We went on the road trip with a plan B to turn around and go to Disney if it was too bad but it all went smoothly. Maybe it helps that we were braced for a worst case scenario, I don’t know.

The boys did very well with spending the better part of 2 days stuck in their carseats with only a small selection of books and toys for entertainments. We had no iPad or DVD player, something people told me again and again was a must have.   There was very little whining and it was always quickly stopped with a snack or some running around at the next stop. They were models of perfect behavior and I couldn’t be more proud of them.

We had a good time visiting family, the New York Renaissance Faire, hiking in the Catskill Mountains and visiting Woodstock (no self respecting hippie would skip that!). We also enjoyed a couple of days in Long Island where my husband grew up and visited Adventureland and had real New York Pizza and Chinese food.

Despite some traffic and a car rental swap the trip was a success and I no longer fear the idea of a road trip with toddlers.

Hubby is already talking about driving to Georgia for Thankgiving which would be a shorter drive than what we just did. I said “Ok, as long as we are not driving on Wednesday or Sunday” so what dates is he looking for? You guessed it, driving on Wednesday and Sunday ::facepalm::. We’ll see…
