Fun In The Sunshine

When traveling with kids, you often hear this question - 'are we there yet?' These are 4 words that parents hear from the backseat a lot when traveling, especially during holiday travels.  Kids get bored easily and just sitting there without anything to keep them busy will prompt this question frequently. They are also probably excited to get to their destination to start the holiday festivities! Some kids have more energy than others, and sitting still for long periods of time can be difficult for them.  Small children that are required to ride in car seats have more of an issue [...]
