We are waiting for our vacation next week to FL. We leave Thursday and are so excited! Not so excited about the 8 hour + drive with a 1 year old, but she isn't a terrible rider so we should do just fine.
She went on her first vacation at 1 month old...to Florida :) it was easier then because alls she did was sleep. She flew the first time when she was 6 months old (the trip was a disaster- but she did surprisingly wonderful through it all)....We have made 3 2 hour trips to Myrtle beach too.. So my pumpkin has been well versed in proper travel etiquette, and I am positive she will be on her best behavior! She won't cry because she is tired, whine when she wants a snack, scream because she wants out...and I know for a fact she won't smack herself in the head because she is frustrated.
The only thing I can do is prepare myself for every little thing that can possibly go wrong, and I will be fine...right?! Well the good thing is I drive an SUV so I have plenty of room for the over packing that's about to happen.
I will make a list of my must haves for long road trips with a toddler once I find out what I needed and didn't :)
Have a happy rest of the week bloggers!!
