[AD] @littlehousebigalaska & I were short on time yesterday so grabbed a quick picnic lunch and set it up in the back of the car by a park full of redwoods. Yes, the @mazdausa cx-9 is that roomy. Just fold the third row seating down. Then we headed out to @visitenumclaw and visited their "main" street, which is full of cute shops and dining, including dinner at @kellysrestaurantandlounge was absolutely amazing. Those shrimp & grits.....😍. #enumclaw #visitwashington #shrimpandgrits #drivemazda @safeway @starbucks @swissgear #dinner #beautifulcuisine #comfortfood #PNWFoodieRoadTrip #womenintravel #rtkbtravels #travel #travelmore #traveladdict #seetheworld
"With friends like these, who needs anemones?" We were given 4 passes to @newenglandaquarium to share our experience and we met up with @austin.millerb & @indpndnt2001 for the afternoon. It was busy but we saw it all and didn't quite melt in the process. It's a wee bit warm in the aquarium but at least they don't have a live coral reef...we learned it would be much hotter if they did. Coral reefs need lots of sun. #travel #rtkbtravels #familytravel #daytripper #travelwithkids #aquarium @visitboston #boston #newengland #newenglandlife #newenglandbound #vacation #summervacation #fish #anemone #color
Look at the surprise mail Mott's sent us. Fun healthy snacking ideas. (And guess where our next #rtkbtravels day trip will be...watch and see! #snacking #healthysnacking
First time she ever scooped up living things at the beach. That put a halt to sandcastle building for a while. - Wallis Sands Beach @visitnh #nhbeaches #ocean #beaches #daytrip #rtkbtravels #travel #familyday
This is where I draw the line. No pirates' "life" for me.

I used to love tunnels...they are so fascinating....then Princess Dianna...and I was petrified of them. Now I have mixed feelings. I love this one...it's just the right size and it's so pretty. #rtkbtravels #travel #roadtripping #travelusa #travelwithkids #connecticut #arewethereyet #toomanymiles #familytravel
We took a whirlwind drive on #RoadTripwithRainier through @grandtetonnps. Stopped for a hike but decided the bear sign was a bit too ominous since we had no way to fend one off....2 parents, 3 kids. But the views were stunning. So ready to hit the road again. #mountains #roadtrippin #rtkbtravels #traveladdict #Travelmore #travelwithkids #theroadlesstraveled #travel #travelstagram #travellingfoodies #seetheworld @visitwyoming
I spy with my little eye...I have a kiddo who sees the little things and found campmate last week at @smc_we_know_camping. Can you see the little guy? Our campsite was beautiful and quiet and even though it was a bit early in the season the weather was perfect for our trip to @sfnewengland & camping out in our @colemanusa but as much as we love our tent we're out growing it a bit and it's time to go shopping for a "boys' tent". And not a moment too soon! Youth Camp snuck up on us and we are heading to Lancaster, PA next weekend so the guys can go to that while we girls camp with my family. Needing that tent now! Do you have fun memories of camping out with kids or as a kid? #camping #nature #campsite #campingwithkids #roadtripping #roughingit #travelwithkids #travel #familytravel #rtkbtravels #newengland #visitma @visitma #tentcamping #vacation #summergoals
The trick to camping meals is prepping ahead where you can. Sealing meat in @foodsaver bags, washing and dicing veggies, and adding paper towel to veggies that need a barrier against moisture. Makes the evening meal so much easier. #camping #campfire #cookingwithfire #rtkbtravels #kebabs #foodprep #prepahead #veggies #produce #travelwithkids #familytravel #roadtripping #travel #vacation
So much in one day. Y'all can see a lot in my stories but these 3 are my real day enders. 1) Persian Chicken & Vegetables from my friend @familyspice new cookbook. Delish! 2) The first s'mores of the season. 3) Some of my trusty must-haves for roadtripping - my fire starter, driver and love, a @colemanusa tent, & our @chevrolet. #travel #familytravel #travelwithkids #traveladdict #camping #roadtripping #rtkbtravels #chevy #campfire #tenting #travelmore @visitma #visitma #newenglandlife #smores #kebabs #cookingwithfire
[Hosted media day with @sfnewengland. ] Love this girl. And this girl loves Batman...and me. She refuses to get a picture with "someone she doesn't know" and that's ok.

