The Contigo AUTOSPOUT® Sheffield Stainless Steel Water Bottle (pictured left, in-action with baby) is by far, the best water bottle that I have ever owned. Having worked with Contigo as a Blogger Partner over the past few months, I've had a chance to experience many of their water bottles and travel mugs (I have one with me at all times), but the Sheffield is special: it keeps drinks cold for up to 20 hours, which is insane. In fact, during our own travels, the family has been arguing over who gets to use it... then we end up sharing. In the spirit of giving, and the Summer Road Trip, Contigo and The Rock Father are going to hook one lucky reader up with a FOUR-PACK of Sheffield bottles... that way no one in your family will have to be left out (unless, of course, there's more than four of you... in which case, you can buy more here, and use code CONTIGOTRIP to save 20%!).
Memorial Day Weekend: For many, it's the official start of the Summer Season. It's a big travel weekend, and as some families pile into the car for their first major road trip of the year, the soundtrack for adventure can be called into question. For those looking for some fresh, family-friendly jams, The Rock Father has you covered with a jumping off point to explore some of the finest music that the Kindie world has to offer. 13 Top Kindie Artists have contributed to this limited-time FREE DOWNLOAD - a Summer Music Playlist to help you rock the ride. It's available until June 1 (after which it will become "streaming-only"), so grab these tracks now before you head out on the highway...
The weather here in Northern Illinois is unseasonably warm today. As the temperature neared 70 degrees this afternoon, our family worked to put up the outside Christmas lights while thinking about the road ahead. With the Holiday Season in full-effect, we'll be putting a lot of miles on the car as we catch up with family members that are scattered. Being "The Rock Father," the folks at Kia Motors asked if I had any suggestions for some songs well-suited for a Rockin' Holiday Road Trip Playlist, and I certainly do. Below you'll find ten great seasonal songs (in no particular order) to be played as a part of your Holiday Road Trip Playlist.
Today we have a guest blog from a fellow Rock Father - Tom Stevens, guitarist/vocalist of NOKTURNEL, expert snake handler, and Disney aficionado. Together with his wife, Eloisa, they've got Orlando down to a science, and today Tom's dishing on Disney's BoardWalk Villas.
