What we did: drove 700 miles in our car with a (almost) 3 year-old and a 9 month old
what we won't do again: drive straight through. It is good to know our kids can last all day, but we adults can't.
what we would do:
- stop every two hours. A lot of small Utah towns have really nice public parks, they are usually located somewhere along the main street in town.
- Bring a cd your kids like. We put some of my daughter's favorite videos onto cd so she could listen to them (didn't end up having to use them though) Just knowing you have a back up can really help.
