We're heading to NY this weekend, too! But I'm nowhere near as organized as you are. I love your bin idea. Enjoy!


Have a fun trip! What a perfect sandwich. Will have to try this!


I love the idea of having a bin swap for the kiddos. We used to drive a lot when we lived in Canada because we lived 8 hours from the nearest major city and 9 hours from my parents. Lot's of road trips then. But, we haven't owned a car since we moved to Norway, until this week! So, there will be lot's of trips in our future I'm sure (we feel a little car deprived.) :)

I hope you have a great trip!

Hi Cheri - Where did you live in Canada?  Eight hours is quite a far distance away!  What took you to Norway?  Enjoy your new car...

Food's definitely important. It has to be extra special to highlight the fun of the whole road trip experience, right? A good meal also gives everyone that energy to enjoy the sights and sounds during the long drive.
