In addition to the normal traveling most people do, we take a 10+ hour road trip every Summer with out children. We have done it since I was pregnant with child #3. Honestly, it is typically much easier than I expect it to be.
Our Kid Friendly Travel Resources will help you to have an enjoyable travel experience with your children, too!
Traveling with our children seems beyond stressful, I get it. I have three boys and a million dogs… honestly, I now have 5 boys and 5 dogs. Just the thought of all of us packed together in one vehicle for an untold number of hours exhausts me.
But, it doesn’t have to be stressful nor exhausting! If you stop often, bring snacks, have bags (or boxes) of different things for everyone to do, it will actually be pretty enjoyable! Learning how to plan a road trip is key!
