Vacation is around the corner

We will be taking a trip to Louisiana in a few weeks.

We will be staying for 5 days to visit with family. If I am remembering correctly we will be about an hour from Baton Rouge. My husband's paternal family all lives relatively close to each other in that area.  The boys will get to meet their cousin's for the first time. Heck, I still haven't met one of my hubby's cousins yet after almost 10 years of marriage. LOL   Mr. Kiwi will be traveling with us. Apparently we like to make things difficult- traveling a long distance with not just young kids but throw in a dog that doesn't love car rides too.  Haha

After we leave there we will be meeting with my father and his sister in Mobile, AL.  I haven't seen my aunt since I was about 5 or so. I am excited to be able to see her and have her meet my boys. Then we will follow my dad back to his city in the panhandle. We will spend the afternoon with him and his girlfriend then we will complete the long drive home.  It is amazing to me that it is 6 hours to Miami from here, yet 6 hours up the panhandle to him.

I've been making phone calls and getting information on various things for the trip. Thankfully we found a website that lists animal friendly restaurants for when we are in Mobile. Now I just need to google to see how far off the interstate they are.  Traveling with a pooch complicates things but as long as we plan ahead  we should be ok. I hope!  LOL

 My last vacation was over a year ago to attend/be in my sister's wedding.  I need a break!

  1. I'm beginning to travel with my pooch as well! Do you find it easy to find restaurants that are animal friendly? Hotels seem to give more information on their website. Have a nice vacation!