Where will the road take us next? Well, actually.....2 days in Springfield, Massachusetts next week, a week camping in Pennsylvania, (hopefully) a weekender in Tennessee, a couple days in the Finger Lakes this autumn.... LOVING the bargain section of @target right now with all its #camping & #roadtripping themes. You can see a couple kid-friendly travel activities in my stories today. #rtkbtravels #familytravel #summer #vacation #travel #roadtrip #travelmore
One of my favorite tacos of @thehippo_nh Taco Tours was this red lentil taco from @matbahcuisine minus a few pickles and jalapeños. Taco Tour is such a fun annual community event and a great opportunity to spend the evening with friends and try new restaurants and flavors. #tacotour #tacos #manchesterfoodies #manchesternh #delish #handheldfood #lentils #mediterraneanfood #comfortfood #feedyoursoull #feedfeed #rtkbtravels #newengland #tradition #foodfestival
Flashback to birthday lunch. I could eat Cambodian food every day if it's all as good as @phnompenhsandwich. So sad this one is 1.5 hours away from us. If you're ever in Lebanon, NH you have got to grab some takeout there. Try EVERYTHING on the menu.

{sponsored} How fitting was it that this shuttle was parked in front of the Hampton Inn in Philly when we visited to do some work for @hiltonhotels a couple weeks ago? Check out my newest article with the scoop on our favorite things to do in #Philly and our stay at Hampton Inn Philadelphia International Airport. #travel #familytravel #travelwithkids #roadtrip #righthere #hiltonhotels #hiltonhonors @visitphilly @visitpa #visitphilly #ilovephilly #Philly #vacation #hotel #rtkbtravels #travelpa #travelstagram #traveladdict #travelmore #travelblogger #travelwriter #travelbug #roadtrippers #longweekend #getaway #traveltheworld
Hit Center City Philly and all traffic flows around City Hall. It creates a bit of confusion and a jam up especially for out of towners but oh, it's such a majestic building. I love hitting a red light during the day so I can appreciate it or heading north on Broadway at night. I have so many pictures over the years with my favorite being nights where the city lights create a pathway toward it and fog shrouds the view just the slightest bit. Philadelphia will always be one of my favorite cities and nothing has reminded me of that more than writing articles for visitors who book @hiltonhotels stays in Philly. I can't share one of them with you but can't wait until the one is published that I can share. If you want to see the first article, totally book a "Long Weekender" package to Philly and they will share it with you. #travel #righthere #familytravel @visit_pa #visitpa #visitphilly #rtkbtravels #roadtrip #city #love #traveladdict #travelmore #explore #vacation #vacationinspiration #seetheworld #travelblogger #travelwriter #roadtrippin #travelstagram
Sometimes you just need to get out of town. Headed toward the ocean and found fresh air, blue skies, and an IPA I like @greatrhythmbrewing.

We've been wanting to try @punk_burger for a few years now and finally got there. Amazing. I had the Cuban burger with fried pickles, ham, and brown ale mustard cheddar, sweet potato fries, and a PB and Bacon Jam milkshake (yes. Interesting). Everything was delicious and the service was spot on. #eastpassyunk #eastpassyunkavenue #rtkbtravels #familytravel #vacation #burgers #milkshakes #foodstagram #comfortfood #visitphilly #visitpa @visitpennsylvania @visit_pa #foodietravel #travel #traveler #travelbug #explorer #travelusa #travelgram #traveladdict #travelmore
{Sponsored} Decaf coffee + hot cocoa mix from the drink bar at the Hampton Inn, a @hiltonhotels. Good way to wind down after a long day. It was a good day but a hard emotional one too.

