Traveling for the Holidays

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!


  1. Lindsey-Does Tilley-Gray like the larger BlaBlas? the 18" ones or the 12" ones? Trying to decide which one my little one would your post as always and hope you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  2. We traveled back and forth from PA to VA every other weekend for nearly a year with out daughter. DVDs helped as did little snacks like corn puffs without yellow cheese powder on them and those Gerber yogurt bites.
    Have a nice holiday.
