This photo makes me happy! Not too hard to figure out why, since it’s a warm, sunny beach. Virginia Beach, to be precise, and our home for the next five days! To be followed by a few more days in Williamsburg…AND the weather forecast looks AMAZING!
Virginia Beach, we're on our way!
It’s time for another GBOGH Road Trip! Please follow along for frequent updates on our Facebook page or on Twitter, hashtag #GBOGHRoadTrip.
On our itinerary:
World’s largest Wegmans supermarket in Fredericksburg, VA
World’s longest stretch of pleasure beach, Virginia Beach
The world’s largest living history museum (Colonial Williamsburg)
We’ll also be tracking down a giant gorilla, a giant statue of Neptune, and a giant sea serpent.
And … still up for discussion …the world’s tallest dive coaster at Busch Gardens. Early polls suggest that 0 out of 4 GBOGH family members are actually willing to ride this coaster, because of our shared “chicken” gene. To be continued…
In the meantime, we’re celebrating summer and the start of “Road Trip Season” with a fun GIVEAWAY!
Hullabaloo, an award-winning kid’s music duo, has just released their eighth album, Road Trip. There are 13 family car travel-inspired songs with traces of twang, funk, rock, folk and blues. Such an entertaining break from sappy children’s music! We test drove the CD on our trip to Rochester, and I cracked up when I heard the lyrics to the title song, which mentions the world’s largest ball of twine!
I have two copies to give away to residents of the U.S. or Canada! Want to enter to win? Just sign up to receive our e-mail notifications (see upper right hand corner). If you’re already a subscriber, just comment below and give me your funniest family road trip story, or share your road trip plans for this summer!
Two winners will be chosen — one randomly, and one based on how much I like your road trip memory! You’ll be notified on Monday, June 6th, and will be asked to provide a mailing address.
