We’re about to head on the ultimate roadtrip…to California this week for A Positively Baby Shower. We have to drive to get all the swag and goodies down, so I figured – this is the perfect time to highlight a few of our favorite – must have road trip items. It’s also a great time for y’all to throw all the good lucks my way as you know — two year old..will be in the car for 15 hours. 😉
First, we started with an oil change – it’s the first thing I do before I head on any sort of long road trip, as well as swinging by the tire shop for a quick air check and then loading up the car for the actual trip itself. For our oil changes, we use Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic, you can grab it on Walmart.com, which they’ve really improved lately and it’s great because you can pick it up curb side, in store or have it shipped to you. All about convenience baby! 😉
For in the car, a quick list of the must haves that we will be taking with us are:
- Snacks, so many snacks – not only for me, but Blake — I mean, snacks go a LONG way in a long car ride people.
- Movies. I usually pre load the iPad with tons of shows/movies for Blake to continuously watch while we drive
- Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic Oil, I keep one of these in the back of my car because well..I grew up with a Dad who was just prepared like that, so it’s rubbed off on me!
- Toys, lots and lots of toys, but remember to keep them small and easy to play with since your little will be in the car/carseat.
- Sunscreen – I like to throw this in the car as a just in case
- Sunnies, always pack an extra pair, just trust me on that one.
- A bag full of extra everything – diapers, clothes, wipes, snacks, water
- Diapers + Wipes (lots of extra wipes)
- Water bottles and cups. I actually like to throw in a case of water in the back of my car for a just in case!
