That Time The GoPro Turned Our Road Trip Into A Photoshoot

In the past 3 weekends, Parker, Jenny, and I have spent 28 hours in the car together. That's a lot of car time. I wrote a post in December about how to survive holiday road trips without punching your significant other in the face, and those tips can absolutely be applied year round as well. Parker genuinely is my best friend, and we love quality time together, but at a certain point, you just want out of the car and fast. 

We did play our favorite car game quite a bit, which consists of one person thinking of someone you both know and the other asking yes/no questions until they figure it out. However, once I chose my sister's dog and Parker decided that wasn't playing by the rules, that game was done. When I chose our nephew pup, it was at least in the ball park of being an acceptable answer. When he chose a water bottle as the someone we both know, the game was over as we knew it. 

So, once we proved to be too immature for the car games, we turned to an unlikely source for entertainment. Parker brought his GoPro along for the ride during this last trip, and the car ride suddenly reached a new level of awesome. Who knew the GoPro was so entertaining? We set it to snap pictures of us every 30 seconds to see if it caught anything funny, and we had a great time posing for the "camera". This must be what celebrities feel like, no?
 
Excuse the pillows. Back problems = ride in the car with pillows. High maintenance, party of one. 
 

This is Parker's nervous face because I'm behind the wheel. Jenny clearly isn't bothered by it. Girl power.

Butttt we switched drivers anyway. Fine by me!

Danger



I guess I was boring him. I've always thought of it as a treat to get to listen to me talk to my twin sister on the phone.

So much happiness. Why? Because we are finally stopping for dinner. Aka, the best part of the road trip is upon us!

Excuse the face, but this is the cost of getting to be the passenger. You have to feed the driver. Jenny's got her eye on the prize.

I wanted Taco Bell.
 
Well, that was fun :)

So clearly, we've lost it. These are desperate times, people.

How do you stay sane on the road?

By the way, since your moving to Virginia, you'll be a little closer to me! And I've always wanted to go visit VA beach again. Such an awesome place. =D

I love all these photos! Looks like y'all had a blast. I'm glad that I'm not the only one who takes tons of pictures!!

Hana R said...

My husband wants a Go Pro for our anniversary. After seeing this post, I've decided it's a must have! lol.

Emily Stewart said...

Hahaha! I like the progression of the center console...empty, M&M's, M&M's and Almond Joy and then Whataburger for the win! Also, Jenny is like "I can haz cheezburger!".

PS: Do you HATE how the passenger side in the CRV doesn't have an arm rest? It drives me nuts and I constantly ask Ryan if we can send it back to the manufacturer. High maintenance party of 2 apparently.

Laura {happily ever} Parker said...

Ha this is pretty funny :) 28 hours is no bueno. Book on tape would be my route!

Lauren Zimmerman said...

HAHA these are too good for words!! Hours in the car always get us all on edge too, he hates the way up drive through long island, but refuses to drive himself, and I can't stand his city driving. We pretty much want to kill each other after a trip, but I never thought to take pictures of the progression to crazy town!!

Miranda Pridgeon said...

This is a brilliant idea! Such great photos you got!!

Ashley said...

That is awesome! Y'all are too funny.

Kallie @ But First, Coffee said...

Haha this is so cute! I love Jenny always poking her head through! Before we moved closer to home my bf and I (and our two pups) used to spend a lot of car time, too!

These pictures are so much fun! Makes me want a GoPro. Y'all are absolutely adorable.

Bailey @ Becoming Bailey said...

I am an avid Snapchatter while driving. Terribly unsafe, but at least it keeps me from falling asleep!

Katherine Newsom said...

So funny! I've heard about the GoPro from quite a few people lately and really need to look into it! Such a neat idea to take pictures during a road trip that way! I've seen it on headbands too , perfect for something like ziplining!

Amy said...

soooo cute!

I have spent some time this morning reading your blog (stalking!:)) and love this post! My husband is in the Air Force and we spend a ton of time in the car driving from Michigan back home to Alabama to see family. I think we need to get a GoPro and try this! lol. I think it would be a lot of him screaming at other drivers and me sleeping!
