Something I love about living in Surprise, Arizona is that an amazing road trip is as easy as packing up and heading out. Chewing gum, Check! Sandwiches, Check! Water, Check! Music, Check! Awesome destination, Check!! Looks like we have all that we need. I don’t ever go anywhere without gum. We would have plenty and find our #JuicyFruitFunSide at the same time with some great new Juicy Fruit flavors.

We are seriously into the dog days of summer. The kids are just about ready to go back to school. The heat has been sweltering. It has been crazy hot and all we have been doing is dreaming about a cool road trip. Just to paint a picture of what we are dealing with here, this is last weeks weather.

This week it was just more of the same hotness with some added humidity, yuck. Sedona, AZ is an ideal trip because it is cooler, beautiful, full of fun activities and only two hours away.

A quick trip to Walmart to stock up on supplies for the trip. In our local Walmart there was a live Demo going on with the new Juicy Fruit flavors. The gentleman running the demo was really awesome, he let the kids try different flavors and gave us some coupons. We picked up the New Juicy Fruit Fruity Chews in Juicy Fruit Original and Juicy Fruit Strawberry. We also grabbed a pack of Juicy Fruit Bubble Gum.

The brand new flavors were not on the isle yet, but were being added to the Gum/Candy isle and on select checkouts in Walmart.

Two hours later and we are in beautiful Sedona. The kids had fun hiking and playing outdoors. They tried to skip rocks but I think all they really did was plunk them into the water. We had a theme for our trip which was “Sharing”. This meant the kids had to share games, snacks and gum with each other.

I was surprised at how well they did. Even my teen got along with her brothers all day without complaints. On the way home we had a bubble blowing contest. I think I won, but of course the teen thought she did.

We even learned a little history!

The beautiful outdoors and cooler temps had a positive effect on everyone.

    My daughter loves Juicy Fruit, we’ll have to try these!

      We are just about due for a refill, I really like the original best. The kids like the strawberry best and it is already all gone.

    This looks like an awesome road trip! As an “East Coaster”, I’ve never had the opportunity to see the deserts of the southwest…I need to plan a trip out there! #client

      You should. It is really beautiful in the fall and winter when the temps are awesome. I am also in awe of the East Coast, since it is so different from here.

    My youngest loves Juicy Fruit! I started sweating just thinking about your weather forecast! Loved you pictures, too!

    • August 5, 2014 at 8:45 am

      Thanks! It has been pretty sweaty around here. haha.

    Wow, they already have strawberry juicy fruit? Didn’t know that!

    • August 5, 2014 at 8:43 am

      They sure do, and it’s yummy. I only got a few pieces before it disappeared. The culprits are two boys! 🙂

    I never thought about it, but I always buy gum before trips!! It looks like you had a great time!

    • August 4, 2014 at 7:22 pm

      Ha we do too! We went up to a lot higher elevation, I always chew gum when we do that. 🙂

  6. August 4, 2014 at 3:36 pm

    I would escape to cooler weather, too! A big container of gum is always a MUST for road trips! 🙂

      If it were for longer that would be great, but school starts soon so back to the heat we go.

    Sounds like a fun trip! My hubby and I are both obsessed with Juicy Fruit gum 🙂

  8. August 4, 2014 at 7:08 am

    Ouch to the weather! That is HOT!

      It gets to be too much by the time we get to the end of the summer. Can’t wait for October!

    looks like a fun trip!

    • August 4, 2014 at 5:51 am

      Thanks, we had a great time. The kiddos needed a change in scenery before heading back to school.

  10. August 2, 2014 at 8:13 am

    Oh, I used to love juicy fruit gum! Glad to hear they have something new and fun!

    • August 2, 2014 at 10:31 am

      I did get some in Original Flavor and it does bring back memories of being a kid. And getting in trouble in class for having gum. haha 🙂

    My grandma used to carry Juicy Fruit in her purse and would share it with us when we were little! Even now I can taste the Juicy Fruit as I remember and think of my sweet grandma. Thank you for the reminder! 🙂

    • August 2, 2014 at 7:25 am

      That is such a sweet comment. My grandma always had dinner mints and I love when I stumble upon them. Thanks for visiting. Have a great weekend.

        Grandmas are so great and will always have such a special place in our hearts! You have a great weekend too! 🙂
