It’s been a crazy three weeks. We have successfully completed two full road trips and boy where they fun! First we went to Las Vegas to visit Austin’s cousin and his family. Las Vegas is about a 3 hour drive from Los Angeles. It took us almost 5 hours with all the stops along the way. This past Mother’s Day weekend we went up to Mammoth Lakes to visit my parents. Mammoth is a 6 hour drive from Los Angeles which took us roughly 9 hours with all the baby stops along the way.
We have a few more road trips planned for the remainder of the year and I’m sure we will squeeze in a few unplanned ones as well. Road trips are just a fun, easy and affordable way to travel. Previously I wrote two posts about Road Trip planning with a baby, read them here: How To Love Going On Road Trips With Your Baby and 7 Astoundingly Epic Road Trip Splurges. The best part about Road Trips for me is the bonding that you get to do in the car along the way. You see new things, chat and have sing-a-longs. You also get to discover some cool new restaurants and attractions.

Since my last post How To Love Going On Road Trips With Your Baby just a mere three days ago my hubby and I added another Road Trip to our calendar. I’m super excited about all the fun things we have planned this year. In order to prep the way only a true Organized Mother can prep, I began to envision my road trip must haves. The more I thought about it the more I realized we already have some pretty amazing things that we have been using all these years.
In no particular order I have listed items that we have splurged on in the past to make our road trips top notch. In today’s post I am listing 7 Astoundingly Epic Road Trip Splurges. When you see the list below you will not know how you ever traveled without them! I know that I totally can’t.

When Morgan was just 7 months old we took our first Road Trip with her. We drove from Los Angeles to Mammoth Lakes. A roughly 6 and half hour trip to visit my parents. With Morgan the trip ended up taking almost 9 hours, but it was well worth the extra time. Morgan was a pure joy in the car, but then again most 7 month old’s are because they tend to sleep most of the time. Here we are today, Morgan is now 16 months old and we will be taking that same Road Trip in just two weeks.
We learned a lot from that first trip. We also learned a lot from several smaller trips we have taken since. Including a three hour disastrous crying frenzy of a trip to Oxnard for a Strawberry Festival. Luckily that trip wasn’t the norm and since then we have learned how to keep an active toddler entertained on a long car ride. In today’s post I am going to share with you How To Love Going On Road Trips With Your Baby.
