Most (okay all) of our friends thought we were crazy to pack our two boys & two dogs into our not nearly big enough car for two weeks, but it was so worth it! Our two weeks were filled with creating lifelong memories like the one pictured above at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival where my boys listened to amazing music like local musician Kermit Ruffins and ate delicious local food like Louisiana crawfish bread. It was also a good reminder of what Late July is all about - those special moments spent with friends and family that you didn't plan, but stay with you forever.
Everyone asks why I chose the name "Late July" and I always say that Late July is a not just a time of year, it's a feeling, a way of living life that means seizing and relishing those moments. So I'm officially advocating that everyone go on a family road trip this summer to create your own "Late July" moments. We'll even provide the road snacks, entertainment and carbon offsets for one lucky family!
To enter send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, post on Facebook or comment at www.latejuly.com to tell us where you'd like to take your family this summer or please share a special trip experience from the past. Our trip this year was my favorite, but we're hoping to get a few good ideas from you for next year. All submissions will get coupons, but our favorite will also WIN a Late July Beach Bag filled with at least $50 worth of Late July Organic Snacks, a $25 iTunes gift card and we'll also carbon offset your trip!
Full disclosure: we did have a few Wally World moments too, but that's part of what made it a great trip!
