on the road again...

well, today is the day where i scrounge the house looking for all the things we need to take with us on our regular road trip to Utah. I can't tell you how many times i have written down lists of things to take with us. I've got this all down to a system. This trip will be a really fast four day weekend --two days driving one day with my family and one day with Josh's-- a real whirl wind of a trip.

The biggest trick is keeping the kids occupied in the car for 8 hours.

Anyone have any new and bright ideas for entertaining a 3 year old and a 1 year old while traveling? (I'll also be flying to Oklahoma next week alone with the boys, any travel tips for planes would be appreciated too!)

Well, by far, the best travel tip I have to buy some portable dvd players for your car! We spent about 130.00 for a duel monitor dvd player just for trips to Utah. It's been the best... we just attach them to the backs of the seats.

For the plane...dum dum suckers. I just did it with my two and man they were as happy as ever!

I entertained my three year old for an hour by asking him to name opposites. First/last, big/little, fat/skinny, hot/cold, day/night, inside/outside, always/never, light/dark, good/bad, short/tall, top/bottom, etc. He would start rambling about funny things for each one... I was a big girl and he was a little boy. When I couldn't think of any more, I would start over saying the other word. He didn't seem to mind.
