Grayson, Tilley-Gray, and I are traveling over 22 hours this Christmas season in a car. I'm exhausted already. With a one year old and two dogs, this is a challenge, but we have developed a few travel traditions that make the trip more enjoyable.
I feel terrible keeping Tilley-Gray in a car seat for that long, but with a few of her favorite toys and a DVD player to play movies, she stays fairly happy for the long ride.
We have found that if we break the trip up by stopping for a nice lunch or dinner and walking around tiny towns we discover along the way, all three of us are happier. "Next year we are going to the Bahamas" is what we always say, but Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without all of our family.
Do you have tricks to making a road trip more fun? I'd love to hear!
