Road Trip Dreaming

My family LOVES traveling.
We could be gone 7 out of 7 days and be happy.  The past four years we haven't done any international travel for some reason (oh yeah, because we have to get 2 rooms and buy 5 airline tickets) but have been taking lots of awesome road trips.
My youngest is obsessed with those strange roadside attractions.  He watches movies about them, his favorite book is a coffee-table book on them.  He's convincing me to plan our summer trip based on some of the buildings we haven't seen yet.

Some fun trips we've taken in the past few years:
 When we drove to California we saw some crazy buildings & stuff.  We tried to go on as much of old Route 66 as we could.  This summer we're thinking about taking a similar trip east.  Just a "wing-it -have- fun -stopping -whenever" kind of road trip.  Always fun!

*Sorry I've been M.I.A. lately.  I've had sick kids and end of school things to keep me very busy so the bloggy world had to wait.

My childhood was filled with lots of cross country road trips because there were too many kids to afford to fly from one end of the country to the other to visit family. I have WONDERFUL memories of our roadtrips, and really miss them now.

You guys should make your own coffee table book.
