Summer Road Tripping

My favorite things about summer 
1; it's daylight later
2; schedules are pretty much zero
3; vacation! 
We leave on Thursday for our annual pilgrimage to Dauphin Island Alabama. This will be our fifth year! Obviously we adore it! It is so laid back, honestly, it is beach and a few restaurants. But more on  that when we return! 

Packing for said vacation, for five people and a baby. Augh! We traded in our Volkswagen last fall for a Honda, love the Honda but we traded in our storage space under the seats. Boo. So I got creative! Instead of bulky suitcases, I packed us in three 58 qt Rubbermaid containers. Two people to a container! It worked beautifully. We are taking our time on the way down and stopping at a hotel, those clothes will be in a duffel bag to take in. Everything else, including toiletries, in the Rubbermaid. It is looking to be much easier looking for things, carrying in and we have SO much space.  I'm pretty excited! What we have are three Rubbermaid containers on the bottom for clothes, one more 58 qt container for supplies for the house, a small container for toiletries, stroller and first aid supply box. So much room, and we still have to add in that duffel and our cooler for the lunch stop! 



 


 

Full vacation post in about two weeks! Until then, peace out!
