In about two months, we'll be taking our first long road-trip as a family. Neither one of my kiddos have experienced the joy of the good ole family car trip - and neither Jack nor I have had the "wonderful" experience of driving hours on end in a packed car, only to constantly be feeding, entertaining, and doing whatever it takes to keep the kidlets happy in a small space for what will seem like forever.
We have this luxury in mid-May, when we hop in our car (nope, we have decided to forego minivan shopping unless a super duper steal comes along - we pay our car off this month and would like to use that payment to save some money to put a down payment on a nice minivan in the coming months). This means we'll be cruisin' in the Ford Escape.
We already have a game plan for packing (it is strategic according to our seasoned traveler friends), but I need your tips!
What are some things to pack, not to pack, and awesome games/activities for the kidlets? They're 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 and our drive to the Cleveland-area will be about 15+ hours. What is other advice that you'd like to share?
We need whatever it takes to survive!
