Now, I was sort of nervous to embark on the 11 day trip with a baby. Let's just say even my packing lists had lists before we left! All ended up being well and I learned a few tricks along the way (Like how I'd prepare 3 bottles each morning with just the formula powder. I'd fill it with disposable water bottles to make a bottle when needed, then put the finished bottle in the cooler and wash them all at night. etc.). AJ and I prepared ourselves that we might have some restless nights sleep and Hank might be fussy in the car. Traveling with a child can be a challenge (there was an incident where both Hank and I had to change clothes due to the car seat blowout situation. Haha) But overall, He. Was. Amazing. He slept wonderfully each night and was such a champ. We were so pleased and thankful that we all 3 survived our first family road trip. We're raising a lil' traveler and I love it!
We hit the road on our anniversary and were only driving from Salt Lake to Boise that day. AJ and I used to power through all the way to Oregon in one day, but with Hank, we decided to take it easy. We hit the road around 7:00, made 3 stops, and arrived in Boise around 2:00.

We weren't able to check into our hotel yet so we put Hank in the stroller and walked around town. I love downtown Boise and we browsed in my favorite book store there and I got an afternoon pick me up from my fave coffee shop there (Java).
After dinner we walked to find an ice cream place our friend Kandi told us about called STIL (Sweet Things In Life). This place was a MUST VISIT in my opinion. It specializes in alcohol infused ice cream, and wine and beer floats. I had the hardest time deciding but ended up going with a blueberry lemon sorbet and champagne float. It was a good choice!
Thanks for following along with us.