Feeding 5 people on the road can get a little pricey - even when it's fast food. The other day I told the kids we would get @chickfila for lunch today and a day later my daughter asked if we could make salads at home and just get French fries and nuggets for the salad like we did when we went to NYC around Christmas. I gladly said yes. It's so much cheaper, it's healthy, and this child who fought me over eating salad for 3+ years of her life ASKED FOR SALAD. Picky kid mamas, there is hope. Keep at it. #rtkbtravels #chickfilamoms #lunch #familytravel #familyroadtrip #travel #roadtripping #salad #chicken #eatmorchikin #visitpa @visitma #worcester #togethercalled2018
Ever have a blast from the past that almost knocks the wind out of you? On our road trip last year we drove through an area that holds some tumultuous memories for me. A time when life turned upside down again and again....for what seemed to never end but was only about 4 years. Then when I was 15 we moved from this stunning area in PA late one summer to Upstate NY, which was in the middle of a drought. Is it any wonder I hated it at first glance when I had a view of the Blue Ridge Mountains every day before we moved? I remember sitting on the front porch crying, these words running through my head. "How can I help you say goodbye? It's okay to hurt. It's okay to cry...." Even driving through these mountains 20 years later brought back bittersweet memories but the good memories are there too - like camping in this area with our crazy big family. #rtkbtravels #roadtripping #countryroads #familytravel #travel #theroadlesstraveled #familyroadtrip #newenglandtopnw #roadtripwithrainier #roadtrippers #memories #bluemountains @visitpennsylvania #visitpa #mountains #snapshot #roadtrip #vacation #sunset
Planning your family vacation? Don't plan to see it all or do it all. Last summer we logged 8000 miles in 18 days. It was the trip of a lifetime I wouldn't trade for anything, but it was also full of stress and long hours some days. By the end of the trip there were some things we all decided to just zip through and we were okay with that. @badlandsnps , was one of them. It's such a gorgeous place to drive through and I'm sure it's just as fun to hike. Make sure you add it to your vacation goals list. #nationalparkpass #nationalpark #roadtripwithrainier #familytravel #roadtrippin #familyroadtrip #vacation #vacationdreaming #badlandsnationalpark #badlands #skyformiles #seetheworld #newenglandtopnw #rtkbtravels #adventureawaits
Oh, to be back on the road. I could also go for the warm weather. We didn't have time to do much in Minnesota because we were traveling through late evening and early morning, so we took a couple scenic routes to see different sculptures. #roadsideamerica #roadsideattraction #travelamerica #usaroadtrip #newenglandtopnw #minnesota #theroadlesstraveled #scenicbyway #roadtripping #rtkbtravels #familytravel #travel #seetheworld #familyroadtrip #vacation #sculpture
My mom and I had such a lovely lunch at @tecawc today. 1) Calamari Salad 2) Caprese Salad 3) Lasagna 4) Salmon Risotto with Zucchini, Summer Squash, and Tomatoes 5) Not pictured: Cannoli and Tiramisu #italian #restaurant #westchester #risotto #lasagna #calamari #bruschetta #momanddaughterday #lunchdate #rtkbtravels @visit_pa #visitpa #christmasinpa #travel #diningout #lunch #seriouseats #feedyoursoull #noleftovers #trynewthings #eater #foodporn

Heading into the middle of nowhere NH mountains in our first real snow of the year to get to Dave's work Christmas party for our first overnight without kids in a year (although last year's week away from kids wasn't really vacation since we were beyond stressed about moving and no place to live and Dave was working). #rtkbtravels #christmasparty #nightout #datenight #visitnh #newenglandsnow #travel #weekendgetaway #snow #christmas #winter #winterwonderland
Our friend Loukmane, who we were visiting in NYC, treated us to this amazing meal at Chez Jacob, a French African restaurant at 300 W133rd St in NYC. The second picture shows the menu. I ordered the dish at the top of the lunch menu - minus the egg, which a kid added to my plate. #restaurant #frenchafricancuisine #africanrestaurant #dinner #rice #fish #jolofrice #bonappetit #delish #foodietravel #foodie #nycchristmas #nycweekend #iloveny #feedyoursoull #flavor #ethniccuisine #feedfeed #food52 #seriouseats #eater #rtkbtravels
My daughter spied the baguette in a white paper bag this morning and immediately picked it up and took a sniff. "Oh daddy! Is this NY bread? And did it come from that bakery down the street?" My girl! She was the only who saw the little bakery down the street from where they parked last night. They had dropped me off to check in and gone around a couple blocks to find parking. P.S. picture 2 is the blueberry cheese danish he snuck back to me. The kids woke up while he was gone so he snuck it in the bedroom for me, haha. #breakfast #nycbakery #bread #bakery #baguette #danish #cheese #airbnb #iloveny #rtkbtravels #foodie #nycweekend #roadtrip #familytravel #lazyweekend #vacation #seetheworld

No matter what time of year you visit the Finger Lakes region of NY it's gorgeous with plenty of things to do - from wineries to cheese factories there's plenty to fill your itinerary. ⠀ ⠀ This is the view just down the street from the inn we were hosted at when we went on the #UndeniablyDairy #NYDairyTour17 2 weeks ago with @AmericanDairyNE .⠀ ⠀ #hosted
Dinner at @comperelapin. Dessert at @borgnerestaurant. The best dessert I ate last week was this destructed key lime pie at Borgne in NOLA. #dessert #keylimepie
Have you ever tried red currants? My kids say they taste like sweet tarts. Would you believe we found @hbf_international currants in a tiny grocery outside @grandtetonnps while road tripping? I also found them at @pmarketingassoc #FreshSummit where they were a #TeamFreshSummit sponsor.
Bit chilly in Boston this evening by the water but 2 "little" girls loved collecting shells and rocks. Mine also enjoyed looking ridiculous as she screamed and ran at seagulls, trying to scare them to death. #rtkbtravels #boston #beach
I do love a good skyline photo op. The lake is looking rather tropical in Chicago today. Had a lovely layover in Chicago Midway Airport earlier. Now onward to @visitneworleans for a couple days in my kind of candy store - @pmarketingassoc. #FreshSummit #TeamFreshSummit #sponsor

One of the best things I did to prepare for our road trip is set up our @colemanusa tent multiple times so we could set it up faster on the road. Every minute counts when you're setting up camp if you want to enjoy your evening...or beat the rain. #rtkbtravels #roadtripping
This boy loves to hike. While his asthma doesn't hold him back too much the reality is I often feel guilt because mine does. This was a shorter .5 mile hike I was able to handle at @yellowstonenps this summer. I believe this was Wraith Falls. #rtkbtravels #hiking
We didn't get a chance to visit #milwaukeeart but the building itself was a work of art. It looks like a stingray. #visitwisconsin #rtkbtravels
That gorgeous cloud let loose a small quick rain shower while we raced through the first grocery shop we had done in over a week, hoping we would be able to cook over a fire that night. Blowout Campground just over the Wyoming border in Idaho ended up being one of our most relaxing camping experiences even with a bear box on site. It also set the tone for the next day that we just didn't stress over what we didn't get to see but crammed in all we could. #rtkbtravels #camping
Gorgeous rock formation in South Dakota right before we came upon someone stopped in the middle of the road to take a picture of yet another bison. I'm glad the herds are plentiful but seriously, we got stuck behind people who would have no thought of who was behind them and abruptly stop for a photo op. #visitsd #rtkbtravels
Sometimes we miss some of the best places because they're too close to home. Heading into the White Mountains of New Hampshire. What's your area's treasure? #visitnh #rtkbtravels
@yellowstonenps is so much more than Old Faithful. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad we saw it but the rest of the park had so many treasures we never heard of before. #rtkbtravels #everykidinapark
You can't tell from the picture but there was a nasty drizzly rain here but I had to get out and catch a shot of Sheepeater Cliff in @yellowstonenps for you all. #rtkbtravels #roadtripwithrainier #thenationalparkspass
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away....I've followed the journey of our sponsor @rainierfruit gala apple from the orchard to bobbing in a quick bath in the packing shed to being packed for shipping to @wholefoods where they are marked 1.49 lb.

