Tracy Odell Thank You!

I love me some vacation, but I don't love getting there. Whether we're flying or driving, the journey is the hardest part for my family. My 3 1/2-year-old gets bored easily. My 11-month-old doesn't sleep through the drives like he used to. They are sitting close enough to touch (pinch, prod, poke) each other. Four or five hours in the car with them can feel like FOREVER.

Here are a few dos and don'ts (things I've learned the hard way) to make your next road trip go a bit more smoothly.

How about you -- what tips do you have for parents preparing for a summer road trip?
