills with bags, road trip activities, boogie boards, etc.) She didn't seem to notice. I gave her the Summer Passport, and we read through all the fun things we'd try to stamp through this summer.
She still didn't really notice that we'd been on the highway for a while. We asked if she wondered where she was going. "Nah, *yawn*. I'm just glad to be going somewhere." Ha!!
Well, go somewhere we shall! We got all the way through the "All Beaches This Way" signs, still nothing really phasing her (and we were 4 hours in!) FINALLY, we go over a hill and see the beach in front of us. Her response? "Is that the beach? Can we stop and see it?" Um. Yes. We can.
After being thrilled about getting to stay in a hotel (add to list of Homey's favorite things. "It even has hangers and an ironing board!" Impressive, I suppose), she got to geek out about the sugar cereal that we never have at home.
And other than a little tropical storm named Andrea, we had a blast! Just a few shots of our quick beach weekend:
