Summer Road Trip Extravaganza

Megan and I are going on a Mother/Daugter/Senior Road Trip Extravaganza! (McKenna helped Megan redesign her blog. Go look. It's gorgeous!)

It's a long story but to make it short, my parents are selling me their Jeep Cherokee for the price of one homemade butterscotch pie.

This is not THE Jeep. It is A Jeep. But you get the idea.

My new Jeep will make me the coolest grandma on the block. Both Carter and Rayder say so, so it must be true.


I had planned to have the Jeep shipped out to me. I thought I had it all lined up. Then the shipper calls me up after two weeks and says they can't do it for the price originally quoted. So I did the math . . .

. . . and realized I could make the trip myself for half the price. But I didn't want to go alone. So, who's crazy enough to do it with me—and think it's FUN? Yep. Megan.

We're flying out to Kentucky on Monday, June 9th, then driving my Jeep back to Utah. I promised my DH that we'd be back no later than Sunday, June 15th. But I didn't want to rush the trip because, well, who knows what adventures Megan and I might find.


And to make it even more fun—we're turning this trip into a BLOGGY EXTRAVAGANZA because, like, what else do I have to do with all my spare time?

We'll be asking for YOUR help in choosing our route, creating a road trip music mix, and finding cool places to visit.

AND we'll be giving away daily prizes during the trip—one of them worth over $100!

Stay tuned. More to come very, very soon . . .
