Our Modern Family



Thanksgiving Road Trip

2015-11-23 09.34.49 1This year we changed it up a bit, we drove to Virginia for Thanksgiving and will spend Christmas at home. It is always difficult to mentally prepare yourself for a 28 hour (round trip) road trip with two kids.

So I chose the logical solution to get ready…remodel the house the weekend before you leave. Seems like a good solution right?! Continue reading “Thanksgiving Road Trip”

We’re all gonna have so much freaking (edited) fun we’ll need plastic surgery to remove our gosh darn (again edited) smiles. You’ll be whistling ‘Zip-A-Dee Doo-Dah’ out of your bottom (ok, so maybe this isn’t the best quote for a family friendly blog)! I gotta be crazy! 

But as we embarked on our Thanksgiving vacation, I can only think we must be crazy. When did a 15+ hour one way car adventure sound like a great way to spend the Thanksgiving holiday? Continue reading “Here Comes The Griswolds”
