This last week we packed up and headed to my small hometown in Wisconsin to visit friends and family. We like to drive because let's face it, flying can be pricey especially with having to rent a car and the large amount of cheese curds and other goodies I tend to bring home with us. Traveling is something that I loved to do before I became a mom and was something that I wanted to continue and introduce J to too. I found that traveling with an infant was relatively easy as long as you had all of the essentials and they had a full belly and were dry. Once J became a toddler, it became a little more difficult to keep him entertained; especially on those cross-country car rides. Since I was unpacking J's backpack today, I thought I would share some of my favorite activities and car friendly tips and items for our road trips.
