Car travel with your toddler

Dear Deb,
    I’d like to share with you a trick that made what could have been a miserable trip into a fun memory--proof that a little effort goes a long way. My wife, son Kyle, age 2, and I had to travel half way across the country by car in a limited amount of time.  Our energetic two year old wouldn’t be a happy camper strapped into a car seat for hours.  We decided to stop every 2 hours or so of driving, at small town parks, playgrounds, rest areas and nature settings.  A 15-20 minute stop was enough to help Kyle exercise and get rid of that cooped up energy.  We also made sure to check into a motel with a swimming pool around 5pm.
            A singing family--all the way down the road,
            John, Tammy and Kyle

Vacation Packing
...get it right the first time

At one time or another we all have packed too many clothes for a vacation, perhaps never even changing from a favorite pair of jeans or sun dress.  The more we travel, hauling our belongings with us, the more we realize how little we really need.
