Road Tripin' with little kids

A good friend of mine and I went on a vacation--if that's what you call a road trip with 6 kids all under the age of 6!

I had a great time, but I learned a few things along the way. Let me share 'em with you!
  1. Make sure the seating arrangements are the most ideal for the situation. If needed, place the oldest between the babies to insure the little ones are played with, pacified, and have ample attention given to them.
  2. If the DVD player is on, make sure that the movie is what my Princess wants to watch. If this rule is not followed, beware of the incessant whining. (don't say I didn't warn you!) 
  3. Upon arrival to your destination, make sure there is enough Mexican food to last the week. I'm just sayin'
  4. On the subject of food, don't drive with 6 kids if you're on a food plan. Your eating habits will plummet when you sink into that huge bag of Hershey's and grab a caffeinated soda (something you haven't had in 5 months!)
  5. Make sure the driver is paying close attention to the direction he/she is going. That will save you at least 20 minutes: 10 minutes going the wrong direction and 10 minutes finding the freeway again! 
If you follow these 4 simple steps, the road trip will be smooth sailing! But if not, it just might take 5 hours to reach your destination that is only 3 hours away. I'm just sayin'

(in all honesty, we had a fantastic time. The rides were smooth, the food was yummy, the conversation was great and best of all we got away from the norm for a few days! Thanks friend!)


  1. You could have driven to Florida in 5 hours! I'm just saying. 80 degree weather at the beach now so make some plans!
    Glad you guys had a good time. I am sure the Daddys missed you.

    Love to all, XOXOXOXOXO

  2. where'd ya go?!?! Looks like fun, regardless!!! :)
