You're so busy, but I know that's the way it is when you have kids involved in activities and stuff to do! Shopping for stuff for the house sounds fun, take some pics we can't wait to see the house! Hope your inlaws enjoy Vegas, I had fun with my girls.

Now that's what I call busy!

Sounds like another busy week. :)What are your thoughts about grocery day? Do you just hate it or is it not that bad? I personally despise it. It ranks right up there with scrubbing the toilets for me. I'm constantly trying to figure out how to make it a more pleasureable trip. Leaving out early and going kid-less has helped SOME. At least I come back with some sanity, but its still a huge chore that I dread.

Hi Jen, you asked for travel tips for your little guy so here I am.

Snack ideas:

* Goldfish
* Fruit
* Animal cookies
* Cheese sticks
* Sippy cups of favorite drinks in a small cooler

Toy ideas:

* Favorite board books
* Favorite stuffed animals
* Favorite blankie/pillow
* New toys from the dollar store (you might wrap them up individually to give him as gifts when he gets bored)
* DVD player with favorite Disney movies (we don't have one of these but we're contemplating spending the $200-$300 to get the over the seat kind)

Fun ideas:

* Point out any semi trucks, fire trucks, police cars that you see along the way (Snuggle Bug loves trucks).

* Sing silly kids songs (Snuggle Bug LOVES singing songs in the car- Itsy Bitsy Spider, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, ABCs, etc)

Factor in frequent stops for stretching...get out at a rest stop and let Miller run around in the grass or take him in to a gas station to pick out a snack.

These are some things that work for us. I hope they work for you on your trip! I'm sure it will go just fine! :)
