Our summer is looking a little different this year. We actually get to take a middle of the summer vacation. Thank you Jesus for providing the way.

I love spending time with friends and extended family but what I love most is spending time with my household. Just us in a small space enjoying God’s creation and each others company.

Don’t get me wrong there will be bickering, boredom cries, and many time outs, but it’s all worth it.
One way I am trying to beat some of the negative is with our road trip baskets. I created a kid version and an adult version. Mom and Dad’s need time outs too sometimes!
road trip basket items

I’ve included items to keep everyone busy:
note cards, pencils, pens,coloring books, bible, coloring books, crayons, highlighter

The best part is there is a little something personal:
 Coca-Cola and REESE’S Peanut Butter Cups

Have you seen the new REESE’S cups with fun words such as “Epic”, “Fab!”, “My Fav”, “Creative”, Dreamy”, etc. Hilarious right. {they are ONLY available at Walmart}

Last year’s Share a Coke campaign was such a success, Coke has brought it back bigger and better with 1,000 names featured on 20 oz bottles of Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, and Coke Zero bottles. You can find them in these large display bins located in the front of most Walmart stores. Walmart has the widest and most organized selection of Coca-Cola personalized 20 oz bottles.

I am working on making a a few more baskets so that everyone in our family has their own. It was fun finding our names on the bottles but more amusing picking out a secret REESE’S cup message to go with each name. I especially loved making my oldest queasy when I created this love bird pair for my husband and I.  The options are endless.
If you didn’t find your name or want to request a personalized bottle you can order them online.