Recipe & Giveaway Sponsored by @RainierFruit ⠀ ⠀ Blueberries make a fantastic road trip snack but they also play double duty in this tasty campfire recipe that can also be roasted in the oven.

Iowa in a sentence. If it wasn't corn it was soybeans...or wind turbines...or cows. #rtkbtravels #agriculture
If you ever have a chance to eat at Montana Club in Kalispell I recommend the burgers and Moscow Mules. Great service too. #rtkbtravels #foodiefinds
We drove through lots of mountains but the only places we saw insane mountains like this were @GlacierNPS , Idaho, and northern Wyoming...you know those ridiculous mountains we drove through to cross from Wyoming to Montana. This wasn't the mountain I drove, which makes it simply breathtaking and amazing versus terror inducing.⠀ ⠀ #rtkbtravels #mountains
I find bridges so fascinating and we get the opportunity to see all sorts when road tripping. This drawbridge near NYC is one of my favorite. ⠀ #rtkbtravels #bridges
Egg sandwiches are a great way to get a nice healthy breakfast without wasting too much time in the day when travelling. Check out the blog for these Roasted Salsa Egg Sandwiches sponsored by The National Onion Association and Michigan Onion Growers. We wrapped them in parchment paper then hit the road for a second glimpse of Mount Rushmore. #rtkbtravels #OnionsfrMI
You don't want to see one of these on the middle of nowhere Montana. It means you could sit there for half an hour then wonder what the purpose was. Perhaps big equipment exiting a newly harvested field? This was just south of Vida, MT which doesn't have a whole lot. Even the general store Hattie Big Sky would have frequented was moldering away but the 2 churches in the book stand there - 1 Protestant, 1 Catholic. #rtkbtravels #visitmontana
Endless fascination. Craggily tops and rounded, steep plunges and gentle inclines, layers of color, golden yellow strawlike grass that can hide prairie rattlesnakes. The @badlandsnps are a thing of dangerous beauty. I still can't believe we were there. #rtkbtravels #nationalpark
One of my favorite snacks on our road trip were these cherries from sponsor @RainierFruit. They were the largest cherries I've seen all summer. We missed seeing the end of cherry season by just a few days but we got to walk through the equipment that cleans them and preps them for the journey to your table. ⠀ #rtkbtravels #RoadtripwithRainier
Perfect kind of weekend breakfast. Sunday morning 3 weeks ago we were eating breakfast at this small diner called Jan's Place in Alexandria, MN. We had planned to visit Runestone Museum but a Sunday late open would have messed up plans for the next day so we visited Big Ole, the Viking, and hit the road. ⠀ #rtkbtravels #dinerfood
This well was outside a real deal soddie (sod house) at Pioneer Village. We were able to talk about how Pa sent a candle down the well before he went down to dig to make sure there were no dangerous gases in the Little House on the Prairie audiobook we listened to on our road trip. ⠀ #rtkbtravels #learning
"Petting zoos" make great stops on family vacation. This farm in Lancaster, PA had a sign telling us about these "Jacobs Sheep". They can have black or lilac spots and get 4-6 horns. I wouldn't get in their way but they sure are pretty.⠀ #rtkbtravels #farm
We love travelling and are already planning our next road trip but there truly is no place like home. We've been here 1 year now and it's a different feeling to come home to a house you own. ⠀ #rtkbtravels #home
You can make vegan meals over a campfire just as easily! I'm still recipe testing buy a similar recipe featuring roadtrip sponsor @RainierFruit is coming soon! I could eat this meal every day!⠀ #RoadtripwithRainier #campfiremeals
We dubbed @oscarsonpierce 'The Big O' best burger of #rtkbtravels road trip 2017.⠀ The details: 8 oz. Black Angus burger w/ chipotle jack, smoked gouda, hickory bacon, chorizo, fried onions, jalapeños, and a side of house guacamole.⠀ #burgers
A thunderstorm then the late hour chased away the people and we enjoyed the serenity of @mountrushmore_nm after the rain stopped. It was surreal and this will always be the perfect "time freeze" for me. The rain made the presidents look like they were crying. ⠀ #rtkbtravels #government
