My family and I decided a short getaway to Lake Geneva in Wisconsin would be the perfect summer trip.  We found a great deal on a resort via groupon, and talked up the waterpark to HJ.  The part I was worried most about?  A 4 and a half hour road trip.

I knew I had to have plenty of things to keep HJ’s mind off the road.  I started by packing his dvd player, a few movies and some books.  Then, I loaded up the snacks.  Our must-have for a roadtrip is HJ’s Snackeeze.  I filled up the beverage part with ice water, and the top part with blueberries and strawberries.  Perfect for snacking on the road!  I love that I don’t have to worry about snackeeze tipping over and spilling in the car.  The beverage does not leak!

(HJ loves to nap in cars, it’s one of the only places I can still get him to nap)

As for myself, I hot up the library and grabbed a few books.  I finally snagged a copy of Gone Girl, and I loved it.  The ending really threw me for a loop, but I thought it was perfectly fitting.   I am thinking about picking up a few more of the author’s books, any recommendations?

What are your roadtrip must haves?

    Glad to hear you had fun in Lake Geneva…it’s a fun place. Both of Gillian Flynn’s other books are great but I recommend Sharp Objects first…just finished it recently myself and really enjoyed it!
