What Not To Forget On This Summers Road Trip!

The other day I was thinking about how it's getting warmer out and how I can't wait to take my daughter to the beach this summer.  This will be the first summer visit to the beach.  So naturally I though about which beach we would go to.  Right away Wildwood, NJ came to mind.  I haven't been there since I was 17, so I'd really love to go and take my little family for a road trip!

I love Wildwood, as a kid that is where we would take our family vacations.  It's a really great family resort with awesome amenities.  There is a huge beautiful beach, it's very clean and I always remember there being sandbars, so you would have your very own ocean swimming pool.  As a child we would collect shells and we would find huge full shells, which I collected, and still have!  Unlike most boardwalks, Wildwood has piers coming off of it.  Each pier has a different theme, full of rides, games, and one pier is a full size water park! 

Some key things I want to make sure to do with my toddler, that I did as a kid includes, taking a helicopter ride (when she's older!), watching the monster trucks, judging the huge sandcastles, playing the super fun shooting the tank ball game, and of course to enjoy the road trip!

The destination may be the main excitement builder, but the road trip itself should also be fun.  I want to make sure we enjoy our time driving together...and not fighting with siblings or one another.  So as far as road trips go I'd suggest several things:

*Pack plenty of snacks, music, and games!

*A proper GPS is a definite must, BE sure to check and see if the maps are up to date to avoid the "recalculating"  headache!

*"Create a boredom bag. Convert a hanging travel cosmetic case into a case full of fun and hang it from the seat back in front of the kids’ seats. Consider creating fun works of art with Twizzlers!"  -as suggested by Emily Kaufman at The Travel Mom. 

(Wowie!  Yes that is the Statue of Liberty made out of Twizzlers!)

Could Twizzlers really be the best "on-the-go" snack?  ...I'd say YES!  Let's see:

*Easy to share
*They don’t melt
*Taste great
*Many flavors
*low calories!
