Family road trips: Now I understand

I declare this entire month to be #Disney month on my blog. Yes, I'm a huge Disney buff, but I just came back from a road trip with my family (all 6 of us, stuffed into my Pontiac Montana, for 45 hours total driving time), and I had a really great time. I can't believe I am saying that, but its true.

I'll be posting videos and pics as soon as I can get them off the phone and camera, as well as my reviews of the Grand Californian Resort where we stayed for 5 days.

We worked our way up the coast of Californian and even popped into San Francisco for an afternoon.

Yes, it was a long and crazy drive, and yes, it took on a Griswald quality occasionally. I think that when we stopped people thought we were living in our car, but I am so enthusiastic about the time I spent with my kids that I just feel good about it all.

I'll be back with pics.


  1. Welcome back! I couldn't imagine all of us on that big of a trip in our van (we've got a Montana too lol!) but glad it worked out for you :)

  2. Welcome home! I cannot wait to hear more about your grand adventure!!

  3. 45 hours?! Whoa... I will no longer complain about out six hour road trips from Northern to Southern California!
