After a big day in New Orleans, a travel day was just what this family needed. And it was a big travel day as we put in 418 miles. When you travel over 400 miles in one day, it is necessary to stop along the way. We stopped in Avery Island, LA to tour the McIlhenny Tabasco Factory. It was a great tour and the kids were so excited to each get 4 tiny bottles of sauce as free samples. They were cute bottles and they were so excited to taste test them. (We did let them taste them at dinner time and well, I wish I would of had my camera out! ) As for the tour, since we were there on a Saturday, the factory was not operating. It was still neat to see the machines, learn about the peppers and the island.
Our route took us just outside of Houston so we selected Yogi Bear Campground. Part of traveling with children is finding the perfect activity level. Yesterday was a fun day in New Orleans and today was a big travel day, so we know that tomorrow needs to be an active day again. This is why we chose Yogi Bear Campground in Waller TX which we arrived at late into the evening when the kiddos were sleeping.
