Roadtrip Playlists

This Sunday morning, the kiddos and I are hopping in the (rental) car, rolling down the windows, turning up the tunes, and heading for the homeland. 12 blissful? hours later, we should be rolling in to Michigan for two weeks of cousins, cookouts, and chaos.

Always important in preparing for a roadtrip is creating mixtapes. Mixtapes must set the proper ambiance, and the best mixtapes will walk the fine line between soothing the savage "Are we there yet?" beast and energizing the "I've been staring at the road for far too long" doldrums. This time around, the kids each made their own mix.

Chloe's Mix
Don't Tell Me - Madonna
If I was a Rich Girl - Gwen Stefani
Let's Get it Started - Black Eyed Peas
Hey Ya - Ludacris
No Air - Jordin Sparks
Bleeding Love - Leona Lewis
Breakin' Up - Rilo Kiley
Jungle Gym - Jack Johnson
Through to Sunrise - Girlyman

Jonathan's Mix

And it burns, burns, burns - like a ring of fire.

I can't listen to that song anymore without thinking of childbirth. :) Darn pre-natal class with too much information.

Have a great trip & welcome home again.

Gotta respect Johnny. He's one of the best to pop in on road trips.
