We did had a van, so my sister and I had our own space…no fighting with a seat of our own. I can remember reading, drawing, coloring, doing homework and sleeping. It made the hours pass by quicker that way.
I truly think during the 70’s and 80’s, we didn’t have that instant gratification that kids seem to know so well now days.
Our kids are still younger than my sister and I were when we took our first trip to California. We have driven them to Idaho, Oregon and to our favorite vacation spot, Lake Chelan, Washington. I try to have goodies lined up for them. It is much easier now with them each having an iPad…movies, games and music, all at their fingertips. When they were little, they always would find a tote, full of things to keep them busy in the car.
What about you? What makes a road trip easier on you and your family?
