Photo Friday: Excess Baggage

We're usually light travelers, but something about the combination of the first real road trip in our new minivan, winter weather and a kitchen at our destination made me throw caution to the wind. And somehow, my shock and embarrassment at seeing how *much* there was once it was loaded on a baggage cart only spurred me to document our excess.

What is Photo Friday?

  • Post a travel photo on your site. It can be about any topic, as long as it is G-rated.
  • The focus of the post should be on your photo.
  • You don't need to be a professional photographer (I'm not), but do showcase your best work, and make it big enough to see well!
  • It's nice to include a few sentences about the photo, but it is not required.
  • Link back here so that your readers can see all the other great Photo Friday posts.

        Love it!! That makes me laugh. The toys and crafts will decline as the kids get older, but we still bring lots of milk wherever we go!

        This looks familiar! =) We just went on a road trip to ski and we had milk and a case of water too among other things.

        Looks fun:) We no longer travel light either. And we too have a *gulp* mini-van (and love it.)

        Hey, for three kids I'd say that's very respectable! ;-)

        LOL, my husband and I packed everything in our fridge into a cooler to take with us on a drive to South Padre last year. We figured that way we could unplug the fridge and save on electricity. It worked for lowering our electric bill, but we got really tired of lugging around the 35 pound cooler!

        Too funny! I'm pretty new to traveling with a child, and it's incredible how much STUFF we take along...I sometimes feel like I'm packing up my entire house! :-)
