Travel ideas....

We sill soon be going on a mid-winter beach trip. My kids have travelled a bit, so give me your best advice...not the old fashioned "keep them busy." I want your "Think outside the box" experience! My DS is a sensory seeker who has never gotten enough "crash and burn" so I need help. (Yes, he will go in a stroller...he is 5! However, if he is happy, I am happy. I would rather travel with the thing and not need it!)

Wish us luck!

Okay here is something we are considering for our trip to DC. It's a backpack wth a handle for the parents. I know it sounds mean but it's really cute and somtimes nessassary. Leanna has taken off on us more times than I can count and it slows down the bumping lol. I'm planning on adding weight to the backpack as well.


edited wrong link lol that was a stupid article I hated lol

Have you already made reservations? If not, my best advice ... VACATION RENTAL! Not only is it cheaper, you do not have to worry about other ppl in the hotel. We did this last summer and we LOVED it. The house was really, really small, but I think I found one for this summer much larger, same area,
