Have we lost our minds???

We were planning to take the kids to Europe this summer.  I will be over there anyway, and so will Emily, so we figured it would be a great family trip.

Then my sister mentioned the road trip that she took last summer with her boys, and Gunner was on a mission.  Junior and Abs were on board, and apparently we are now taking a road trip......

Gunner wants to eat a lobster in Maine.

Abs wants to go to the most Eastern part of the US and see the sun rise.

Junior wants to go to NYC.

Em wants to stick with Europe, but agreed that she wants to visit all the ghost towns, etc.

I want to go to Salem, MA.

We found the website  Roadside America that will let us find all the oddities along the way.  Way back when, we visited Foamhenge.  Did you know there are over 50 different "henges" to see?  I think we need to see a few along the way, or eventually all 50.

To make this trip sound even more asinine amazing, Gunner decided we should CAMP the entire way.  So, we are going to travel halfway across the country, in the car, with three kiddos, while touring the US, and we will be camping.

This trip was made for blogging.  I'm excited, in a worried way.  Either we will make some amazing memories, or we will all hate each other at the end of this.

Em will be leaving for college the summer of 2016.  That's just around the corner.  God help me!  Maybe I will take thousands of pictures and put together four albums, so we can have one and each child.  You know, to remind us of the craziness that I am sure will occur.

We are already planning for this crazy BIG event.  Start praying for us now!

That will be a lot of fun! I hope we can do a trip like that too. My sister-in-law did it with camping too.

I was interested until you said CAMP . . . I want to do a 30 day road trip this summer. Camping is fun in small doses, LOL

I can not wait to read all about it! And glad you are back blogging!
