Okay you guys have heard me say it before… I LOVE my job.  Second grade is the best.  My school is the best.  But SUMMER IS BETTER!

Taylor and I can’t complain about both having teacher salaries when we have the summer off together to travel.  So far between us we’ve been to Kentucky Lake, St. Louis, upstate New York, DC, and home to Fulton!  We take full advantage of summer break, so I feel like we’ve been living out of our car (dogs included)!

Pennzoil Road Trip

My aunt has a lake house on Kentucky Lake, so my fisherman husband has been looking forward to this trip all year.  With stops, it was about a 7.5 hr trip but meeting up with friends and family there was worth the drive!

We enjoyed a week of completely unplugging.  It was refreshing to not have wifi OR phone service all week and spend time with family on the lake.

When it comes to summer road trips, Walmart is your 1-stop shop!  I dropped my car off at the Walmart Auto Care Center for the oil change while I grabbed snacks and a few items for our road trip to save some time and money.

In the past 3 years, Taylor and I have put over 75,000 miles on our car and it’s still going strong!  However, to keep the engine clean and running strong I switched to Pennzoil® High Mileage Vehicle® motor oil because it is specifically designed for new or late model vehicles with over 75,00 miles.  Our car is fairly new to have so many miles on it, so I’m willing to pay a little more to prevent leaks and reduce oil consumption.  Bonus- It’s on Rollback June 15- September 28 from 39.88 to 35.88.  Yay for saving $4… every little bit helps!

Pennzoil High Mileage

Pennzoil helps clean out sludge lesser oils leave behind.  If you have less than 75,000 miles, check out Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic Motor Oil with PurePlus™ Technology.

    Wow…sounds like you guys have been busy this summer! I hope you enjoyed your trip to upstate NY (that’s where I call home!). And the week at the lake without wifi actually sounds like a awesome way to relax. Thanks for sharing! #client
