Julia's Tips: 
Make the trip 
extra fun for us kids!!!

  • Bring a book on tape that we can listen to! 
  • Don't forget our portable CD player or tape player, so us younger kids can listen to our favorite Barney song... over and over again.
  • We kids LOVE  to play games in the car.
    Some suggestions: look for different license plate numbers, see who can add up license plate numbers of the cars that pass you the quickest. Play "I spy". See who can find the most out of state license plates. See who can find the most models of cars.
  • My mom, packs a special toy box just for car trips of toys, I don't get to see otherwise... it makes the trip extra fun.  I also like having juice boxes and fruit!
