Last month we decided to take a road trip to Palm Springs. We packed the car to the brim- it's impossible to travel light with a 6-month old and a 3-year old- and off we went. Our third row was folded down to accommodate the pack-n-play, stroller, baby carrier, diapers, suitcases, snacks, food...the list goes on. And it's funny, because before I became a parent I didn't think too much about the drive. The concept of driving was simple- just get there. But now with two little ones my mind is always on safety, and that's why I love having such peace of mind with our tires. When you think about it, the tires on your car really are the foundation of your travel. They're getting you there, they're the base, they're between you and the road. And as a Mom, I need that foundation to be solid.
The drive to Palm Springs went by quickly, minus the two bathroom breaks, one lunch break and a Cabazon Dinosaur break. But we got there. And of course the bathing suits immediately came out and all four of us were splashing around in the pool before we knew it. We spent the rest of the weekend driving around, seeing the sights, and eating good food. And even though we had to break for naptimes and snacktimes and potty breaks all day long, we wouldn't have it any other way. This new kind of road trip sure is different than the kinds we used to take, but as far as adventures go, this kind is a lot more fun.
This is part one in a series of posts about road trips I'll be doing with Nitto. If you have a moment, pop over and check out the tires they put on our car- Hank and I both give them two (four?) huge thumbs up. And like I said above, I love them because I know I can really count on them to be safe. I'll be working with Nitto over the next couple of months, and next time I'll be breaking down some of the planning and checking off lists we do before a trip, and sharing photos from where we're headed next. Can't wait!
