Road Trip

For months now my mom and I have been searching for some cheap plane tickets to Florida for me and the girls, because we are LONG over due for a visit. After months of searching we still have not found anything that is reasonable, and I am getting really frustrated.

Chris, my brilliant husband is not a fan of flying and has said many times we should pack up the girls and drive. Insert huge eye roll and that was my answer. I love my family, but being stuck in the car for 22 hours with a 2 year old, a 7 year old and my husband...I am already insane, but I would be traumatized for good. So we would forget that idea and keep searching. But like I said up above...we are coming up with nothing.

The idea of driving started to be a little appealing each time we hit a bust in the airline search. Then the other day my mom brought the idea up. Why does the same idea sound more appealing coming from her? Anyways, I laughed at her the same I had Chris so many times. Then something happened. On the way home from work that day I started thinking, maybe this could be fun. Maybe driving all that way is worth it to see my mom and step dad, oh and all the memories we could make for the girls. A family road trip, maybe throw in a little Disney world while we are down there..Maybe my family isn't THAT crazy, that I could spend a little extra time with them in a car, driving 22 hours, just maybe I could handle it.

So today I came into work, requested my vacation and now I have about 30 days to start and finish planning the vacation of our dreams. We have to get in relaxing time by the pool, spending time with the parents, Disney World, oh and sleep, maybe throw in a little food and we will be all set. I can't wait to go home and start packing...yes its thats soon! Sunny Florida here we come, can you handle it?


  1. Yay!!! That will be so much fun!! And I bet the car ride won't be so bad. There will be sleeping involved, and just give the girls lots to do in the car. I LOVED road trips to visit family as a kid. That was half the fun. I still think back on them as fun memories. Yay!!

    Wooohoooo! Disney World! Oh, and mom and dad to boot! It's gonna be fun, Tasha, and you're right the girls will love the memories. Be sure to take lots of pictures!!!

  3. Good for you! I'm actually driving to Florida twice in a month - talk about going INSANE! We are going in May for a Disney Cruise, and then again in June for my neices wedding! :)

  4. Awesome! It will be insane but worth it and the memories the girls will have - priceless! Can't wait to see pictures!

  5. My dad didn't fly, so we were the family of road trips. I now love them. The longest was a road trip from Anchorage Alaska to Caracus, Venezuela. That is a seriously long distance. Have fun on your way to Florida, and take lots of cheesy photos!
