First Summer Road Trip

I really look forward to Summer and taking road trips with the family. We love to get out not only exploring attractions around our city but also trips a bit longer that typically involve camping and enjoying the outdoors.

The road trip itch started hitting early this year and so I planned a trip that had us leave town the day after the kids finished school.

It ended up being a memorable experience, with many wonderful family memories made and of course a few bumps along the way.

I had come down with what I figured was a bit of a typical stomach bug 5 days before our trip and thought by Wednesday figured it had passed. But by Thursday, the day before we were to be leaving I started not feeling well again. Needless to say not much packing and prep got done that day. Still not feeling well that evening I made a quick trip to the walk in clinic before it closed to get some advice and was able to get some over the counter medication to make my symptoms go away.
