Hi there, I have a question for you. I have a DD whose 11, so this isn't really my area exactly. My step son is coming to stay with us for 2 weeks this summer and when DH goes to pick him up they are riding a train for about 6 hours and doing some sightseeing in Chicago and then a 2 1/2 hour flight to Texas. On the way back we are driving to Michigan.
My two questions are:
1. I usually will make a small travel box for my dd for car/plane trips with acitivites for her to do and snacks. DH and I have only been married a year and we have only had his son once, DH is in the military so he only gets to see him once or twice a year. My step son is 7 and just finishing first grade and I know he likes cars/trucks. Any suggestions on a few small things I can put in the box to help keep his boredom on the train/plane to a minimum?
2. He is going to be here in Texas for a week before we head back to Michigan. Obviously, I have a girl, so we don't have many things other than board games, computer and video games for him to play with, not that I want him inside the whole time he is here. Any suggestions on a few things to get him, I don't want to buy him a ton of stuff for him to just take back to his mom's house, when we see him at Christmas we'll be going to Michigan. DH will be taking him to SeaWorld and the local city pool and park, and we have a scooter he can use and my DD's bike, but I am sort of at a loss for how exactly to prepare so he is comfortable while he's here.
