How is it August already? I had so many plans for this summer that didn't get checked off the list. I wanted to travel more with the boys. I wanted to organize my house. I wanted to refinish a piece of furniture. Oh well, there is always this Fall. 

Plus I can use an road trip as part of my 40 before 40 (stay tuned for that post soon.)




Any trip in the car with the boys can be exhausting. If I plan to be in the car for an hour or more, I need to plan ahead. Sam and Jay will be thirsty within 5 minutes of getting their seat belts on and pulling out of the driveway. Within twenty minutes they are hungry. By the time we hit the hour mark, they need a potty break. I am sure that a lot of other moms can understand my pain and frustration. The best part of a road trip is when the kids fall asleep. You can listen to your music, sing along and drive without distractions!



My must have item whenever I am in the car is an ice-cold cola. I will drink soda from the can or the bottle but I love fountain drinks. When we stop at Walmart for all the snacks on our list, we also take care of the most important thing for a road trip. THE CAR! The Auto Care Center will do a full oil change while you shop. This is the smartest thing you can do before you start driving. You don't want an unknown issue to leave you stalled on the side of the highway.

For cars with over 75,000 miles ask for Pennzoil® High Mileage Vehicle® oil. It will help your engine running clean and going strong. It is the #RoadTripOil of the Summer. From now until September 28, Pennzoil High Mileage oil change is on Rollback pricing to only $35.88

A few simple tips can make any road trip more enjoyable. 
Snacks! Tablets! Drinks! More Snacks! Chargers! 

However, do not bring too much stuff. You need to be able to safely drive your car. Do not block windows. Make sure you can use all of your mirrors. Keep children in seat belts.


Use my checklist for your next road trip.




Did you take a road trip this summer? Do you have plans for a road trip this fall? When is your next oil change due?
