The Car Trip

How does a mommy keep the peace when stuck in traffic??
Surprise toys!! Check out this adorable travel Thomas train and track! This provided us with hours of peace & quiet.
Then there was the Thomas story board (thanks Christi - this is what you gave Christian for Christmas). Christian and I made up story after story about Thomas and his friends.
Let's not forget McKenna. She loved reading books in the car.
We have accumulated some great "car toys" that we don't ever play with at home. And they are all nicely packed away for the next car trip.

Good idea! I could certainly learn a thing or two from you experienced mommies!

It just takes a little planning and surprise toys, but car trips can be very fun, right? SO glad for you!

I love the picture of McKenna reading a book? You can't start them too young!
Love, Grandmom
