A few days ago my husband and I surprised our kids with a cross country road trip (IT WAS AWESOME!) and the nine days just FLEW by. I took about 2,800 pictures. O.o Needless to say, I won’t be putting them all on my blog, LOL, but I plan to give you all the grand tour. Today, I’m offering the highlights, but no worries about missing the good stuff. We’ll take a closer look at each of these spots and on future #roadtrip installments throughout October. 🙂

Captions are under the pictures. Enjoy!

That’s it for today, but I’ll be back tomorrow with more. 🙂 Which of these pictures is your favorite? Have you been to any of these places, or would you like to go?
