I just came back from a nice family vacation. My husband and I took our almost 2-year-old son Jude out to Virginia Beach and we drove the entire way! That's 14 hours from St. Louis...Yikes!!!
The road trip went surprisingly well. We split the drive up over two days each way. I was prepared for the worst, but Jude handled the long car ride like a champ.
During my trip, I came up with three things that I think parents of toddlers should plan on when taking a long trip.
