Vlogging Workshop: Road Trip To Idaho

4.) Film yourself doing something (anything) with one of your kids.

We started off spring break with a weekend road trip to Idaho. We were excited to hit the road, but there is something so excruciating about the drive back. I was tempted to pull over to the side of the road and pitch a tent in a field of grass. I don’t know what it is about Eastern Washington, but you really don’t see fields of actual crops. Our farmers just grow grass apparently because that’s what was stretched before me for four hours of the drive. I’m partially joking, I actually really enjoy the country-like scenery…I would have appreciated an occasional corn stalk is all I’m saying. Maybe those don’t grow in “winter like conditions”, I don’t know, I only grow children.

Get a load of the recap of our trip and you might want to consider putting Couer D’Alene on your list of future stops!:

I’m featuring Jendi from Jendi’s Journal this week because she’s a fellow VEDA participant (vlogging everyday of April) and I love her organized approach to this challenge!:

    Thanks so much for featuring me! I missed one VEDA day so far this month, and I’ve got to record some more today – but I’m still going strong.

    P.S. Loved the kittens picture in the email!

    You should tell me if you ever come to Boise! We could meet!! (If you don’t think I’m a crazy stalker lol)

    You can go from Seattle to Spokane without hitting another city. It’s actually a little scary! There are exactly 9 turns from our house to my parents in CDA. It’s one giant long straight stretch of highway!

    But after seeing your picture of Mudgie moose on Instagram we decided to go out and walk the Mudgie and Millie trail and then go throw rocks in the lake at Higgins Point.

    I’ve always wanted to check out Couer D’ Alene! I remember those kind of road trips with my kids when they were young. They won’t let you know now, but when they get older they will talk about all the fun memories they had on that trip. Surprise!

    It may be the sad truth that you cannot afford your absolute dream home, but by changing around the particulars of a kit
    home, it is likely that you will be able to find a
    package that is suitable for your budget as well as your family.
    The Active Radon test device can indicate the
    actual amount of radon concentration that pervades in your
    home but requires the use of electrical power in order to monitor the presence of radon gas in real time.
    Kit homes are growing in popularity in Australia as high quality construction materials and design varieties have become available.

    Carol is absolutely right. They remember, and treasure, those trips more than you know.

    And yes, we have a 9 hour car trip coming up with a total of FIVE people in the car. I’m not looking forward to it.
