I am brand spanking new to this site and so far, it seems like a God send!! Our whole family is planning a trip to North Carolina in July (all the way from CA) and my little family (me, DH and DD7 and DD4) are planning on driving, with beloved crochety uncle. About 5000 miles round trip. :-O Now, this will be my first REAL road trip and definitely the first my kids. DH and his whole family has made this journey about 100 times or so. We have taken our kids to Disneyland several times (about a 5.5 hour drive) and they do REALLY well on that trip, but I am really nervous about 3-4 days in the car. Constantly. LOL
What I am looking for here are:
1. New and interested, even unusual, ways of keeping kids entertained during drive.
2. How to eat healthy and remain somewhat active during the drive.
3. How to stay SANE for the adults! LOL
Thanks in advance for any and all tips!
